Gang Stalking: Do Not Allow Them To Continue Hurting You!
There is no question regarding the devastating emotional effects of injustice in the form of long term psychological attacks that include gang stalking and covert physical torture. It is especially hurtful when neighbors, relatives, or former friends begin to participate in these attacks. The emotional wounds inflicted are deep and often enduring. The Bible's counsel to "continue forgiving one another freely" (Colossians 3:13) may be very difficult to apply in this case. After all, the offenders have shown no remorse, and have not offered an apology. What basis do we have to offer forgiveness? What sort of forgiveness can and should be given? How can we benefit if we do?
It is true that those who treat others in an extremely unjust way cannot escape judgement from God. And, we have the right to pursue any legal avenues available for seeking redress. However, if you have suffered an unresolved injustice, please consider this: Holding on to anger and resentment can be very harmful to you personally. Waiting for an admission or apology that never comes, we may only get more and more upset. Being obsessed with the injustice may keep the anger seething within us, with devastating effects on our emotional and physical health. In effect, we allow the one who hurt us to continue hurting us!
Some who value the Bible's guidance have discovered that even in cases of extreme injustice they were able, in time, to make a decision to forgive in the sense of no longer harboring resentment. While they may not excuse the wrongdoing, they refused to be consumed with anger. “Let anger alone and leave rage.” (Psalm 37:8) This is often a wise decision. It gives us a measure of relief and we are able to get on with our lives. The ability to resolve anger within ourselves protects us mentally, emotionally and physically. It allows us to focus our precious and limited resources on the things that really matter in life.
The practical benefits of such forgiveness can be seen in the life of Eva Kor, a survivor of Auschwitz Nazi Deadly Lab Experiments. 76 year old Kor says she has forgiven Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who conducted experiments on her and her twin sister, Miriam, at the Auschwitz concentration camp.
“Here I am, this little guinea pig from Auschwitz, and I have the power to forgive Josef Mengele! And he can’t do anything about it,” the diminutive, energetic woman who will turn 76 said during a recent visit to Auschwitz. “I stopped being a victim, and that makes me a very powerful person.” Indeed, for survivor Eva Kor, forgiveness is freedom!
Interestingly, some have disagreed with Kor's forgiveness, feeling that it is improper for her to forgive such an "abhorrent monster." However, note Kor's response: “If they like being victims, it’s their choice,” Kor said. “I don’t want to be a victim ever again.” Yes Kor has freed herself of slavery to hurt and bitterness as a result of her forgiving spirit. No doubt, that 'freedom' contributes to the vigorous and outgoing spirit she displays at the age of 76!
