Christ taught, "Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also." (Matt 5: 37-38) It may be hard for us to be so kind, but when we live this way, we grow to love others. This principle is also taught in Buddhism to find true happiness. Gandhi once stated, "I like your Christ." (He also said a few more things with that which I will get to later.) Great ways to live have been taught by Christ from the beginning of the world (and before that). The scriptures are full of them. We, as Latter-day Saints, like to call these traits, "Christ-like attributes" others may call them "godly attributes."
"6 And it came to pass in the eighth year of the reign of the judges, that the people of the church began to wax proud, because of their exceeding riches, and their fine silks, and their fine-twined linen, and because of their many flocks and herds, and their gold and their silver, and all manner of precious things, which they had obtained by their industry; and in all these things were they lifted up in the pride of their eyes, for they began to wear very costly apparel.
