Luke 14:26 speaks to Jehadist suicide bombers? And to young USA adults? Yep.
The sermon last Sunday was on Luke 14:26. Paraphrasing what was read,
‘hate your family & your own life…. sell all your possessions …
carry your cross …and follow me…”
[Large crowds were now traveling with Jesus, and He turned and said to them, 26“If anyone comes to Me anddoes not hate his father and mother and wife and childrenand brothers and sisters — yes, even his own life — he cannot be My disciple. 27And whoever does not carry his cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple.…]
What does Luke 14:26 have to do with jehadists? We know from the daily news that jehadists suicide bombers hate ….. They their life and the lives of their families enough to kill.
For sure jehadists either have no possessions or are quite willing to sell or give away all possessions as they take their own life and the lives of others. And jehadists have ‘taken up their ‘cross’ to ‘follow’ their religious leader.
What about young USA adults?
What about the young Americans who still live in their parent’s garage, don’t own a car and don’t want to buy stuff.
How about he young USA adults who graduated from college with $60 K debt and don’t have a job to pay off the dept?
Lots and lots of young USA adults supported the Democrat candidate that did not get the nomination — millions of young USA adults supported Bernie Sanders.
And why? For one thing, college debt will be forgiven. And for a second reason, the government will give all of them a “good job” doing some “green type” service to others which will “save the planet”
A lot of young American adults probably do hate living in their parent’s house at age 25.
And many young USA adults do sympathize with Bernie Sanders who was not able to get a job until he was age 40.
Some young people wonder if they will ever have a job, much less a good paying job.
