the bible says turn the other cheek but what do you do if that one is harmed also?

How's that for fighting back? He even scolded Peter for Peter's cutting off of the centurion's ear while trying to protect jesus. So much for your "godly" argument. Your position is to boost your ego and justify to natural reaction to defend yourself--even though jesus specifically decried such a stance while he was being beaten to death. That's pretty much to whole concept of martyrdom summed up for 'ya. I can repeat it slower if you need me to do so... [/quote] You think your clever. However, Peter walked with Jesus daily with a sword on his hip. The portions of the bible to which you refer are regarding the sacrifice of Jesus himself; which had been foretold occur exactly as they did...Peter with his violent actions stood in the way of those prophetic scriptures, Jesus stopped him in order to allow the prophecy to be fulfilled. After walking with Jesus daily and following Jesus...do you really think Peter would have pulled the sword if defending yourself was against the scriptures? You dipshits that think you understand scripture without ever studying it seem like idiots every time you comment on the subject. [/quote] I have studied scripture, and your assesment of me that I am a "dipshit" really does wonders for solidifying your standing as a godly brother whose counsel is both wise and edifying. You fail and so do all phony christians who think they can rationalize the teachings of jesus according to their egotist sensibilities and their worldly philosophies. Until you lay down your life, you're not worthy of His. You can't do that in a faithless act of self-defense. If you act in self-defense, that's fine with me--I would too, and I would applaud anyone who did so. However, don't try to square such actions with christian doctrine, because it can't be done without compromising the words of jesus--that's how we KNOW that the teachings and philosophy of jesus are, by and large, symbolic of perfection while remaining out of reach to the fallen masses. [/quote] I disagree that anything I said is against anything Jesus taught (barring of course my dipshit comment). You are assuming that we must live a life as Jesus lived in order to be part of the "body". That's complete and utter nonsense. The warrior mentality existed in Jesus by means of Joshua from the old testament. Read and learn. Jesus is "the living word". [/quote]
Is there a specific passage that addresses that? I've been looking for one.
