“Forgiving others is reallyhard. In fact, here is what I am learning. It is impossible apart from the power of the Spirit.”

Our passion is to help Christians apply the Gospel of Jesus to our ability to forgive, our residual shame, loneliness and addictions. 

The Forgiving Path was designed based upon Dr. Bill Senyard’s breakthrough work in the area of Biblical Forgiving. Dr. Senyard was a Lead Pastor for over 23 years in the US and Canada. He is the author of “Fair Forgiveness” and “Can’t Forgive: A Forty Day Devotional”. He is a recognized expert on the topic of “How to Forgive.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What's Included?

Subscription includes full access to The Forgiving Path, as many times as you want, for as many hurts and wounds as you need, 24/7 for the entire subscription period. 

Subscription includes the Before and After Surveys as well as immediate analysis of the impact according to the four forgiving metrics.

What types of crimes, or hurts or wounds should I bring to The Forgiving Path?

We suggest that you pray that the Holy Spirit would show you the specific crime, hurt or wound to consider in your journey. There is no “right” or “wrong” one to pick. The Forgiving Path works best if you pick a single specific crime, hurt or wound that you have struggled to move past. We do not recommend a chronic series of crimes. Just pick a single one that you can clearly remember. We ask that you stay with that specific crime, hurt or wound through the nine stations. Likely, you will think of others as you are in the middle of the Path. That is how a normal brain works. Write it down for later. Remember, the subscription gives you access to The Path for as many crimes, hurts or wounds for the length of your subscription period. 

How many times can I go through the path?

As many times as you want or need, for as many crimes, hurts or wounds for the length of your subscription period. 

How is the science calculated?

The Forgiving Path Before and After Surveys are based upon standardized, widely published, scientifically-validated Forgiving Surveys, designed to determine the immediate impact of Forgiving “interventions”, series of counseling, conferences, paths, and educational series. Have the participants self-assessed responses on the surveys note changes in four accepted forgiving metrics. As a result of the ‘intervention,”

  • Do participants feel less motivation to AVOID the perpetrator.
  • Do participants feel less need for VENGEANCE?
  • Do participants feel more BENEVOLENCE or compassion for the perpetrator?
  • And lastly, do participants feel that they have experienced JUSTICE for the crime or hurt committed against them? 

Ideally, the % Changes for AVOIDANCE and VENGEANCE should be negative and BENEVOLENCE and JUSTICE should be positive. 

The average %Changes for participants in The Forgiving Path are as follows:

  • 26% Reduction in Avoidance
  • 28% Reduction in Vengeance
  • 48% Increase in Benevolence
  • 100% Increase in Justice

For more analysis of your particular numbers, go to the Analyzing Results Page after you finish The Forgiving Path and both surveys.

In order to further enhance your sensory experience in The Path, we highly recommend that you also gather the following household items to have with you as you go through The Path. Please note that you can go through The Path without them. 

  • A mirror
  • A puzzle piece
  • Newspaper or magazine that you don’t want to keep
  • Candle with matches

Do I need to go through all of the 9 Stations in one sitting?

We recommend that you do it all in one sitting, but it is not required. If you have to shut your computer or smartphone down, all you need to do is log back in using your email and password. In the menu, go to The Forgiving Path tab and go straight to the station where you left off. 

Our Mission

Applying the Gospel of Christ to the real lives of real people living in the real world.

What Do We Believe?

All Scripture is self-attesting and being Truth, requires our unreserved submission in all areas of life. The infallible Word of God, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is a complete and unified witness to God’s redemptive acts culminating in the incarnation of the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks. On this sure foundation we affirm these Essentials:

  • We believe in one God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. To Him be all honor, glory and praise forever! He is a pursuing God who intimately loves His people. His ultimate passion is to love and be loved by the people He has rescued from this groaning creation.
  • Jesus Christ, the living Word, became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. He who is true God became true man united in one Person forever. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. On the third day He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He now is our High Priest and Mediator. Strictly because of what He accomplished 2000 years ago, His perfectly faithful life, His death on the Cross, and His resurrection, three things have been purchased for all of God’s people. First, now God cannot judge us again, ever. He will never condemn us or reject us. He has judged, condemned and reject Jesus in our place. Secondly, Jesus’ perfect faithfulness earned all of God the Father’s love per the Torah. Mysteriously that enduring perfect love was transferred to our life-record. Now, God has to love us with all of the love in the universe, as much as the Father loves the Son and the Son loves the Father. He can’t love us any more or less than He does right now. Third, we have been adopted to be children of infinite honor. Now God, all because of the work of Christ, is actually proud of us.
  • The Holy Spirit has come to glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to our hearts. He convicts us of sin and draws us to the Savior. Indwelling our hearts, He gives new life to us, empowers and imparts gifts to us for service. His passion is to make us really experience the height, width, depth and length of the love of God for us right now. He instructs and guides us into all truth, and seals us for the day of redemption.
  • Being estranged from God and condemned by our sinfulness, our salvation is wholly dependent upon the work of God’s free grace. God credits His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, thereby justifies them in His sight. Only such as are born of the Holy Spirit and receive Jesus Christ become children of God and heirs of eternal life.
  • The true Church is composed of all persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit are united together in the body of Christ. The Church finds her visible, yet imperfect, expression in local congregations where the Word of God is preached in its purity and the sacraments are administered in their integrity; where scriptural discipline is practiced, and where loving fellowship is maintained. For her perfecting, she awaits the return of her Lord.
  • Jesus Christ will come again to the earth—personally, visibly, and bodily—to judge the living and the dead, and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God. “Even so, come, Lord Jesus” (Revelation 22:20).
  • The Lord Jesus Christ commands all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to make disciples of all nations. Obedience to the Great Commission requires total commitment to “Him who loved us and gave Himself for us.” He calls us to a life of self-denying love and service. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10). It is by the work of the Holy Spirit in us that we can be more and more motivated to want to go and tell the good news to others. To that end, we are instructed to ask of the Spirit daily to make us feel the love of God that Jesus purchased for ourselves and His love for others as well.
