Turn the Other Cheek

Turning the other cheek is not passive acquiescence. It is standing one's ground. It is provocative but non-violent, signaling to the aggressor that I refuse to share the assumptions that are motivating you. I refuse to live in the same moral and spiritual world that you are living in. At the same time, you mirror back to the violent person, that they may see and be brought to change.
