HiEv: Taken out of context, "...I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.. " sounds rather non-peaceful, but read the whole chapter and you`ll find it`s Jesus` instructions to his disciples. In those instructions he tells them that families will turn on one another and a man`s enemies will become his friends over their belief in Christ.

Furthermore, Jesus instructed them not to take any money or even a staff with them. Nothing to protect themselves at all. That`s not calling for war, that`s calling for peace.

Rodin: "Jesus did preach non-violence."

Yup, Jesus preached non-violence... except for when he preached for violence.

"I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is completed! Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division." - Jesus in Luke 12:49-51

"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword." - Jesus in Matthew 10:34

And if Jesus is God, then you also have to explain the whole Old Testament, where God repeatedly commanded people to kill other people in the name of religion.

@papajon0s1: anyone has a right to defend themselves against anyone trying to kill them. Religion is irrelevant to that, isn`t it?

@papajon -- if you`re a devout Catholic, wouldn`t you find a nonviolent solution to defend your family? Jesus did preach non-violence.

Agreed in principle; but if I, a devout Catholic, am faced down by a radical Islamist bent on my death do I not have the right to defend myself or my family?
