Jesus isn't happy when families are divided. Did he know it was gonna happen? Yes, he's omni..something or other. He knew the Gospel message would give people a choice to accept him or to reject him. But as I explained on Dan's blog he expects us to stay married with one another(even if one is lost) in order to lead them to Christ. He expects us to be at peace with all men. And just an extra one I'll throw in for free, "be ye kind one to another, especially unto those of the household of the faith." The reason he wants us to treat"the household of the faith" so well is so those on the outside of the church will see how we love one another, and be "jealous" and want to join us. We might fail at that way too much, but blame Christians, not our Creator.
I will now make the claim that Christianity is actually the most inclusive and least bigoted group you can ever be a part of. Eph. 2:14 says that he has made both groups one. (by raising from the dead). Who are these 2 groups? They were the Jews and the Gentiles.(that's everybody) Now mix in a little Gal.3:28 that says "there is neither Jew nor Greek, their is neither slave or free man, neither male or female, for you are all one in Christ. Christianity isn't based on what we can offer God. Or how rich we are, or how handsome we are, (In my case that's just a coincidence). And Christianity sure in hell isn't reserved just for those who are "good". Let me tell you what John says he saw in the book of Revelation during the end times about what the "Christians" look like. "After these things I looked, a great multitude, which no one could count, from every nation, and all tribes and people and tounges standing before the throne and the lamb..."
Yes, Christians can be bad people, and do horrible things, be judgemental, and be "unforgiving" and hypocritical etc. But if I'm to be forced to draw a line in the sand, all I can say is that I'm gonna stand on the side that Jesus is standing on.
