Leo Tolstoy Quotes
- Five years ago I began
to believe in the doctrine of Christ, and in consequence a great change has been
wrought in me.
I saw that Christ does not require us to turn the other cheek, and to give away
our cloak, in order to make us suffer; but He teaches us not to resist evil, and
warns us that doing so may involve personal suffering.
- Do not resist evil means never
to resist evil, i.e., never offer violence to anyone. If a man reviles you, do
not revile him in return; suffer, but do no violence.
- The precept not to resist evil is
one that contains the whole substance of Christs doctrine, if we consider
it not only as a saying, but also as a law we are bound to obey.
- To affirm that the Christian doctrine refers only to
personal salvation and has no bearing upon state affairs is a great error.
