Frequently Asked Questions
It can be difficult to say sorry but a good feeling when our apologies are accepted. But another question, to forgive and not forget is it wrong?
So can a person be guilty at the same time without regret?
The presence of guilt is the evidence of wrongdoing. Guilt is not wrong, but it is the signal that there is a wrong which must be made right. We live in an imperfect world; the realization of wrongdoing may serve two purposes. The individual will dive deeper into atrocity and iniquity, or it may serve as a platform to acknowledge the guilt, by attempting to do that which is right.
The mistake is when guilt is connected to feelings, guilt is more than a feeling, it is the demand of a responsibility and the bearing of the consequent of the actions. However, no one is capable of undoing the cause of guilt, but God. For if we as human were capable of undoing the cause of guilt, shall we not also be able to prevent the many reasons of guilt? Therefore, unless guilt is acknowledged on our part as individuals, by looking to a solution greater than who we are, which is God, guilt will always be wrongly viewed as a feeling. For this reason, when there is a guilt of sadness, happiness is sought after by doing happy things as a means to eradicate the feeling of the guilt, but to no avail. Whereas, others through Stubbornness, they are driven into a deep denial. Or where there is no God conscience, guilt will cause hardness to the feeling of the individual.
In order to avoid those consequences and more, we must all allow God to deal with our guilt, and sin. Guilt is not necessarily a sin, but the presence of the human guilt, is the evidence of a wrong action or actions.
So then, in the awareness of guilt, rather than attributing it to a feeling, let’s ask the questions of the cause, the motive and consequence. Then we can take the responsibility, not as a burden to bear, but looking to a greater solution by taking it to the Lord in prayer.

We should never be discouraged
