In last week’s crazy Bible verse I discussed Luke 14:26 in which Jesus makes it clear that he comes before family. In fact, you are required to HATE your family in order to love Jesus. This week I bring you another example of Jesus requiring you to HATE your family to love him.
“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.” – Matthew 10:21-22
Brothers will betray brothers to death. A father will kill his child. Children will kill their parents. Why? To follow Jesus. What…the…fuck?!?!?! This is the loving savior Christians worship? Jesus isn’t loving! He demands you hate your family. He demands you kill your family. If you stand firm on this you will be saved. If you aren’t firm, you won’t be saved. WOW! Simply wow!!! Christians, please read your Bible. Not just the cherry picked verses you read once every fourth Sunday when you finally make it to church. Read EVERY verse in the Bible.
These two verses are the direct words of Jesus. Either Jesus said this and he’s worse than Satan, or Jesus didn’t say this in which case the Bible should be thrown away. It should be thrown away regardless, but what reason do Christians have to read the Bible if Jesus wasn’t real?
