According to German Pastor and Theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the answer is “NO”! That is why he wrote The Cost of Discipleship

Bonhoeffer probes the seemingly “impossible demands” of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount against the economic materialism, patriotic militarism, and ruthless racism to which Christians and their churches had succumbed in Nazi Germany.  What Jesus was commanding his followers thus became the guideline of every chapter of this book.
