Retaliation is a natural instinct.  As a child, if someone pushed you, your natural response would be to push back – Maybe even a little harder.  As we grow older, it is a natural instinct to respond in kind when someone does something or says something with which you don’t agree.  But Jesus didn’t try to retaliate.  Instead He showed that loving your fellowman is the right way to live.   Listen as Pastor Kroemer talks to us about “Salvation, Not Retaliation.”
