  1. Some things are not worth arguing over and one should be able to make that judgment. Somethings should be ignored and turned the cheek on and other things need to be addressed. Ignoring everything isn’t really a solution as you’re letting that person walk away with a false outlook, as humans it is our duty to educate one and other and turning the cheek doesn’t always allow it. So be sensible and use your own judgement

  2. I believe that in some people, not just Christians, it is practiced.
    However, regardless of whether it is due to the faith or one’s personality to do so, sometimes there are certain incidents that we can turn the other cheek to. Which in these days is called, to simply ignore something.
    I personally think we should be able to have the ability to turn the cheek but at the same time, have the understanding of when this principle isn’t appropriate.
    Standing up for what one believes in, in a peaceful way can and then going about their business can also be regarded as turning the other cheek. This is because, as long as we deal with an issue in a way that would allow us to get our point across peacefully, it shows that we didn’t stoop down to the same level of the person who caused the issue to arise in the first place.
