 Love's Delight in Reconciliation

Show Summary Details


Love attempts to restore broken bonds – our responsibility is to maintain and cultivate community. Reconciliation lacks the judicial sting of the category of forgiveness, but it nevertheless does not avoid the burden of confronting someone with the truth about their sin. Love does not entail self‐deception or deception of others.

Keywords: bonds; community; deception; reconciliation; responsibility; self‐deception; sin
