The philosophy

also fits with many other creeds and laws. These are not true because they are written in a book 4,000+ years ago, they are true because they are logical. You cannot make a logical case that it is okay for you to murder your neighbor, unless there is an imminent threat. If there was no imminent threat there is NO reason to kill a person. It is theft of life.

Forgiveness is another thing. In my opinion, the only person you really have to receive forgiveness from is yourself. In any situation this seems to be true. If you steal, kill, destroy property, or lie you must be able to forgive yourself in order to learn and move on. All other forgiveness is secondary.
