As an offshoot of my own life a moral dilemma has appeared.
Can you forgive someone the ultimate sin under any circumstances?

Compulsive liars, for example, lie unendingly. I've seen someone who lied about the same thing more than 30 times in one day, each time changing the story slightly, and each time swearing on his/her life that this time was the absolute truth. This goes beyond just lying for the sake of lying; some people actually can not help themselves, it's like a disease.

This is the same for other bad deeds: can cheaters be forgiven if they only did it because theyre insecure? can murderers be forgiven for insanity? etc etc.

food for thought...
