The Progress-Index - - OPINION -

Now great mul­ti­tudes ac­com­pa­nied [ Je­sus]; and he turned and said to them, “If any one comes to me and does not hate his own fa­ther and mother and wife and chil­dren and broth­ers and sis­ters, yes, and even his own life, he can­not be my dis­ci­ple. Who­ever does not bear his own cross and come af­ter me, can­not be my dis­ci­ple. For which of you, de­sir­ing to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to com­plete it? Oth­er­wise, when he has laid a foun­da­tion, and is not able to fin­ish, all who see it be­gin to mock him, say­ing, `This man be­gan to build, and was not able to fin­ish.’ Or what king, go­ing to en­counter an­other king in war, will not sit down first and take coun­sel whether he is able with ten thou­sand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thou­sand? And if not, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends an em­bassy and asks terms of peace. So there­fore, who­ever of you does not re­nounce all that he has can­not be my dis­ci­ple.

Luke 14:25-33
