Matthew 5:38-4238 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’[h] 39 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. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41 If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
Seems to me he does want us to help our enemies, he wants us to give to them, care for them, heal them, pray for them just as if they were our own.
Jesus was teaching forgiveness that has to do with the way people treat you as a Christian and we should live by that but he also taught us to obey the laws of the land also.That is in noway teaching us to help evil-doers to do evil.Also there are limits to our forgiveness also and until the person repents we are not to just forgive them such like a wife/husband being abused. We are to get away from them unless/until they repent and then we forgive. We also pick and choose our wives,husbands,friends,etc based on their actions using righteous judgment.
Please explain how praying for someone's health is helping them do evil.
Really? If they are doing evil and are healed they can further do evil.
