"Whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple."
and Rom. 10:13,
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
ANSWER: No one can effectually call upon the name of the Lord without abandoning every other hope and without an all surrendering trust, which includes the man himself and all his possessions — not that he is to give all his money to the first tramp that comes along, but to regard all as cheap in contrast with Christ, and to hold all as his steward to be administered for his glory. There is no contradiction in these texts.
