Matthew 5:39 Teaches Us to Not Fight Back When Provoked

Sometimes people are just downright rude about Catholicism. If we listen to Matthew 5:39 we should ignore them, but it can be really difficult to do that sometimes. People always seem to want to give their opinion about why being a Catholic isn’t good. Recently It’s On My To Do List talked about this topic in a post titled, “So…you’re Catholic?”.

The article goes over recent conversations that the author has had. In many of them people seem very anxious to give their opinion about the Catholic Church. John 8:7 can remind us that none of us are perfect people. We all have our flaws, but it genuinely seems that people love to point out what they see wrong with the Church. The post does a good job of defending the faith, and I thought it was well done.
