Bible verse of the day #30


Looks like Jesus wants you to die. Matthew 5:39

“But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.”

Passivity might be better than violence, but self-defense was invented for a reason. I don’t think anyone in history has done what Jesus said to do; if you get punched in the face, it’s not a good idea to invite your opponent to do it again!
