If Being Liked is Your Goal, Christian Discipleship Isn’t For You

‘Disciple is not superior to teacher, nor slave to master.  It is enough for disciple to grow to be like teacher, and slave like master. If they have called the master of the house “Beelzebul”, how much more the members of his household?  ‘So do not be afraid of them.

Everything now covered up will be uncovered, and everything now hidden will be made clear.  What I say to you in the dark, tell in the daylight; what you hear in whispers, proclaim from the housetops.  ‘Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; fear him rather who can destroy both body and soul in hell. (Matt. 10:24-28)

It’s weird that so many Christians would rather please people than God.
