Without forgiveness, our attempts at justice become hateful and self-righteous. Notice too how Brad cleverly projects his own error (buying the wrong product) onto the supposed offender. Classic.

In which Brad prepares a 'normal' breakfast and answers an important question: Is preaching God's all-inclusive love capitulation to 'the world'? See text beneath the video for the extended Q & A.
