War and peace

Jesus said blessed are the peacemakers. Matthew 5:9

He also said He did not come to bring peace, but a sword. Matthew 10:34

There a lot of other seemingly contradictory verses on the subject, but I hope the point has been made. How am I supposed to reconcile these polar-opposite statements? To quote the great Dr. Francis Schaeffer, how should we then live?


I am not smart enough to answer that question…
