The Gospel Will Produce Conflict

In every generation the gospel will have to be reaffirmed because if you preach the gospel — boldly and accurately — it will produce conflict.

—RC Sproul quoting Martin Luther
Together for the Gospel 2006

Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household. Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

—Jesus Christ
Matthew 10:34-39
