[SOLVED] Sermon on the Mount

Please read the instructions and questions below carefully and write your thoughts, and no need to cite from different cites.  The “Sermon on the Mount” is considered by many to be at the heart of Jesus’ teachings and one of the often-quoted sections from that Sermon is:  “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.” (Mathew, 5:38-42).  In Jesus and Nonviolence, the theologian Walter Wink offers an interpretation of this passage that suggests that Jesus may properly be read as preaching of nonviolence, grounded in love. Based on this interpretation and other relevant passages (such as say The Parable of the Samaritan) from the Gospels and the life of Jesus, do you agree with this interpretation? And, if you do, do you think that it is incumbent on those who claim to find inspiration in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ to be practitioners and advocates of nonviolence?
