  • “OK, so maybe when I turn the other cheek, I am demonstrating redemptive forgiveness. Is there ever a time when I should strike back?” — Katie

    A couple weeks ago, we discussed the reasons for why one would “turn the other cheek.” We acknowledged that the ethic of the New Testament is radical: forgiveness toward — even love for — enemies, is what is prescribed (Mt. 5:43-48). “Be at peace with all men, if at all possible” (Rom. 12:18; 14:19). This is the ideal.
    In the ancient scripture however, we can see the reality of the situation.
    The world is a broken, harsh place and bad stuff happens. This situation often demands a response.
