The Power of Forgiveness: If We Still Did “An Eye for an Eye,” the World Would Be Blind – In our journey of faith, we encounter powerful teachings that challenge our worldview and call us to a higher standard. One such teaching is the concept of “an eye for an eye,” often associated with justice and retribution. However, as Christians, we are called to embrace a radical idea that transcends this ancient principle. In this blog post, we will explore the profound message behind the words of Jesus and understand why if we still followed the principle of “an eye for an eye,” the world would indeed be blind. #bgbg2
He (Jesus) knew that the old eye-for-eye philosophy would leave everyone blind. He did not seek to overcome evil with evil. He overcame evil with good. Although crucified by hate, He responded with aggressive love. Martin Luther King, Jr.
