It sounds more like you have lost faith in mankind than God.
Don't place high expectations on Christians, we can fail in our
walk with God and need His help, and just because we fail is no reason for you to blame God and walk away.
It is hard to walk away from God, once you have been under His wing. God will never 'walk away from you. Walk away from what mankind invents that God says, and there are many.
Trust your Heart on what God tells you , not Man.

If you're having a conversation, it's with an ape. From Wiki:

"Hominidae consists of orangutans, gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and humans. Alternatively, the hominidae family are collectively described as the great apes."

You're welcome.

The Noahide Laws were Rabbinical interpretations of what a Gentile in Hebrew lands should obey.
Jesus added "Love your enemies".
Maimonides codified the 613 commandments of Judaism in the Middle Ages.
Modern Judaism is actually Maimodinism as Modern Christianity is actually Paulinism.

certainly the 10 Commandments are moral and just.
The Ten Commandments are an absurd moral code. The first forty percent are about submission and worship. Narcissistic much?

Then there's one to kids about honoring their parents and one to spouses about sex outside of the marriage. On the top ten list?

The list says not to lie, lust or envy. But where is justice, integrity, kindness, and compassion in that list?

And the list says not to murder and steal. If it's going to list specific crimes, it left out quite a few, such as blackmail, arson, kidnapping and rape.

The Ten Commandments are woefully inadequate.

Meekness is: enduring injury with patience and without resentment, slow to anger, non violent in nature.
The essence of meek is passive or submissive, which was original point of calling the beatitudes a slave ethic. Meek is the opposite of willful or assertive.

Incidentally, when you copy text without quotes or attribution, it's called plagiarizing. Let's look at the rest of your source:

Meek:
1. enduring injury with patience and without resentment
2. deficient in spirit and courage : submissive
3. not violent or strong : moderate

Look at what you did to that. We call that cherry picking.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
If any one 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 disciple.- Jesus (Luke 14:26)
Our anointed Savior often taught to the extreme. For example...

John 15:13
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Extreme, but unless we adopt such an extreme attitude toward one another, we're forever bound by each and every individual perception of love by each and every individual person. And look how profitable that's been for us, so far.

Matthew 18:8-9
Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

Extreme, again. But, common sense tells us how futile such an extreme sacrifice would be, to rid ourselves of one body part while leaving the other. If we pluck out one eye because we can't control our lusts, who's to say we won't lust with the remaining eye? But, our anointed Savior taught to such extremes in order to express the gravity of the situation. Perfection should be our goal, and his teaching serve as a warning to all of us, that excuses won't be accepted as to why we didn't make a valiant effort. I'm sure you've heard many a so-called "Christian" admit to premature defeat by claiming that none can become perfect, but such a foolish declaration contradicts what's written and instructed us. Many a so-called "Christian" prefers the lazy, er, lukewarm path to heaven. Now, to address the verse you quoted.

Luke 14:26
If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

I think it's obvious our anointed Savior wouldn't just blatantly disregard the law without a justifiable reason. Again, we're faced with extreme measures. Perhaps, my illustration might explain this extreme measure.

It's been proven that such celebrations as Christmas and Easter derive from paganism. Now, after learning this, the choice becomes ours. Do we separate ourselves from these pagan practices because we love "God," or do we continue observing them because we love our loved-ones more, and we're more afraid of offending them, or hurting their feelings? Understand?

I was just wondering the same thing, Mr. Bighorn.

But why ask me? Ask the Romans. It was their choice to make him suffer. Stipulating for the moment that Jesus actually lived and was crucified, the Romans' point in making him suffer rather than executing him quickly was likely to have him serve as a disincentive to others not to commit the crimes that he was convicted of.

BTW, didn't you deny being a Christian?

Nonsense. Turning the other cheek is offering your aggressor a second blow. It incites further violence. What fraction of people do you suppose that are angry and violent enough to strike your one cheek would not accept your provocative offer and whack you again?
