Many people want to bypass these provocative words from Jesus because they seem to imply that we are to allow people to just beat the tar out of us and not resist physical violence and injury. Having a sense of what I think Jesus really meant by these words causes me to wonder at how easily we get deceived into believing that it means something that is impossible to obey. God does not give us commands that are impossible to obey. He certainly gives us ones that are difficult and that challenge us but never ones that are impossible.

This guy just doesn’t have a connection with reality. His solution to removing a sofa is to cut it up. The guy’s own wife can’t stand him… but that generation just doesn’t divorce. I feel so sorry for the wife. I can’t imagine living with such a miserable person.
