General Lucifer wrote:I Came Not To Send Peace"
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household." (Matthew 10:34-37)
These words of Jesus confirm the unbelievable notion that Jesus did not come to establish peace, but rather to send the sword and to put man against his family.Is he really a "Prince of Peace"? So much for family values.
(See also Luke 12: 51-53, Luke 12:49 and Luke 14:26.)
I Come To Send Fire
"I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?" (Luke 12:49)
"Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law." (Luke 12:51-53)
From his own words the son of Yahweh brought confusion and division among families.Is that the only way he can preach his good new? It seems Yahweh and his son are not creative enough to find a better way to get their message to the people. Confusion and division are qualities of the 'Devil, not of a true supreme being.
(See also Luke 14:26)
why is it hard to see? Didn't Jesus bring divisions to the world, hasn't he done that? Hasn't his words contradicted this whole thread?
Why was he killed? Because he uttered blasphemous words that went against the status quo, that went against Yahweh, the blood thirsty god of the OT. Didn't he say turn the other cheek (forgiveness), instead of eye for eye tooth for tooth, one of Yahweh's national pledges? Didn't he say love your enemies whiles Yahweh would have instructed to hydrogen bomb your enemies?
General paa, come on, you know this. Look at homosexuality and the church or Christianity, Xtaians are debating amongst themselves vigorously. Families are torn apart because Jesus had told them to love one another but it is hard for them to do that. Divisions. No, that is not peace, acceptance and tolerance are out of the window. Jesus has brought a different way of looking at life, therefore, no peace, people are seeing the evil side of themselves and can't accept it.
