Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written,“Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary,“if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
they wiped fueding sects of christianity right off the face of the earth. As recently as the balkan conflict we had christians killing other christians and muslims in the name of their god.

look at the least religious countries on the planet, helathies, happiest citizenry, best educated kids, hifghest standards of living... you know, not cave men...
