Corrie ten Boom, in her book Tramp for the Lord had these words to say regarding forgiveness: It was 1947--. I had come from Holland to defeated Germany with the message that God forgives. It was the truth they needed most to hear in that bitter, bombed-out land, and I gave them my favorite mental picture. Maybe because the sea is never far from a Hollander’s mind, I like to think that that’s where forgiven sins are thrown. "When we confess our sins," I said, "God casts them into the deepest ocean, gone forever--. Then God places a sign out there that says ‘No Fishing Allowed’"
