Want to know who really causes division? Jesus Christ. He said so:
“51Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. 52From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. 53They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.” – Luke 12
Question is: WHY. The answer is simple: Most people are living a LIE. If they ever had a relationship with Jesus, they’ve wandered away. Many others never knew him.
On the one hand, you have the few who are following the path. Not all of them are church-goers, but they’re all in fellowship with God. On the other hand, you have the many who have wandered from the path, and that includes a great many church-goers.
Divided? You bet. Those who call themselves Christians but support abortion, perversion and other forms of evil will one day experience a spiritual face plant:
“21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” – Matthew 7
Did Obama divide? Certainly. He supported evil, the same as Biden, Pelosi, Schumer and others are doing today.
Did Trump divide? Certainly. He supported doing the morally and Constitutionally correct thing, the same as Reagan and other great U.S. Presidents.
Division in the U.S. is spiritual, but there’s one party that leans heavily towards evil, all while the best of them are fooling themselves into thinking they’re doing the evil they do “for the good of the people.” The worst of them know the truth, and they’re just trying to live as high on the hog as they can before facing eternal damnation.
Does that mean we should all just link arms and sing kum-bay-ya?
Heaven forbid! Whatever you do, REMAIN HOLY!!!
Do not associate with a man given to anger;
Or go with a hot-tempered man,
Do not eat the bread of a selfish man,
Or desire his delicacies;
Do not be envious of evil men,
Nor desire to be with them;
1 Corinthians 5:9
I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people;
My son, do not walk in the way with them.
Keep your feet from their path,
Do not enter the path of the wicked
And do not proceed in the way of evil men.
2 Corinthians 6:14
Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?
You shall not follow the masses in doing evil, nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after a multitude in order to pervert justice;
They shall not live in your land, because they will make you sin against Me; for if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.”
Watch yourself that you make no covenant with the inhabitants of the land into which you are going, or it will become a snare in your midst.
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
1 Corinthians 5:11
But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler—not even to eat with such a one.
