"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. (Matthew 10:34)

For I have come to turn "'a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law - (Matthew 10:35)

a man's enemies will be the members of his own household.' (Matthew 10:36)

"Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; (Matthew 10:37)

and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. (Matthew 10:38)

Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. (Matthew 10:39)
