There is no more divisive name in history, or in the present, than Jesus. Where there is division there is persecution. Where there is persecution there is humiliation. Where there is humiliation there is suffering. This week Pastor Greg Whaley looks at Luke 15:18-25 and expounds upon Jesus' words to His disciples about His coming humiliation, suffering and death. Listen as Pastor Whaley addresses the following questions: If we call Jesus "Master" do we still belong to this world?
