No one who has heard the clear call of Jesus’ Spirit can resort to violence for protection. Jesus abandoned every privilege and every defense. (1 Peter 2:21-23) He took the lowliest path. And that is His challenge to us: to follow him on the same way that he went, never departing from it either to the left or to the right. Do you think you can go a different way from Jesus on such decisive points as property and violence and yet claim to be His disciple?
