I'm hardly an expert, so I don't know of any such passages. I wouldn't
be surprised to find one or two. It certainly tries to make it
understood that Christianity will incite violence. --
18And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for
a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
19But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall
speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
20For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which
speaketh in you.
21And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the
father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents,
and cause them to be put to death.
22And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that
endureth to the end shall be saved.
23But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for
verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel,
till the Son of man be come.
By all implications, we shouldn't be surprised nor concerned. All is
right with the world if violence arises when Christianity is present.
It's just another sign that tells Christians that they're doing the
right thing. They need not actually perform violence. They naturally
incite it simply by speaking up. It's expected.
