Example text

The response to being wronged Worthington (1998) equates our physiological response to being hurt or rejected with classic fear conditioning in which we ®rst freeze as we tense in the face of danger and then move into a ®ght¯ight stress response, submitting if neither is possible. He offers a detailed argument that `unforgiveness' is based on fear conditioning, though he admits that some researchers argue that it is angerbased. Forgiveness: themes and issues 23 Hargrave and Sells (1997) point to four basic responses in people who feel their trust and love has been violated.

There is much to be gained from making forgiveness a goal in all things we do rather than holding onto our hurts in an unhealthy manner. Desmond Tutu knew what it was like to live in a society dominated by racism and oppression.

For the Christian, forgiveness brings release. I believe forgiveness enables us to live lives that can be ®lled with the ability to reconcile because forgiveness is a gift, an act of mercy. It is the path to healing. For true repentance and forgiveness, the person must come to terms with the past, in the light of what he or she knows now, in order to move on.
