The Way to Life is Narrow

"And someone said to Him, ‘Lord, are there just a few who are being saved? And He said to them, ‘Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able." Luke 13:23-24

I don’t want to be guilty of holding a view that is really too narrow, but the Way of true Christianity is a narrow one.

 In Matthew’s Gospel Jesus is quoted as saying that the road to life is straight and narrow, and the road to destruction is wide. A Samaritan woman once took issue with Jesus over where God should be worshiped. She said that her ancestors had always worshiped God on a mountain and was offended that the Jews insisted that He be worshiped at Jerusalem.

Jesus’ answered surprised her, -"You worship what you do not know. . .those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and in Truth." Though she believed that she had been worshiping the true God, here Jesus was telling her plainly that she did not know God.

Satan is very crafty and is skilled in philosophic deception. The Bible warns that there is a way which seems right but it ends in death. (Prov.16:25) God expects people to seek Him and His will. Those who fail to seek God and His purpose for their lives will have no excuse at judgment.

All pagan religions stem from demonic spirits and the imagination of men. Human reasoning is influenced by fallen spirits and results in idolatry of some kind. Idolatry is not just the practice of worshiping an idol one can see, it can also be a deception set up in the mind. Like the Samaritan woman, many venerate a god of their own making - a god of their imagination which is not so offensive to them as the God of the Bible.

Truth is not what you convince yourself of, truth is what God declares it to be. Delusion and lies will always seek you, but when it comes to truth you must do the seeking. By personal experience we know that the whole truth about anything must always be actively pursued - truth never just falls in your lap. Jesus said that the truth is designed to set us free.

Where there is deception there is captivity and where there is truth there is freedom.
