Luke 14:26

“If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother,

his wife and children,

his brothers and sisters–yes,

even his own life–he cannot be my disciple.


 If a statement can’t be literally true without contradicting other statements the same person said, then it is obvious the contradictory statement must mean something else not yet understood. 

P.S. In this case it is more than likely a problem with a literal translation without taking into account the nuances of the original language spoken.


lover of his Father, Mother, Brothers, Sisters, Friends,

myself as well as a disciple of Christ.
