A Short Study of Matthew 10:34

Peace without truth is a false peace!

Unity without the gospel of Christ is a worthless unity.

Let us never be ensnared by those who advocate a peace and unity without Christ’s righteousness and atoning blood.

There was no one who loved peace and unity more than the Apostle Paul; yet when he saw the Apostle Peter act contrary to REDEMPTION BY GRACE (Galatians 2:11), Paul withstood him to his face and publicly rebuked him.

We dare not sacrifice our peace with God, in Christ, for the sake of a peaceful co-existence with this religious world.

We dare not lose that blessed “fellowship with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ” (1 John 1:3) in order to live without controversy among men.

Let us remember the words of our Master, “Do not think that I come to bring peace ON EARTH; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword” (Matthew 10:34).
