Can’t We All Get Along?

No, at the end of the day, we cannot all get along if we stand on opposite sides of Jesus.

Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division.

Luke 12

While as much as it depends on us we need to try to get along with everyone (Rom 12:18) that is not going to be possible for those who deny Jesus. Science, politics, and just life in general… being a Christian affects every aspect. We should be the first people to have joy, give a smile, and love others, but we cannot compromise on what the Bible teaches us. We cannot shy away from teaching all that Jesus commands us, this will create division. Jesus did not come for “peace on earth and good will towards all men.” He gives us peace with Him, but that will create the opposite to those opposed to God.

So, don’t be discouraged when people treat you poorly for your position on matters the Bible speaks to clearly. Count it all joy!
