Did Jesus Come to Bring Peace?
Christians are always saying how Jesus came to bring peace on earth and all that good cupcake stuff. No big surprise here but with multiple different authors over hundreds of years of edits, re-writes, and new writings about Jesus we have contradictions on these basic theology questions.
On the one hand, Jesus is heralded as bringing peace on earth. But in another gospel, we have him bringing the sword and telling you that he came turn brother against sister and cats against dogs. It's hard to know what we should think about Jesus with these two contradictory statements. You can't both bring peace and war. Well maybe you can if you wage war till everyone agrees with you and there is no one else that will resist you. Then there will be peace.
Christ brought peace
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Christ did not bring peace
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
