Does what a person believe matter? I can assure you there are parents at Penn State who would say yes; what one man believed destroyed my kid's life. People in Boston would say yes.

He said what the Greek culture teaches; what the Roman Empire demands; what my former Jewish colleagues embrace cannot be amalgamated into the church without severe damage being done from compromising divine truth with human error and for that Nero will cut off his head.

Trust is a critical component in our relationship with God. Since God alone makes salvation possible, you MUST trust God for salvation. Since God rewards sacrifice for His Kingdom, you CAN trust Him with your sacrifice. It is not easy, but it is worth it.
In this parable, Jesus tells a story of a rich man content in his own wealth. This attitude of self-sufficiency can lead to arrogance or anxiety, both of which lead away from God. Instead, Jesus calls us to seek His kingdom and to joyfully submit to our Shepherd.
