Christ: “I have come to bring dissension”

ChristA few days ago I posted The Good America We Once Knew is On Life Support. Reflecting further, I should like to make two points:

1. It becomes ever-more clear that the culprits are the cowards in the “Republican Party” who never seem to want to stand up to modern evils like abortion and “gay marriage”, but always start out compromising with evil, as the House just did with its post-20 week abortion ban–which was typical Republican posturing, whose only purpose was to appease Paleo-Republicans and Burkean conservatives.

2. Similarly we have cowards in the Church–nominal Catholics who are ready, even eager to discard Church Doctrine to gain popularity with the secularists and modernists.

For those who come from the School of Chronicles and other remnants, I’m not saying anything at all profound. But in mulling things over, let us remember the profound words of Christ in Luke 12:

“49 It is fire that I have come to spread over the earth, and what better wish can I have than that it should be kindled? 50 There is a baptism I must needs be baptized with, and how impatient am I for its accomplishment! 51 Do you think that I have come to bring peace on the earth? No, believe me, I have come to bring dissension. 52 Henceforward five in the same house will be found at variance, three against two and two against three; 53 the father will be at variance with his son, and the son with his father, the mother against her daughter, and the daughter against her mother, the mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.[5]” (Mgsr. Knox Bible)
