Infatuation with preachers, teachers and ministries makes about as much sense as a man living with a woman who doesn’t love him just because he’s physically hooked on her, or a woman who sticks with a man who abuses her….and every bit as dangerous.
When Jesus talks about your enemies being in your own household, it can certainly be true they may be living under your own roof, but I believe he was primarily speaking of those wolves in sheep’s clothing set in the churches, or even coming through your television set.
34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
36And a man’s enemies shall be they of his own household.
37He that loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38And he that takes not his cross, and follows after me, is not worthy of me.
39He that finds his life shall lose it: and he that loses his life for my sake shall find it.Matthew 10
