*diamerismos (Greek) noun:  “division, dissension” (Luke 12:51).  Matthew (see Matthew 10:34) translates these words of Jesus as, “machaira,” or “sword,” which indicates “dissension.

**schisma  (Greek) noun:  “division, tear, dissension, schism” (John 7:43; 9:16;10:19).

“Do not think that I (Jesus) came to bring peace on the earth;
I did not come to bring peace, but a sword…
Do you suppose that I (Jesus) came to grant peace on earth?
I tell you, no, but rather division*…division**…division**…division**.”

Matthew 10:34; Luke 12:51; John 7:40-44; 9:16; 10:19-21 bold mine
(see Where Is This Jesus 1)
That Jesus came to bring division upon the earth is among the clearest teachings in the Bible.  “He who is not with Me, is against Me” (Luke 11:23).  The big question is “Why?”

Why did Jesus come to bring division on the earth?  Because of His commitment and desire that we be made free!

“It was for feedom that Christ set us free.”
Galatians 5:1; see also, Isaiah 61:1
And what does “freedom” have to do with “division?” 
The source of all freedom is truth and Jesus IS the Truth.
To reject Jesus is to reject the freedom that He offers.
Thus, the world of bongage in which we live.
see John 8:32, 36; 14:6
By definition, truth is a divider.  It divides that which is true from that which is not true.  Thus, true representatives of Jesus will encounter the same kind of responses by the world that He, Himself endured.

NOTE:  Sincere pastors and church leaders in the United States are KILLING BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY by exchanging the truth of the Bible for a “unity and peace” with the very same world that crucified Jesus in the first place.
