For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles.” John 6:66-69 “ 66 From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more. 67 Then Jesus said to the twelve, "Do you also want to go away?" 68 But Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we go?
