Moderator Joshpantera Posted April 16, 2019 Moderator Share Posted April 16, 2019 I was recently talking about stupid sayings and so called "wisdom" teachings from the NT (which were nearly all not original to christianity and borrowed from previous sayings already in circulation at the times). We're discussing the stupidity of the "Golden Rule," on another thread. Turn the other cheek is probably the stupider yet in the grand scheme. I think ole Teddy had it figured out much better with, "walk softly, but carry a big stick." Peace is more likely to come from fear based on superior weapons, fighting skills, fire power or what-have-you. Not from making a door mat of one's self for all to come along, trample and exploit (whether nationally or personally). Just another one of those things that popped up in conversation about how dim witted jesus would have been if he actually existed, actually said the things ascribed to him, etc., etc. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
