What does the bible say about violence?
It is human nature to get angry and if not controlled will turn to violence but we are told to avoid any type of violence by Jesus and that we should all live peacefully.
Jesus taught that forgiveness towards a fellow human being is essential if a person wants to be forgiven by God.
We should always be forgiving and forgive everyones sins to be treated equally. Also have no enemies or judge others as you are not perfect. God will judge you the same way as you have to others.
Concept of reconciliation
Reconciliation is about restoring relationships after a time of conflict. In the Sermon on the mount Jesus encourages us to sort out any arguments that we may have with others before church.
Jesus teaching on the new testament
We should forgive our brothers, ‘seventy times seven times’
‘Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you’
‘God will judge you in the same way as you judge others.’
