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.
