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

Think about all the divisions you see no matter where you look. Some examples follow:

Creationism/Evolution; religious affiliation; political affiliation; sexual orientation; financial status; skin color/race; etc. It certainly appears to me that the lines have been drawn everywhere you look. This list is not all inclusive; I'm sure many more obvious divides exist and could be mentioned here.

Was Jesus was speaking of division among believers in one family or in society in general in the above 2 verses? In any case, division is apparent in this day and age to me. See the next 3 verses for some insight.

Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
Romans 16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

1 Corinthians 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

Study your Bibles completely; seek Him and His truths in the word.
