Is Christianity A Suicide Pact?

 No, it's not. An interesting post from The Orthosphere:

 Christianity is not a suicide pact unless we make it a suicide pact, in which case it is a suicide pact and we all die.  We make Christianity a suicide pact when we imagine that a Christian has overcome the world and its tribulations, whereas the truth is that Christ overcame the world and we Christians remains in it...

A Christian should turn the other cheek, but he does not have an infinite store of honor to lose and can survive only so much insult and slander.  He must not be “hasty in his spirit to be angry,” but neither should he be without a spirit to be angry.  A Christian should show forbearance and longsuffering but not servility.
