To Err is Human

In An Essay on Criticism, Alexander Pope penned the famous line: "To err is human; to forgive, divine."

Yet God requires all of us to forgive, and each of us to forgive all:

"I, the Lord, will forgive whom I will forgive, but of you it is required to forgive all men." (D&C 64:10)

The doctrine is simple, though not always easy to apply.  In his Essay on Forgiveness, C.S. Lewis, one of Christianity's most articulate apologists, explains why this is so.
