In the Bible Jesus says that when struck to turn the other cheek. Does it say anything about what to do if someone strikes another person? Are you supposed to strike back on their behalf or does that go against Jesusí teachings?
Youíre supposed to forgive those who trespass against you, but can you forgive those who do wrong to others? Do you have the right to forgive them?
What got me thinking about this is when someone gets angry online because their views on say gay marriage arenít tolerated, they usually call those who are upset intolerant. But to me when you vote against people having equal rights you are harming those around me. I donít feel I have the right to forgive or tolerate someone hurting another person or group. Just curious what the Bible or any other religionís stand on this was. Is there an obligation to defend your brother or since they should be forgiving those that are wronging them anyway, should you just mind your own beeswax?
Not sure if there are any references to beeswax in the Bible but aside from thatÖ
