OK, I have a problem for all my reader to consider.
I believe in forgiveness. I practise it with regularity. I am the recipient of more than I deserve.
Someone betrayed me, and seriously injured a kinsman, in ways not immediately evident, but nonetheless real and lasting. The betrayer has repented, and I have forgiven this person. I do not wish to see him roasting over a lake of burning sulphur. I do not wish to kill him, and I do not wish to do...things...to him with electrical wiring.
I do not speak of "betrayal" and "injury" lightly.
On the OTHER hand, I have zero interest in having anything to do with him. At all. Ever again.
My thinking is, if a dog bites me, but the next time I see him, he wags his tail, I am disinclined to pet him.
The person wants to get together, y'know, remember the good times.
I don't want to remember anything at all, because it just leads to pain.
I don't like pain.
I've had enough from this person.
So, is it self-protection, or self-contradiction; hypocrisy, if you will.
I have few moral ambiguities in my life.
They make me uncomfortable.
Feel free to comment. I know you're out there.
