It seems you have run away o.
I thought you were using the Bible to defend your point.

More questions came and you revert to me asking for your personal opinion. Infact who are you that I should ask for your opinion. I am ni stead asking for your opinion as a Christian, so I was expecting you back it up with some biblical references. Don’t fail now when you’re needed. It could help me
I was using the bible to "defend myself"? Lol....

Like I have said severally on this, topic is on what sin is. If you choose to live in sin,you don't do so against me but instead against God. I shouldn't even be your concern even though you keep pretending that I should somehow be . undecided

Ask yourself first, if fighting back aligns with the scripture or have you seen anywhere Jesus slap someone back in the scripture?

You quoted this word. From where exactly, Haba don’t resort to this na. Did I ever write anyone like “myself”? Haba

And again you silently dodged all my questions, smart move but not so smart.

Jesus said Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's".

If a soldier forces you to walk with him one mile, go with him two.

That soldier is an agent of Caesar and that soldier and agent of Caesar ask for something ( e.g self defense)


What did Jesus say.......


42. Give to anyone who asks you for something(e.g self defense). Don’t refuse to give to anyone who wants to borrow(e.g self defense)from you.

I have shown kobojunkiee from the same verse he has been quoting and citing all this while that he needs to be perfect just like the heavenly father. Kobojunkiee knows the heavenly father will self-defense the apple of his eyes.

That's why I told him the thin LINE BETWEEN PACIFISM and SELF DEFENSE and the GREY AREAS.

When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16 To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!” 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.”[c](U)


I am wondering why Jesus didn't use the SIT DOWN LOOK APPROACH HERE and fold his arms when they turned his father's house into market?

Is Jesus self defending his father's house?
