Jesus: I come not to bring peace,but a sword

If you're a Jehovah's Witness who is having a "crisis of conscience"(so to speak) because you know the Watchtower isn't REALLY God's "channel of communication" and you're disheartened because you know you might be shunned or labelled by even your own family if you leave,what does Jesus have to say about this?

  1. Whereas Jesus’ words, being if nothing else but translation of sublime insight to a common will, the “I come not to bring peace but a sword” episode in essence means you cause your loved-ones grief, then justify your perceptions of it in hope for their forgiveness.
    So that this final desperate war he speaks of is fought and won within; in you, in your family; not in public. And, all other warriors; fathers-sons, sisters-brothers, mothers-daughters; they are their opponent themselves, having no time to fight you.
    As to my justifying my means to my ends, how so very hard must I conquer, when my own worst enemy is me.
