Discussion for Luke 14

  • Ray jay
    Perhaps Christ is simply referencing sin and hypocrisy in all of us. The 12 apostles see and hate the sin in all of us, including themselves and they know Christ is the TRUTH, LIGHT and LIFE and are willing to follow him even if it means persecution. They are sick and tired of sin even in family. The regular crowd following Christ perhaps doesn’t understand all that; so he’s blunt to them

    If we only go by what is the language of the Scriptures of truth, and forget for a few minutes all the things many teachers and pastors have SAID was the meaning; then we see that its not unlawful to actually be just, and therefore to claim that one is just. God gave us a whole Bible so that we would be just and true, toward Himself and toward each other. How else can we learn to discern judgment?
  • Servant of God
    The resurrection of the just, no man can claim to be just and on his own sit in the higher seats lest he be shown the door, so to speak. Or before we build we asses the cost lest we be mocked for the shambles we leave behind.
