Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division.
We are not supposed to simply GET ALONG with everyone. COMPROMISE is not the way of the LORD. We are to live, witness and teach THE TRUTH; Not a WATERED DOWN version that makes people comfortable. That Is Not Love. GETTING ALONG/COMPROMISE/ WATERED DOWN TRUTH are the pathway to Hell. If you love someone, care about them enough to TEACH THE TRUTH. We must be more concerned about their eternal soul than about them liking us. If we LIVE THE TRUTH, we will have an eternity of them liking us. We understand not allowing a child to touch a hot stove. We understand that we should stop someone from stepping into oncoming traffic. Why do we not understand how to protect a soul? THE TRUTH is often uncomfortable and unpopular- SO IS HELL!
Jesus said to his disciples: "Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division."
St. Anthony Mary Claret, pray for us.
