Luke 14 " Now great crowds were traveling with him, and he turned and said to them: 26 If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own soul,*+ he cannot be my disciple.+ 27 Whoever is not carrying his torture stake* and coming after me cannot be my disciple.+ 28 For example, who of YOU that wants to build a tower does not first sit down and calculate the expense,+ to see if he has enough to complete it?<quoted text>
Of course the Bible contradicts itself.
Ephesians 6:2 Honour thy father and mother
No problems. I can do that.
Luke 14:26 "If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sistersyes, even their own lifesuch a person cannot be my disciple."
There's Jesus telling us to hate our parents.
clearly he was giving an illustration. These illustration have a meaning and are not to be taken literal.
if you read the WHOLE account he was talking to those who wanted to follow him you have to give 100 percent.
all you did was twist one one scripture , You have to read the whole thing if you want to get the sense of it.
matthew 4;5 Then the Devil took him along into the holy city,+ and he stationed him upon the battlement of the temple 6 and said to him:If you are a son of God, hurl yourself down;+ for it is written,He will give his angels a charge concerning you, and they will carry you on their hands, that you may at no time strike your foot against a stone.
satan twisted scriptures as well. Was he right in his interpretation ,No he wasnt he had a wrong motive behind itand jesus did not fall for it.
