and did not Christianity bring the sword?
i don't mean the sword of truth
i mean the sword of war, ravage and killing.
in the name of GOD the crusades took place
we also committed the worse genocide in human history supposedly in the name of christianizing the "heathen" peoples native to this continent.
now, i'm not knocking Jesus.
he's my best friend.
but he isn't always properly understood as to what his role is and was.
there's a lot more to it that the standard cut and dried he-came-and-died christian theology.

I am still curious to know though what your perspective is concerning those verses in Matthew and Luke.What do you think they mean?What is Jesus referring to?
If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
