Of course you can

It is completely mind-boggling for Christians to believe that they have a problem with forgiving someone. Our Lord had an encounter with his contemporaries people because he dared to say to someone “Your sins are forgiven”, yet this is what everyone expected when he came to the Tabernacle to deal with his sin.

It shall be forgiven him

The big problem is that we are authorized to forgive as a gateway to our own forgiveness from on high.
