How does forgiveness relate to Faith? The only way to achieve true forgiveness is to be connected to the Forgiver, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In order to be connected to Him you must believe that He exists, died for our sins, brought Himself back to life, and is in Heaven connecting us back to the Heavenly Father.
“In order to forgive and be forgiven, we must have faith.”
