God’s Version of Peace and Unity

  • “Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division;” (Luke 12:51)

  • “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.” (John 14:27)

Jesus Christ, the "Prince of Peace" and great preacher of peace, did not come to unite the world in peace and unity. The peace that Jesus Christ promised was peace with God.1 Because most of the world's population has always opposed God,2 accepting peace with God results in division and conflict with the world.3
