Luke 14:26-33

(26) "If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. (27) And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.

The Same Mind, Judgment, and Speech (Part One)

by David C. Grabbe

Back in late-2001, my wife Mikele and I took advantage of the cheap airfares that followed the events of September 11 that year, spending several weeks in England, Scotland, and Wales. While in Scotland, we visited the renowned Loch Ness and took a bus tour around areas of the lakeshore. Throughout the tour, we heard various opinions from our tour guide and fellow tourists about the infamous Loch Ness monster's existence. Some held that something was in the lake and that not all the reports could be coincidental. The more skeptical maintained that not enough concrete evidence existed. As …
