Considering the Cost
In today's Gospel (St. Luke 14:25-25), Jesus points out the folly of building a tower without considering the cost, or of going to war without considering the strength of troops. So also taking a religion with no guarantees against a righteous God is folly. Only Jesus is the way; he alone is the one on whom the Father (in a voice from heaven) declared his good pleasure; so let us forsake all others and cleave only to him. The sermon.
