Jesus Hated Family Values by Ben Garrett

Jesus Hated Family Values

"Throughout his ministry, Jesus is in conflict with both the notion of family (Mt. 20:34-37, Mt.19:1-10, Mt. 23:9) and his own family (Lk. 2: 42-52, Mk. 3:21). If we move beyond Jesus’ ministry and look at the epistles and the practice of early Christians we see this conflict continuing and becoming institutionalized. The Christians’ decision to address each other as brothers and sisters deeply disturbed the surrounding society. Indeed, because of this practice and that their ritual greetings included kissing, Christians were accused of incest."
