Wipe Your Feet Somewhere Else

I am a Christian, not a doormat.

Why is it that non believers think that Christians will just roll over and allow anything for the sake of peace?  Because we have for so long.

Yes, we are to turn the other cheek, yes we are to pray for those who persecute us, yes we are to love our enemy.  But where exactly in God’s Word does it say we are to allow evil to triumph while doing so?  Righteous anger is good!

Ephesians 6:10-18

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

  1. Great topic. I live how the non-believers use His Word in it suits them. Nothing in The Book says I can’t kick somebody’s ass to defend myself, family, or property. 🙂 I once told a guy, that after I was done kicking his rear, I would pray for his speedy recovery:)

    • heehee HB!

      There is a line… and one that is personal to each Christian. We are each called according to our abilities and we each have our own convictions on where we stand. The goal should be to prayerfully take each step in Christ, while fully wearing the armor of God! 😀
