...on past transgressions and seeming perpetual punishment

In the Bible, the horrible wolf - Saul of Tarsus, repents his violent persecution of Christians. He converts and he goes on to become the Apostle Paul or Saint Paul, as he is known to most people. He is quoted widely and accepted as one of the most pivoting and important leaders of the early Christian Church.

That was Saul back in the first century. If he lived today, would he suffer a seemingly perpetual punishment for his early transgressions? Is there a point in life that relieves the individual of the nonsense committed as a youth or as a young adult? 

There must be a point of forgiveness. There must a time that allows for the acceptance that the individual has adapted from and atoned for early transgressions. There must be a time to forget and there must be a time when all are willing to forgive. Offered for consideration on this Friday evening.
