You are missing plenty. AND taking more scripture out of context.<quoted text>
What am I missing here?
"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".--Luke 14:26
What does Jesus mean when HE says to hate?
Is there a biblical dictionary somewhere?
In this context, yes there is.
In Genesis chapter 29, the story of Jacob, Rachel, and Leah. If you read, study and understand Genesis 29, you'll understand that in this context to be "hated" is to be loved less than another.
I don't expect you to understand.
You're atheist goggles are too thick.
