Forgiveness is a mark of the community of the followers of Jesus, according to the Apostle's Creed. It is also often said in New Age self-help circles that you should forgive because it is good for you. While we recognize the importance and power of forgiveness we also discuss some of the ways in which forgiveness is misused to keep people quiet about injustice. We discuss the problem of the just world fallacy, our frustration with the Babylon Bee, why all sins aren't equal, Tao Te Ching chapter 5, the Book of Job, and the writings of Fred Alfred and Miroslav Volf.
