Matthew 5:39 (KJV)
" But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also."
This scripture tells those of the Christian faith to be passive and "turn the other cheek" when someone wrongs them.
For Christians: Do you follow this scripture? Are you truly a passive person, or are you more aggressive?
For non-Christians: Do you have any belief similar to this? Do you believe in being passive and turning the other cheek for Karma's sake, or do you find yourself wanting vengeance?
