A listener emails the show, explaining that he was abused for several years, and his abuser won't acknowledge the wrongdoing. He asks Father Dave how he can find forgiveness in his heart if this person won’t admit their offense, and wonders if forgiveness is dependent upon another person being willing to repent. Father Dave explains that we are called to forgive even if someone won't admit that they are wrong, and that forgiveness also helps us heal.

Dr. John Bergsma, scripture scholar and friend of the show, stops by the studio to help Father Dave answer questions of faith.
