Blind man and the Law of Eye for an Eye

Post  Waqar Daniel on Mon 16 Jul 2007, 1:41 pm

Doesn't Bible encourage us to take law in our own hands and do wrong to others when Bible says "eye for an eye"? Moreover, if a blind man, injures an eye of a healthy person, how this allow would be applied?

First of all, this law was for Judges and not for a come man to decide. The Judges appointed were asked to be fair in their dealings. Eye for an eye rule basically tells a Judge to be fair in thier judgement.

Matthew 5:38 is so often misquoted by the world. Many believe it is giving a license to take matters into our own hands and render evil for evil. In reality, it is referring to civil law concerning restitution. If someone steals your ox, he is to restore the ox.


Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the LORD Jesus Christ. (Philemon 1:3)
