35For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
35 Verse 35. I am come to set a man at variance] The spirit of
Christ can have no union with the spirit of the world. Even a
father, while unconverted, will oppose a godly child. Thus the
spirit that is in those who sin against God is opposed to that
spirit which is in the followers of the Most High. It is the
spirits then that are in opposition, and not the persons.
