Forgiving 70x70 does not preclude relinquishing one’s moral agency to withdraw consent to further abuse. The power of the Atonement is greater to heal a wounded soul than the messups can wound. But only if the perpetrator repents will that grace and power be experienced by the sinner.

Thank you. Having been-- until recently-- immersed in social media (thanks, Pres. Nelson!), I especially appreciate your quick note on 'current firestorms'. The reminder to not 'roll around in other people's mud' reminds me of an observation from Spencer W. Kimball-- that we far too easily "become antienemy instead of pro-kingdom of God". In other words, we roll around in the mud instead of facing the light and ascending towards it. May we face the light and grow in it.

That is good advice generally. However as to adultery the D&C limits it to ONCE.

Tender mercies. Beautifully written. Once the 10 day Social Media fast has ended, perhaps a new movement is in store #Forgive
