I agree wholeheartedly with Dr. Stanley’s biblical admonition to get out of the blame game business. But in cases of physical and emotional abuse that do not subside when mercy, forgiveness and grace are applied, a sick person will continue to prey upon a person made vulnerable without boundaries (including unfortunately, a relationship free of accountability. . . where a door remains open for repeated abuse). Be wary of applying this message in such a way that you believe forgiveness means letting a repeat offender back into your life without boundaries. It can become a form of enabling sin. Not every person will see your open forgiveness and grace as a pointer to Christ. Some will see this as a weakness, and they will prey upon it. Forgive but set boundaries so you don’t enable the continued sin of others.
