Not Through Peace

by Darlene Franz, voice and harmonium



Yeshua said,
"People may think that I have come to bring peace to the world.
They do not know that I have come to sow division upon the earth: fire, sword, war.
When there are five in a house, three will be against two and two against three; father against son and son against father.
And they will stand, and they will be alone and simple.
---Gospel of Thomas, Saying 16 (tr. Jean-Yves Leloup)


Not through peace, but through division,
You shall stand as one, as one: you shall stand as one.
