Does preaching the Biblical truth found in the new testament Scriptures lead to harmony, unity, and acceptance by the world and by believers in Jesus Christ? No, it does not.

Matthew 10:34-36 "Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; 36 and a man's enemies will be the members of his household.(NASB)

Anyone who has the audacity to preach or teach 
 the truth as found in the new testament Scriptures will not only be criticized by family members, but ostracized by fellow Christians and the world as well.

The truth in Christ promotes conflict with those who reject God's written word.

Jesus was crucified for not only preaching truth, but for being the Truth.

Eleven out of the twelve apostles were executed for preaching the truth.

Truth that causes conflict.
1. Teaching that immersion in water is essential to salvation. (Mark 16:16)

2. Proclaiming that Jesus is the only way to heaven. (John 14:6)

3. Teaching that is a sin to worship by praying to the Virgin Mary.(Matthew 4:10)

4. Teaching that Christians can lose their salvation.(1 Timothy 4:1-5)

5. Teaching that Christians should avoid those who cause division by teaching false doctrine. (Romans 16:17)

6. Teaching that men have the free-will to accept or reject the gospel. (John 3:16)

Preaching God's truth does not promote peace among those who do not love the truth.(2 Thessalonians 2:10 and with all deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.)NASB
