Wussies in Christ?

"Many Christians have taken the stance of pacifism because of the above mentioned commandments. We are quick when it comes to turning the other cheek. We are slow at taking revenge and we are forgiving (for the most part). I do not contend that those are actions less admirable than the opposite. I do, however, think that we have taken all of it too far.

I can understand us making the decision to forgive or forget when someone does us wrong but should we also decide to forgive and forget if the wrong is done to our fellow human?"

This is not hard to answer.
Think of Hitler and his gang of thugs.
Think of Muhammad and his successors.
We do not follow static commandments.
We follow Jesus and do what we see Him doing.
The same man that came saying, "Turn the other cheek," also said, "do not think I have come to bring peace to the world, but a sword."
We know not a historical figure but a risen and present Lord, one who says, "I was dead, but I am alive."
Follow Jesus now, and let go of speculation.
Act, and it becomes fact.
Trust, or bust.
