{17} Mourn with those who mourn.
{18} Live in harmony with one another.
{19} Do not be proud.
{20} Be willing to associate with people of low position.
{21} Do not be conceited.
{22} Do not repay anyone evil for evil.
{23} Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.
{24} If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
{25} Do not take revenge
{26} If your enemy is hungry, feed him.
{27} Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Proposition: The New Testament offers practical solutions for
human problems. Which ones above, if observed, would most likely
solve most of humanity's problems?

Look 'em over carefully.
Which ones would you pick? And why?

_________

Number {23} should raise an eyebrow.
My view is that Number {23} refers to the general moral code shared
by most of humanity, for example Do not murder. Do not steal. Do to
others what you would have them do to you. You cannot apply # 23
specifically to everybody because that would involve contradictions.
For example there are a tiny few-in-number of Christians that
actually believe it is a sin to celebrate Easter and Christmas because
they claim that both those Christian special days have their roots in
paganism. There are other Christians that believe it is a sin NOT to
celebrate Easter and Christmas.
So?
So its impossible to please everybody and we have to be aware of this
fact when we attempt to follow rule # 23
