Today, reply is on the widespread error among those outside the body of Christ in describing authentic Christian behavior as “weakness”. As sinners and those joined through secular knowledge, the world, and the flesh, men are unable to correctly discern the aspects of exalted majesty and power that appear within all sacred process and the spirit substance from GOD. While forbearance, mercy, and righteousness are continually displayed, they remain unseen because they are spirit and apprehended through faith. Born-again Christian believers must undergo many years meeting life challenges on the earth to arrive at full sacred development and edification. More than this, believers are fully transformed and perfected only following final judgment, and becoming joined to Christ as immortal. It is written: 1st Corinthians 15: 50-58, King James Version (KJV): 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Why does Christianity say that you have to let others treat like a doormat?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the LORD your God; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law. Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our LORD: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength. So the Levites stilled all the people, saying, Hold your peace, for the day is holy; neither be ye grieved. (Nehemiah 8: 9-11, KJV)

shoeshopper3”, authentic and mature Christian believers practice “turning the other cheek” as a prophetic and spiritual work that makes present and visible the life essence (breath; spirit; utterance; word) from divinity (i.e., the divine fullness; the Godhead; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) that was imparted to mankind in Creation, is bestowed as rebirth that comes by fire and water baptisms, and can be recognized as the shared “resurrection life” of Jesus Christ. The follower of Christ is to provide more than just a social display of friendliness, nonviolence, patience, or tolerance. The integrity of mankind as an expression of divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD is to be demonstrated and proclaimed. Those who are born again, and who exist as vessels containing inseparable aspects of spirit substance from the makeup of GOD, are to resemble, reflect, and reveal the character and likeness of Jesus Christ. Included are faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. The sovereign will of Jesus Christ is to exist and have rule within the consciousness and self-will (willpower) of the believer. Thereby, forbearance, forgiveness, and mercy to those who are found guilty in divine judgment may appear. Born-again believers must “grow up again” while living on the earth to become mature/ripe for harvest by the Lord at his appearing (Advent; the Rapture; the Second Coming). There must be discovery, gradual growth, sacred practice (e.g., fasting, praise, prayer, worship), study of the holy writings, unselfish service, and the endurance of suffering. Only in maturity are accountability, balance, commitment, consistency, sobriety, stability (the immutability of GOD), and unselfishness regular fixtures within a believer’s lifestyle and daily routine. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of William Murphy:

(1.) Ephesians 4: 17-32, King James Version (KJV): 17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20 But ye have not so learned Christ; 21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. 25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27 Neither give place to the devil. 28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. 29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. 30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

(2.) 2nd Corinthians 13: 4-9, KJV: 4 For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you. 5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? 6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates. 7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates. 8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. 9 For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (3.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywl595L6m9Y.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
