Forgiveness I'm not saying that I have been made perfect like Christ. What I am saying is that true forgiveness requires you to forget their transgression. True forgiveness requires you to clear away the scar tissue that the person transgressing created on your heart/mind/soul, by forgiving and forgetting. For example, if a wife is cheated on by her husband, and she never forgets what he did to her, she is not in a state of forgiveness. She still has the scar tissue on her heart, because she hasn't forgotten her husband's sin. She hasn't forgotten because she hasn't forgiven, and she hasnt forgiven because she hasn't forgotten. So the two are mutually inclusive; you cannot do one without the other.--- Am I saying that we can forgive and forget through our own inherit goodness that naturally dwells in us? I am not. God is love, and we need God to forgive each other.--- If you are truly forgiving your enemy, you are not keeping a physical record of wrongs, and you are not keeping a mental record of wrongs, because the physical and mental recordkeeping are the same things. When Jesus died for our sins, God fully forgot our sins, because Jesus atoned for them. God will not remember our sins when Jesus has already died for them.

Forgiveness Forgiveness IS forgetting:
"Love does not keep a record of wrongs"
"For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sins no more."
Isaiah 64:9 Be not angry, Jehovah, until exceeding, and do not remember iniquity forever. Behold! look, please; all of us are Your people.
