  • Nonviolence In Early Christian Thought Through The Fourth Century

    Contributed by Daniel Keeran on Apr 3, 2019
    based on 1 rating

  • Do Not Resist Series

    Contributed by Simon Bartlett on Jun 25, 2022

    Many Christians believe that in Matthew 5:39 Jesus is calling us to pacifism. If that was the case, he would be negating the Old Testament! Jesus does call us to nonresistance, but in certain situations only - as his examples show. He isn't pacifist and he doesn't call us to to pacifism.

  • Living In The Kingdom 11 Series

    Contributed by Rodney Johnson on Jan 26, 2022

    In this message we examine what Jesus said about getting revenge; about doing "unto others AS they do unto us." This is a hard message for some Christians to hear because society tells us to defend ourselves at all cost. But what does Jesus say?

    Living in the Kingdom 11 Scripture: Matthew 5:38-42; Exodus 21:23-24; Romans 12:17 This morning we are going to talk about what it means to turn the other cheek – in other words, we will be talking about not getting revenge or doing unto others as they “do” unto you.

  • Experiments In Forgiving Series

    Contributed by Matthew Kratz on Sep 11, 2021

    In Matthew 5:38-42 we see Jesus presenting us God’s standard as an Experiment for us in Forgiving. Jesus outlines: 1) The Principle of Mosaic Law (Matthew 5:38), and gives four illustrations on: 2) The Perspective of Divine Truth (Matthew 5:39-42).

    Matthew 5:38-42 [38]"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.'[39] But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. [40] And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic, let more

    Contributed by Edward Cook on Jun 11, 2003
    based on 100 ratings

    True Christian meekness, as preached by our Lord as part of the Beatitudes, can only grow in the soil of poverty of spirit and godly sorrow.

    based on 2 ratings

    If you and I have Jesus in common, our faith and love and passion for Christ will naturally be for each other as well.
