Dear Michael and friends
My views are:
Perhaps. How so?
I am for one, not saying that Jesus taught that one should eagerly encourage the villain to count to a hundred. (smile.)
And those who promote Altruism - would neither, as far as I understand it.
But okay, you could have the thought that Jesus did, what you say. Yet, can the blind, lead the blind? (smile.)
Matthew 7:12 - should of course not be deviated form, because on that rest all the spiritual Law and the Prophets.
Here it is, one more time. Jesus is alledged to have said: "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." (Matthew 7:12). This is also known as the Golden Rule, and can be found several cultures around the whole globe. A very ancient doctrine. Even Confucius taught it in 551 bc or so.
But, the dogmatic church calling itself infallible keep deviating from it - does it not?
In general I do not follow what can be read in that which was falsely fabricated by the so-called Churchfathers in the year 325 i Nicea together with a muderous Emperor Constantin as the Leader of the meeting - and - later the so-called Bible was written by the dis-honest Skt. Jerome, who admitted that he avoided using the original secret Gospel by Matthew in a letter to two of his accomplishes.
But, are you promoting politics or are you not?

This seems to be different from the way that Jesus taught:
"Do not resist him who is evil, but whoever slaps you on one cheek,
turn to him the other, also."
