Disarming an enemy

From the December 12, 2016 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Is kindness an evasive response to animosity? Is love a weak reply to hatred? Are self-abnegation and courage fruitless when one is under threat?  It’s pretty safe to say that Christ Jesus didn’t think so. He taught that kindness, love, setting aside one’s own interests in the interest of others, and courage are powerful and natural ways for us to respond to evil.
