Forgive and Forget

I've often thought about this saying over the years, and I've now come to the conclusion that it's un-Christian. I think proper forgiveness and reconciliation is about remembering everything that has gone before and deciding that it won't continue to control you, create bitterness and perpetuate a conflict. If we forget, how do we learn?

Forgive and forget sounds like a strategy that means things catch up with you in the end.
