Burning People, Sort Of

With all the talk of “Family Values” amongst conservative Christians we should remember that Jesus separates people from their families if necessary. In Luke he says to hate your family if they keep you from being a disciple. Now you can dilute the word hate to something less volatile if you want (possibly a translational problem) but the message is still the same–follow Jesus at all costs including your family. I guess ya gotta do what ya gotta do if God says “jump” but this godly command seems a bit anti-family values.

  1. That’s right–Jesus was not pro-family. Most conservatives are interested the most in preserving the culture of Christianity, not actually following Jesus.
