Did Jesus come to bring peace or not? | Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry: "Context is the key to Jesus' words. In Matthew 10:34, Jesus is speaking about the divisions that will come, even among family members, over their belief or lack of belief about Him. In that respect, He has come to bring division. This context is also related in Luke 12:51."

Are we saved by faith or by baptism? | Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry: "There is much debate within Christianity as to whether or not baptism is necessary for salvation. I cannot here exhaustively examine this issue, but I can affirm that baptism is not necessary for salvation."

Harvest Daily Devotion for 8/12/2011: "The Message Proclaimed": "From the original Greek, we could translate the final question in Romans 10:14 as, 'How shall they hear without one preaching?' The Phillips translation puts it this way, 'How can they hear unless someone proclaims Him?' Therefore, we see the emphasis is not on a preacher, but on preaching."
