Step Six of Religious Recovery begins the section on forgiveness by first taking inventory of our own past mistakes of religiously abusing others. Before judging another it’s important to examine our own lives to see if we have injured another in the name of religion. We tend to rationalize and justify our behavior, but if we can see abuse for what it is — in most cases simply misguided zeal — we can be more forgiving with ourselves and with others.
