What ‘turn the other cheek’ means (and doesn’t) in an age of terrorism

Working, Striving towards a more Peaceful World "I WRITE, I SHARE, I DREAM!"

The horrific attacks in Brussels, claimed by ISIS, have left us once again shocked. Jesus has something powerful to say to the problem, but his words need to be carefully understood before being applied.

My Thoughts (written some years ago)

IS WAR EVER JUSTIABLE?

When Jesus spoke about “loving one’s enemies”, he wasn’t speaking about war situations, as Christianity maintains that war is justified in certain situations (and as an absolutely final resort after all other options (to preserve peace) have been exhausted) – to remove evil tyrants and dictators, who are killing scores of innocent civilians (as an Adolf Hitler did). Muhammar Gaddafi? But then what about a situation like Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe???

And this enemy is NOT the religion of Islam, 

but the distorted ideology of hate represented by Isis (Isil).
