Forgiving bin Laden In Paul Wood’s Viewpoint column “Ten years later” [see September 2011, page 5], I was pleased you gave witness to our Christian duty to forgive, but am saddened that you are unable to forgive Osama bin Laden, even after his death. As you know, forgiveness is not for the benefit of those who have wronged us, but for ourselves. Forgiveness does not condone their behavior, nor free them from its consequences. Rather, forgiveness frees us from their behavior, so when we remember it, we will be free of anger, hurt and resentments that only harm us and hold us back from the joy God wants for us. Obviously, your anger over bin Laden’s actions had no effect on him, but they still seem to have an effect on you, and possibly on readers of your column.
