The Real World.
I can hear you now, "That's all very well but it won't work in the real world."
That's your fear talking.
You are not prepared to give love a try because you know it won't work, you'll just get trampled on.
That is fear.
And what is trampling but fear.
Get the next guy before he gets you.
This is the way of the world.
And it is driven by fear.
What did Jesus say?
He said not to retaliate but to turn the other cheek.
But does anyone do it?
Not even Christians.
But Love is the ultimate reality.
The Kingdom of God is ruled by Love.
"There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear." 1 John 4:18a (NRSV)
