To Forgive The Unforgivable by Tahnja To Forgive The Unforgivable by Tahnja
Acrylic on flat sheet of canvas.

Standard A4 size.

To forgive the unforgivable...that was not just a standard Jesus set for us all, it was a call to be just like Him, for He said that unless we forgive, we shall not be forgiven.

Pope John Paul II forgave the man who tried to kill him. I love him so much.

Forgiveness to him comes in form of a bullet to the head

Beautiful artwork, and a wonderful point. Many people think that some people are undeserving of forgiveness. The truth is we are all undeserving of forgiveness, but God offers it to all.

Indeed JPII has long been my wonderful example of what it means to follow Jesus. I am grateful for all the wonderful things he did that showed us what it means to love Jesus with all one's heart.

Thank you so much Sonia for your wonderful friendship and support. It means a lot to me....

Fine, forgive him. But for the public safety he should never see the light of day.

I didn't say release him....just that to hate him makes us no better than the hate he carries inside of him.

He certainly must be accountable for what he has done...there's no question about that. But for the sake of the others he affects to commit more violence, I pray that at some point in time he may be turned into a good man. I can only pray for that....God bless you
