The words in the Bible are very important to the way we live our lives a s Christians. I think it is very crucial that we don't take the word of God for granted. It is important that we read and understand God's word because there are things in the Bible we would never gasp on our own.

Even some of the smartest minds may have trouble understanding what God is trying to tell us in the Bible. The section about enemies is one of the areas that can be tough to grasp. We are in a society where many people tend to live for themselves.

Having the ability to love and forgive our enemies is counter to our own sense of reasoning. God teaches us that if we see our enemies in trouble or in need, we help them no matter what.

Below are 5 Bible verses about the importance of loving your enemy:

Luke 6:27
- "But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you."

Exodus 23:5 - If you see the donkey of one who hates you lying down under its burden, you shall refrain from leaving him with it; you shall rescue it with him.

Acts 7: 60
- And falling to his knees he cried out with a loud voice, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

Ephesians 4:32
- Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Mark 11:25
- And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses."

Hallelujah! This was the reason Paul warned the brethren to beware of strange doctrine or a new teaching. Today, even in the elevated 'born again' churches, out pastors are now preaching fire for fire, head for an eye and portray the Lord only as a consuming fire without telling men of the Lord's mercy and forgiveness.

They end up rubbishing the dead and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

May God be merciful.

There are some moral teachings of the bible I share. But to "turn the right cheek"? That's humanly insane.

Christianity in Nigeria is alien to loving your enemies.

Please take this preaching elsewhere.
If we start preaching loving our enemies, don't you know pastors won't be rich again because alot won't find reasons to attend church?

We are a set of people who like to shift blames to others, we look for who to blame for our impotence and failures in life.

Even God didn't love lucifer (his no1 enemy). He casted him away and subjected him to eternal languishment. All these biblical rules sometimes contradicts.

Love your enemy my foot!!

The bible didn't say turn the other cheek, it says turn the other side. The other side could be anything - It could be a smile, it could be a dagger or the most baddas riffle. This is more of a personal preference.
