I want to hear your thoughts on Matthew 5:38-48
Seems like Christ was instructing his followers to not resist those that would harm you. To not fight back. To freely give that which someone would steal. Seems he taught absolute pacifism.
Seems like he felt you should love your enemy in order to be perfect like the father.
To take the "Grab a Sword" line as a call to defend one's self with weapons and violence seems to make Jesus a hypocrite.
