Default Redemption - 01-23-2008, 05:30 AM
Does everybody deserve a second chance to do better? Think criminals and the like.

It's never everybody. Any all inclusive statements are always too extreme but many criminals do deserve a second chance but not all. I would guess that the most violent criminals might not deserve a second chance but all others probably do.

This would apply to most people too.

Phoo, you got in before I could say it.
But, yeah, it's all relative. What did they do? Were they remorseful? What were the circumstances? Are they ill? Did they attempt to reform? Is it a first offense? One of multiple?

All these questions have a bearing on whether someone can be forgiven. I think 'redemption' in the religious sense is a bit more sketchy, as only that person, and maybe not even they, can tell if they are 'redeemed' or not.

I think forgiveness is a sort of 'scale of grey' rather than a black-white proposition. There are degrees of forgiveness, but with forgiveness at any level usually comes at least a bit of distrust. Even if someone is forgiven, it's unlikely that their transgression will be forgotten.

And, ultimately, no forgiveness is really any good unless it comes from ones' self. If I forgive you, but you do not forgive yourself, it's not really worth much.

I agree with Moshi... I think some people could deserve redemption but others, it's inevitable that they won't improve and they'll continue to do what got them in trouble in the first place.
