My confusion stems from Jesus' statement where he exhorted christians to "Turn the other cheek". I know he was advising us to be meek, patient. e.t.c
But to what extent?
Should I allow myself to be cheated time and time again without protesting?
Am I allowed to protect myself from violators?
Should i not defend myself if attacked? and if I retaliate when attacked, am I still a Christian?
your thoughts on this please.
