Whole-Person Righteousness, Revenge, & Loving Your Enemies

Matthew 5:38-48

As a people pursuing whole person righteousness, we seek to forsake revenge and love our enemies.

“The Christian must treat his enemy as a brother, and requite his hostility with love. His behavior must be determined not by the way others treat him, but by the treatment he himself receives from Jesus; it has only one source, and that is the will of Jesus.” ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer
