Now for almost 2000 years Christians have been ‘lawyering’ the Bible to try and figure out how ‘Love Thy Neighbor’ can mean ‘Hate Thy Neighbor’ and how ‘Turn the Other Cheek’ can mean ‘Screw You! I’m Buying Space Lasers.’
It is a sad state of affairs when a self-confessed onlooker can do better biblical exegesis than the followers of Christ.
Jesus lays on that hippy stuff pretty thick. He has lines like ‘do not repay evil with evil’ and ‘do not take revenge on someone who wrongs you’.
