Impaired memory testifies to sin’s effects in this world. As Alistair Begg demonstrates, however, in Isaiah 43 we see the God of perfect memory choose to willingly forget. The Israelites made their faith formulaic and self-serving, but God showed mercy by choosing not to remember these transgressions. Such forgiveness looks ahead to Christ on the cross, who received the deserved retribution for our sin.
