This is a brief video we made in hopes of causing people to question things for themselves. Many times people hear and agree with some wise statement, quote, or Bible verse, and repeat it. But they never question whether the truly understand the depths of the meaning.

For example, you may have heard the verse where Jesus said, “Resist not evil.”

“But I say unto you, That you resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.” (Matthew 5:39)

Have you ever wondered what that meant?

It simply means, “Don’t hate it.” Do not be angry, judge, or resent it. Anger, resentment, or judgment are what allow evil to rule over you.

To read more about how to overcome anger and evil, read The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame and Victimhood.
