Matthew 5:38 You have heard that it
was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.'
39 But I say to you, Do not resist
one who is evil. But if any one strikes you on the right cheek, turn to
him the other also;
40 and if any one would sue you
and take your coat, let him have your cloak as well;
41 and if any one forces you to

John 18:36 Jesus answered, "My
kingship is not of this world; if my kingship were of this world, my servants

Love Your Enemies
43 "You have heard that it was said,
'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.'
44 But I say to you, Love your

Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the

46 For if you love those who love
you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
48 You, therefore, must be perfect,

Luke 23:34 And Jesus said, "Father,
forgive them; for they know not what they do."
Hate Your Family
Luke 14:26 "If any one comes to me
and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers
and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.
Matthew 12:47 Then one said unto him,
Behold, thy mother and thy brethren are standing without, seeking to speak
48 But he replied to the man who
told him, "Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?"
49 And stretching out his hand
toward his disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers!
50 For whoever does the will of
my Father in heaven is my brother, and sister, and mother."
