Notes for my writing

This blog is made up of notes on the gospel as found in the only true and living church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This includes notes that are either excerpts from or ideas for books I either have in draft or may yet write.

Truth and Division

Among the Saints the Lord wants there to be no contention as seen in 3 Nephi 11. He wants us to look past one another's petty faults.

However, between the saints and the world, Christ said he came to create division.

Luke 12: 51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
 52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.
 53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

Teaching the truth creates division. That does not mean we should not teach the truth.
