    We have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But the Lord  say unto us, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Why do we as a people always want to fight fire with fire?


Sister Carroll have a Blessed day

I suspect it is hard because in times past aggession was met with agression. If you didn't fight back you were killed. 

I find that prayer in these matters helps a lot.

Quoting xChasingxAmyx:

I wish that were true.  I believe many have 'an eye for an eye and then some' mentality. An eye for an eye originally meant if someone takes your eye, take only an eye from them, not an eye, an arm and a leg.  So, to do unto others, even in conflict means to do no more.
