Would You Demand that People Hate Their Families...If You Were Jesus?

“If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My follower.” (Jesus, quoted in Luke 14)

You'd say that? Come on. How about instead of "hate" you'd say, "distrust, challenge, question, leave behind", etc.? But hate? Your Good Book accuses Jesus of inciting hate against parents. The same book that teaches the Fifth Commandment: "Honor thy father and thy mother..."

Note this: It's a good thing Jesus didn't live under Moses' rule, because the Ole Lawgiver had this to say, as he quoted God: If anyone curses his father or mother, he must be put to death... (Leviticus 20)

You figure it out.
