Televangelist Pat Robertson on Monday advised a woman to forgive her cheating husband because she had been forgiven for “what you did to God.”
“I found out not too long ago that my husband hasn’t been completely faithful to me,” a woman named Megan told Robertson. “And even though I say that I forgive him, I still feel some anger and hurt… How does one overcome something like this?”
The TV preacher offered this advice: “How do you forgive? You think about what you did to God, and you say, ‘God forgave me. And if God forgave me of all this then I can forgive somebody else.'”
“You have to name it, and say, ‘Lord, in the name of Jesus, I forgive my husband, I forgive him,'” he continued. “What you need to do is say, ‘Give me love for him. I ask for love for my husband.’ You need to have love in your heart for him.”
“Perfect love casts out fear, casts out torment.”
