    Matt. 10:34 - " ... not ... peace, but a sword." I, too, thought of a literal sword, but the Lord showed me Eph. 6:17 - " ..... the sword ..... which is the word of God." And Lk. 12:51 corroborates Matt. - " .... but rather division." The Bible does cause division - between families, friends and churches.

    He would have forgiven him, but like a lot of us we let the enemy put In our head that the Farther will not forgive. Which is a lie.

    Judas Iscariot; can you see how Jesus loved him? He KNEW he would betray Him (even before Judas was born) yet He gave him every chance to see the light. And - after Judas betrayed Him - he maybe did see the light, but either couldn't believe he could be forgiven or God let him go. I personally believe he could have repented. We need to be very careful what we do and say.
