This is a special path to the Son of God – not for us sinners

It is widely believed that Christ’s nonviolence is not a guide for everyone, but a special path for the Son of God, that such nonviolence is not for us and that we cannot do it. He is Christ and we are sinners. Do not venture down His path.

Well, then, the other lessons that He taught are not for us:

  • How He did not lie is not for us. Only the Son of God cannot lie.
  • How He loved others is not for us. Only the Son of God can love.
  • How He tolerated our vices and weaknesses is not for us. Only the Son of God can be patient.

But even if we are weak, what would prevent us from learning?
