Come on now... seriously.

What if all Christians actually did this:

You have heard that it was said, "an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth." But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you. --Matthew 5:38-42

In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the law and the prophets. --Matthew 7:12

What then?

Aren't these supposed to be commands and not mere suggestions to give lip service to? Otherwise, do we not also betray Him with a kiss, as Judas did?
