A King Was Born In June I Am Who I Am Your Approval Isn’t Needed Shirt, hoodie, tank top
… I’m with you , MERIFOUR ! The psuedo-pious hubris that BushCo. Has displayed must vex our Lord mightily , and one must wonder how much more the Father can take , before it’s time to take the ‘ Chris-stains ‘ to the woodshed ! Perhaps he already has an emissary on the way – is that not a arch-angel on the horizon ? His name is Fitzgerald , Patrick Fitzgerald ( cue 007 theme song ) ! …

You missed the point in Matt 10:34. Read the whole chapter.
The actual quote is this: “Think not that I came to bring peace on the earth, for I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” (Not WAR.) The sword is a metaphor. Just a few verses earlier in the chapter (Matt 10:16) Jesus says this: “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.”
You have to read the entire chapter to understand that Jesus is talking about an invisible sword used to sever ties to people who are not hearing the message.
By not bringing PEACE, he is referring to the agitation which will naturally occur when people’s belief systems are challenged.

Thank you Lydia for this excellent blog!
I, too, am looking forward to your book and excited that Brad and Dan Borchers are collaborating with you.

That is true too, & makes sense. While the Bible is a good book and so is the Koran for teaching of God and not denouncing him, it frequently is mis-interpreted beyond rational understanding.
With that, the law is also misinterpeted. I don’t really follow any book except the Book of Mormon, because in its most base form it has the strongest amount of truth foretold in it. It also has that feeling to me of sacred ancient writing.
