Resist the Devil
The reason that we're not to resist an evil person (Matthew 5:39), I'm discovering, is that we're to resist the devil (James 4:7). Resisting a person would be like chopping the top off a weed--it will only come back. But if we pull up the root of the matter--the devil, we'll have lasting success. People are redeemable; the devil isn't.
