I am here, Jesus.
Let me add to my channeling of March 27, 2007 regarding turning the other cheek.
You, and the vast majority of the rest of the world, have felt that the notion of responding to aggression by just allowing oneself to be continuously abused, is crazy, and cannot accomplish any good purpose.
You are, of course, correct. My teaching, explained in that earlier channeling, got completely garbled by the early church. When they interpolated the whole way of thinking regarding salvation by the cross, they had to add to the manuscripts of the early Bible certain backup verses supporting this totally false viewpoint. This is how they distorted “turning the other cheek.”
What Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. stood for is the true meaning of my teaching. And, as history shows, this method works.
As the greatest creations of God, we absolutely must stand up for our own rights.
