Bringer of peace?
I FIND Gareth Jones (Monday) hilarious in his assumptions regarding peace and his beliefs in Jesus.
If he was truly paying attention to his beloved book, he would find that Jesus does not bring peace, but "rather a sword if you love your father, mother, sister, brother, more than me" (Matthew 10:34).
Then there's the comical part about him criticising parents for not killing their disobedient children (Mark 7-9), giving the thumbs-up to keeping slaves (Ephesians 6:5), giving the thumbs-up to beating slaves (Luke 12:47) and condemning entire cities to death just because they weren't fans of his (Matthew 11:20-30).
That is not an offer of peace, but an offer of subservience, forced idolisation and fear.
Now, these are New Testament Four Gospel lines, so I could have plenty of fun with the rest of the book, particularly Revelations and Genesis.
As Mark Twain put it, "The best cure for Christianity is reading the bible".
