As several of us have wrestled with what it means to live as a non-violent/pacifistic Christian it became most evident to me that even we as Christians really find this Jesus character a bit disturbing. Did he really mean that we should turn the other cheek all the time? Did he really say lust is infidelity and hate is murder? Who can live up to this?!

I am wondering what saying attributed to Jesus is the one you find most difficult to accept. While I am thinking in lines of the canonical gospels I realize that there are other (in my opinion later) works that attribute saying to Jesus as well. Likewise, there is often a thin line between the words of Jesus and the interpretation and quotation of those words by the evangelist. So I will let you throw out any saying you think is authentic from any of those early sources. Let me know what Jesus saying is the hardest for you to accept.
