While attending a counseling seminar as part of an in-service program for a district school, this writer had the opportunity to hear a practicing psychiatrist speak on the subject of guilt and its effects on people. He stated that some eighty- –five per cent of his patients’ health issues were the result of guilt and their inability to set failures aside and move forward with their lives. The Bible is a wonderful textbook on the subject of guilt and how it can be removed so that the individual is no longer plagued by the mistakes of the past. Scripture is filled with God’s promises of forgiveness and cleansing.
