Here is the Biblical reference given in their plain-spoken farewell note:
Now great multitudes approached Him; and He turned and said to them, "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters and yes, even his own life, he canot be My disciple. Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, 'This man began to build, and was not able to finish.' Or what king, going to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and take counsel wheter he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? And if not, while the other is yet a great way off, he senda an embassy and asks terms of peace. So, therefore, whoever of you does not renounce all that he has canot be My disciple.
"Salt is good, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is fit neither for the land nor the dunghill; men throw it away. He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
