I agree with you completely. What I find fascinating about Jesus is he single handedly brought down the Roman Empire. He also destroyed slavery. I hear people complaining that the Bible did not specifically decry slavery as an institution. Instead, Christianity made slavery an impossibility and incompatible with a christian civilization. No where on earth will you find Christianity and Slavery together. So Jesus did bring a Sword he just does stuff his way.
Really? That's no mean feat considering Rome didn't fall for almost 400 years after the death of Christ and if you consider Constantinople almost 800 years.
