Did Jesus bring peace or more problems to the world?

Updated on July 25, 2011

Did Jesus bring peace or more problems to the world?

I have always taught Christians and others the need to live in peace and it is obvious that peace can only be possible when we learn to respect our diverse religious views. Most at times, those that I defend condemn me because I am not one of them. That is they expect me to join them and condemn others while I choose to defend all. This is because I do not think that any man will follow a religious path that does not make meaning to him or work for him consequently, we all belief what we accept as the true religion and religious doctrine. That is why you are currently practicing your faith and you will remain in your faith until you see reasons to change from it so why do I should I condemn, persecute, kill, or hate you when I will not want you to do the same to me because of my religious belief, especially when you never stopped me from choosing and follow my own path?

I once told a protestant Christian friend that there is need for Christian unity and brotherhood so that when others see such unity it becomes easier to convert people. He said that division has been there from the beginning even when the apostles were still teaching so it is not possible to have peace even among Christians. I spoke to another person and he said that some Christians are false Christians. He is a Jehovah’s Witness member so I asked him, are you sure you are the real Christians if there are false Christians? Definitely, they think, just like all other Christian sects, that they are the real Christians. I told him that it is not his duty to decide the false Christians but he insisted that the truth is in the bible. Then I wondered, as I asked him, “Is it not the same bible other Christians used?” he said, “yes but they do not understand its true meaning.” That is the same old story I hear.

It is said that Jesus is the prince of peace and it is expected that Jesus through Christians should bring peace. Those that enjoy peace do so within themselves because there is no peace outside ourselves. That is peace is what we as individual can decide to attain not minding what happens around us or if others disagree with us. Maybe Jesus was right when he said in the gospel of Luke 12:51, “Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division.” So is Jesus actually the prince of peace? Did he bring peace or more divisions and problems among men like he said? If he brought division then it is normal that it should start in the church for he sowed it. If he brought peace then it means that the acclaimed Christians are those that choose to be divided but how can they be divided if there was no division and need for a division among them?

Maybe Christians should learn to first put their own house in order before they attend to others.
