        I look at it this way, since I have only two cheeks, I will turn the other cheek, only once.

        Then I'm sorry I tried to do the right thing, but if you insist on hurting me, doing me wrong I will retaliate.

          I'm inclined to agree with this.
          Many people get mixed-up about the concept of turning the other cheek.

            Yes, that would make sense considering gods word used to command an eye for an eye. Funny how god flip flops on so very important matters of morals and ethics. smile

    We have to think in the way of FAITH.
    If you are permitted for one slap nobody can slap second time.

      Are you talking about the old Roman custom of soldiers or others in authority slapping someone back-handed, and then the victim having the choice to either do nothing or else to turn the other cheek, daring the attacker to strike them again (thereby shaming the attacker) ?

    My interpretation or (mis-)is that, one should not stop at helping because he was one abused for helping. I think it is used to preach "forgiveness." I do not think it should be used to promote, "passivity."
