Quote from Dave McKay

We're not Jesus? Are you really so sure? The Bible says that we are "his body" here in this world, and so we have the responsibility to follow his example, even though we know that the foolishness of the cross is going to enrage all those who operate in their own fleshly understanding.
Quote from Kevin
Liz just recalled an incident at Vision 2000 (community project in India) where Boopalan (Indian disciple) was assaulted by a bully. She said she was shocked when Dave advised him to fight back. Liz objected saying: "No, Jesus taught us to turn the other cheek, not to become the same as the bully".
This reminded me of an incident when I was thirteen when Dave advised me to confront a school bully and taught me that one punch to the nose would end it all. We ended up in a full on brawl in which I lost the will to hit the other kid in the face anymore. Dave ended up intervening, punching the kid in the stomach, and we hurriedly moved house to evade legal action from his parents.
Dave McKay, adult, father, preacher, ' religious leader' punched a child in the stomach and ran away.
