Re: Guilty of Unprincipled Forgiveness or Model Christian?

Interestingly, he forgave Clay without any expectation of relief from his personal pain. He's told me that he feels exactly the same as he did prior to publicly forgiving the killer...awful. He believes that he will always be sorrowful from now on and it will be years before his suffering will gradually subside. He loves his wife and daughter immensely and misses them terribly. He expects Bryan Clay to pay for his crimes here on earth but genuinely hopes that Clay will repent and find forgiveness through Christ. That is what he was referring to when he said that "if he kissed me on the cheek, I would kiss him back." He is speaking of a hope of remorse and repentance from this man. I asked him what he would say to Clay if he met him. He replied, "I forgive you. That's it." Art has a clear, uncluttered view of his Christian duty. It's popular to term it "radical obedience" nowadays. His is a breathtaking example of Christian love. I'm honored to know him.

I find all the above comments regarding Arturo Martinez Sanchez to be fascinating and enlightening. I have the distinct advantage of being Arturo's personal friend so I can shed some light on his stance. Art Martinez, as he known here in Las Vegas, is a strong and principled Christian man. He is far from naive or reactive; he is a lifelong Roman Catholic follower of Christ who attended seminary as a young man. He is thoughtful and well educated. He met his wife, Yadira, while both were attending law school in Mexico. His forgiveness comes from a position of strength. No weakling, Art was an undefeated boxer in Mexico despite a childhood accident that cost him an eye. He is a boxing coach whom champions turn to for training. He has worked for years in the demanding trade of union electrician. He forgave the man who damaged him and killed his beloved wife and daughter as an act of worship and obedience to God. He simply believes that forgiveness is demanded of Christians. He has done so independent of Bryan Clay's remorse or lack thereof. The decision to forgive is between him and God. Period.
