Redemption is one of the greatest opportunities in this life. And yet it seems that, on a human level, it is contingent upon the approval of others. We are redeemed because others accept the belief we have been redeemed. But why is it up to others to decide who are merely peers? In reality, true salvation is only offered divinely in spirit and by self choice in flesh. Forgive yourself even when others will not. Because not even for one second will they ever wear your burdens.
