16186-luke-2-14-angels-800x400Are you aware that Jesus Christ said the following statements?

“Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth?  I tell you, not at all, but rather division.”

 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.

“I came to send fireon the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!”

One thing is clear, Jesus never sought to be popular or to be “politically correct!” He never merely said what people wanted to hear.  He always spoke only the truth from His heavenly Father.

Hebrews 12:11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

“We are not to look for the proper fruits of affliction while we are suffering, but ‘afterward.’  Albert Barnes”
