Conquering Without Being Violent
by Rockeybell Adatura
Some people use force to make others accept their views. They attack, insult, and make the lives of people who disagree with them miserable. They do not know how to persuade people to accept their views. The Christian method is to speak to the conscience of the listener, and convince the listener without using violence. The Christian conquers without attacking, turning enemies into friends.
