Have you ever wondered what this passage means? Are we really to HATE everyone, just so we can “follow Yeshua?”
Luke 14:25 And while going, large crowds were with him. He turned and said to them, 26. He who comes to me and does not hate his father and his mother and his brothers and his sisters and his wife and his children and even himself, is not able to be a disciple to me. 27. And he who does not take up his stake and comes after me, is not able to be a disciple to me. (AENT).
So, while the word "hate" is actually an accurate translation of the Aramaic word “sna”, it also depends upon the context of the subject at hand. In Luke 14:26, the word doesn't mean you're to actually loathe your parents, etc. Rather, it refers to "hating" their unbelief enough to leave them to follow Yeshua.
