Jesus expected far too much of his disciples
The first 200 words of this essay...
"Jesus expected far too much of his disciples. Christians today cannot possibly make such sacrifices." Do you agree? Give reasons for your answer showing that you have considered more than one point of view.
This statement may be true because firstly he asked his disciples to drop and forget all they had and follow him. There are very few Christians today who would be able to do this. If they were to put God first and leave all that they had, like Jesus' disciples did, it would be very hard to live as the disciples did today as there are far more many distractions in life and with greater technology comes more luxuries in life.
Another of Jesus' instructions to his disciples was to drive out demons and heal the sick. There has been no record of a healing miracle since the time of Jesus. Not even the disciples could perform miracles, so how can somebody today, without Jesus directly speaking to them, how can Christians today be able to heal the sick and drive out demons?
In order to become a disciple you have to forget about yourself. So your appearance is no longer a matter
