Nobody can simply vindicate and consent that suffering is a reasonable condition for those who are harmed, coerced or oppressed; tolerance for violence against anyone is not a christian perspective. It is rather a revolutionary and radical choice to hold fire when under attack because Jesus demonstrated this.
Abuse does not produce more mistreatment and suffering, as well as to hurt somebody is not a Christian’s response to being indignant.
It is rather love, compassion, mercy and forgiveness trusting God’s mercy and uprightness instead of seeking revenge which we consider our Christian’s high calling.
We could easily retaliate back in response to vengeance,
yet one’s honest response would be, “would Jesus do that?”
