Lawless is about a family of moonshiners in Prohibition-era Virginia and the corrupt law enforcement people trying to catch them.
Near the end, a beloved character is brutally murdered. “What they did to that boy goes beyond forgiveness,” one character said. Another says “there will be no absolution.”
As mentioned in the Introduction, the Parables of Today are sometimes a teaching moment of behavior we should not emulate. God’s attitude is quite the opposite of those two characters. In 2 Peter 3:9, we’re told that God doesn’t want anyone to perish, but for everyone to repent.
We are told throughout the Bible about God’s loving forgiveness, including Ephesians 1:7.
