A Christian Dilemma.

As a Christian I do believe in turning the other cheek.

Jesus said that if a man should strike you, you must turn the other cheek.


Jesus never said anything about turning the other cheek twice and so the
question which troubles me is: if I turn the other cheek once and see the
person is going to strike me again, can I whack him?

Am I allowed to pre-empt the second strike or should I wait until he has struck
me a second time and then knock him to the ground and give him a good kicking?

Itís a problem, I must admit.
