Pacifists vs. Pragmatists
Pacifists — literally
Pragmatists — conditionally
Eye for an Eye
The purpose of the Law was not to limit our love for God and people but to limit our sinful inclinations.
Do not resist an evil person.
Do not ever get even.
1 Thessalonians 5:15
Channel your anger towards restraint.
Turn the other cheek.
Do not ever get even.
1 Thessalonians 5:15
“Vengeance is a lazy form of grief.”
Deny your right and surprise them.
Courageously and creatively respond to evil.
Hand over your coat as well.
Not about going naked.
Be ruled by generosity.
Go with them two miles.
Double what is asked
It might create a God-moment
Do not turn away.
Be smart about this.
Be ready.
Live uncommonly.
