We are to love our enemy, and that means being reconciled with them, and not wishing them evil.
But we can still be enemies with them, right? And one-up them and such?
We try, for our part, to not have enmity toward others. If they have enmity toward us, we pray for them and love them.
But if someone punches you in the gut and insults your wife's honor, if they come by the next day and ask to borrow your lawnmower you don't have to allow them, right?
That's when you say: "Brother, God is laying it on my heart to pray an akathist together before you borrow it"
Well, or something like that... you heard "kill em with kindness," so I guess this is more like "kill em with piety"

If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, challenge them to a fight. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, air their dirty laundry. If anyone forces you to go a mile, berate him continually. Give to those deemed worthy (if they pass a drug test), and turn not away from billionaires in need of tax breaks. This is [not] the Gospel.
