Turn the Cheek?

Published May 19th, 2014 by Dirk Waren

Jesus said, “If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.” What does “turning the cheek” mean? Does Jesus want us to be “doormats” for abuse? Are we obligated to perpetually “turn the cheek” to arrogant antagonists who repeatedly spit on our peaceable grace and the Spirit’s wooing? Doesn’t Jesus care about justice? This teaching is a BALANCED Biblical look at the subject. As Jesus said, “the truth will set you free.”
