i cannot believe that you are wishing suffering for your own daughter!!
Your model of belief does not have forgiveness.
What absolute BULL#T.
I know that she will make mistakes - all of us will make mistakes, including YOU. Forgiveness has nothing to do with education, or learning through
experience. DO I WANT HER TO SUFFER?
OF COURSE NOT! You have no CONCEPT of how much a parent suffers
when their child is suffering. It is heartbreaking. So, I shared my own
mistakes and experiences and lessons learned with my children, in order to help them avoid pitfalls.
If you want to twist that into "wishing suffering" on her, that's your own asinine twist on what I said. I know she WILL endure suffering. It's part
of the human condition. I'm here to support and LOVE HER, unconditionally, while she LIVES WITH HER OWN MISTAKES. I've done my level best, and
continue to do so, to guide, mentor, teach, and nurture my children.
NOTHING THEY CAN DO or HAVE DONE changes my devotion and profound, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE for them.
A truly loving "God" would STILL love its creation, no matter what they did. You know SO LITTLE about maturity, parenting, and unconditional love
that it is truly sad.
YOU are the one who said, "If my child deserved it, I would allow their hand to be cut off."
That's the difference.
FORGIVENESS is, "oh, honey, I'm so sorry that you're hurting. What is it you think you did, or could have done differently, in this situation? I know
you're doing your best. I love you JUST THE WAY YOU ARE. THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO OR SAY that will EVER change that."
THAT is a loving parent.
As opposed to:
"Go, have your hand chopped off, you stupid sinner. You deserve it. And when you get back I'll humiliate, reject, and wag my head for shame that you
are such a LOSER, even though I've TOLD you not to steal cookies. YOU DON"T LISTEN!"
That is NOT a loving, compassionate parent. Nor is it a just, forgiving "God."
THAT is a selfish, hard-hearted, cruel, arrogant and insensitive TYRANT.
