July 23 Luke 22 Turn the other cheek or buy a sword?
That could almost seem contradictory but it's not. It depends on the attitude and severity of the offense. Something minor, a verbal insult or a simple slap may be painful but the results are not severe or fatal. It may be best to simply let it go. Especially the verbal name calling, currently our political leaders behave like grade school children with this foolishness, and it's pretty much all of them. This attitude pervades the country. Unless we stop being offended by stupidity it will get worse. On the other hand we should be able to protect ourselves against a violent attack. One must accept that we live in a world that is broken and the base attitude of man is evil and self centered.
