Standing up for yourself?
Please read “I am Anthony” before reading this.
Question: At what point does the responsibility to stand up for yourself get transferred to those around you?
and does this post have anything at all to do with Jesus’ words regarding turning the other cheek?
Answer: I think it is always an individual’s responsibility to stand up for those who are being being bullied.
I do think this has something to do with Jesus’s words, “Turn the other cheek.” I’m not sure what Jesus would say about the idea of “standing up for yourself.” The New Testament definitely teaches the idea of not returning evil for evil.
Can anyone think of any Scripture regarding the idea of standing up for yourself? Perhaps an example of someone who did and did it right? I’d like to hear some thoughts on this matter. I’ll be fairly busy this week, so I think we should get a robust discussion going on this one.
