Criteria for Discipleship - 23rd Sunday of OT (C)


As difficult as it may be to hear at first, Jesus gives us His list of criteria for discipleship. This isn't just any criteria, but this is a list of criteria that is very off putting if we don't put His message in the proper context. What does he tell us to do? 1 - Hate your Family, 2 - Hate yourself, 3 - Carry Your Cross, 4 - Give up your possessions. What's the gist here? We must love the person, and hate the sin. He shows us what this all means through his own cross. What was the ultimate destination? It wasn't just death... it was love.
