    All right, I’m gonna throw this one out there because I can. <img src=” title=”Razz” />

    So Jesus was supposedly praying for the unity of his followers in the garden of Gethsemane, right?

    But also, Jesus said he came to cause division.

    [quote:2fs941dr]In Matthew 10:34-36, Jesus said:

    “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.” [/quote:2fs941dr]

    Now, I know the contrast in the passage I cited was with peace, but don’t peace and unity go hand in hand?
