causes?

I warned that many would come in my name that I didn’t send. I could foresee the growth of my church and the spread of the gospel message, and a deserved reputation for virtue for myself. Many would seek to enlist support for their own causes under my banner, and use my name to advance their own interests. But my message transcends the causes of men. Joshua encountered my angel and asked if he was for him or for his enemies. Even though he was captain of my army the answer was neither. I ask my followers to lay down their lives that they may follow me. This includes giving up their own causes that they may devote themselves to my cause.
