In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"The questions surrounding forgiveness produce varying thoughts in regards to the action. Is forgiveness a moral obligation? Is this moral obligation tied to religious duty? And, if forgiveness is tied to religious duty, then does it become a moral prerogative? In order to answer these questions, there is a need for much philosophical and theological debate. Rather than allude to the pretense that I know a lot about philosophy or theology, I intend to focus on forgiveness as a moral obligation—one that includes all of us."
