I come not to bring peace but a sword (Matthew 10:34)

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 (Matthew 10:21)

The kingdom of heaven is like a rich man who distributed his wealth to his servants while he traveled. He gave five talents to one servant, two to another, and one to a third. When he returned, the servant with five talents had made five more, the servant with two made two more, but the servant with one talent only had the talent his master entrusted to him. The master rewarded the servants that had risked his money and took the talent from the single-talent servant and gave it to the one with ten talents. "For unto every one that hath shall be given .. but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath." Then the cruel and unjust master cast the servant who carefully protected his master's talent into the "outer darkness: [where] there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." (paraphrased from Matthew 25:14 - 30)

It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid. (These are the OT laws, Luke 16:17)

Whoever curses father or mother shall die (Mark 7:10 et seq)

Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. (Romans 1:31 -32)

Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife. (i.e don't get married, 1 Corinthians 7:27)

Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. (1 Corinthians 34)

Then, of course, there's 1 Timothy I'm sure Hillary is really into that epistle.
