I actually have 15 questions based on recent reading I have done regarding forgiveness.  It seems that there is an emerging spirit of the times which is quite critical of what forgiveness is and what it does.  So, I will address each of the criticisms, one at a time, which I have found for your reaction.  First of 15 criticisms: Forgiveness is a fad creating pressure on people to forgive.

I have a book entitled, Forgiveness Is a Choice. It is deliberate that I chose the word “Choice ” to emphasize that forgiveness as a moral virtue is under the control of free will, not of external social pressure.  You are free to begin forgiving when you are ready.  Pressure from others, if it is too insistent, can lead to a quick and superficial “forgiveness.”
