Punched Pastor and Forgiveness

A couple of weeks back Pastor Billy Joe Daugherty of Tulsa, Oklahoma, was punched while leading a prayer time near the end of his church service.

Watch the video below and you'll get the whole story. It is a great testimony of forgiveness in action, forgiveness 'under the microscope' if you will. Living in a peace bubble is another way to describe Billy Joe's attitude.

What would you have done if you were in Billy Joe's shoes?

Romans 12:21
Don't let evil get the best of you, but conquer evil by doing good.

Defend myself! Sure, I would forgive him, after he's on the ground unconscious. I don't believe on being a punching bag just because I'm Christian.

Thanks Mike for your response. A question for you is what does the 'dove love three times over' phrase you use in your email, (perfect love I presume), mean in a practical sense?
