The Straight and Narrow Path

Straight-Narrow-Path

By Gordon King

Matthew Chapter 7 verse 13 and 14: “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

Jesus tells us that the path to God is narrow, but the path to Hell is wide.  I take this to mean that there is only one way to God and that is through Jesus.

John 14:6  Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’

Oprah Winfrey has stated that there are many ways to Heaven and God.  That Jesus is only one way.  Well, this completely contradicts what the bible tells us.  Either she is right or wrong.  She can’t have it both ways.  By her saying that there are many ways to God, she is actually saying that the path is very wide.  The bible tells us that it is very narrow.  By her stating that there are many ways to God other than Jesus, she is saying that one can believe in idols and other gods.

The first of the Ten Commandments tells us:  “You shall not have any other god but me.”

The second Commandment:     Exodus 4-6 “You must not make for yourself an idol of any kind or an image of anything in the heavens or on the earth or in the sea. You must not bow down to them or worship them, for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God who will not tolerate your affection for any other gods. I lay the sins of the parents upon their children; the entire family is affected—even children in the third and fourth generations of those who reject me. But I lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on thosewho love me and obey my commands.”

So for anyone to say that there are many ways to God is false.  At least if you worship Jesus.  For there is but one way to God the Father and Jesus the son and that way is by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior!    Amen

  1. I agree! God’s Word the Bible makes it very clear, as you have pointed out. Remember, “deception” is satan’s greatest tool to lead us to destruction (spiritual death)! Bottom line: Are we going to believe the Bible, accept Jesus the Christ as our Savior (Romans 10:9-10 and 1 John 1:9) or are we going to spend eternity with the father of liars, who obviously hates us and wants to destroy us (1 Peter 5:8) and see us in torment for eternity? Another scripture: Col. 3:17 “And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Jesus.”

  2. I think George Bush Jr. made a similar comment to Oprah. They probably come to this point of view in order to maintain a broad support base. Nonetheless you are correct, there is no way to Heaven, but by the Lord. Thanks, http://www.saltwaterheart.com/

  4. YOU WILL DIE IN YOUR SINS BY STEVE FINNELL

    Many, who profess to be Christians, claim the Jesus is just one of many ways to heaven. If men would simply believe that the Bible is the only inerrant source for truth they could not reach that conclusion.

    John 8:24 “Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.”(NKJV)

    If you do not believe that Jesus is the Christ you will die in your sins. No man-made creed book can change that fact. To reject Jesus as the Messiah is the clear path to dying without forgiveness from sins.

    John 4:25-26 The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). When He comes, He will tell us all things.” 26 Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.”(NKJV)

    It does not matter how many Bible commentators or self-proclaimed Bible scholars believe Jesus is one of many ways to heaven, Jesus is the only Messiah.

    John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (NKJV)

    One way Jesus.

    Acts 4:10-12…..name of Jesus Christ….12 “Nor is salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”(NKJV)

    Pope Francis says atheists who do good works can go to heaven. Billy Graham proclaims that you do not even have to know the name of Jesus to be part of the body of Christ. Joel Osteen say he does not know if unbelievers will be lost or saved because he cannot judge. These professing Christians are not alone in their views. How sad is that?

    PEW FORUM OF RELIGION AND PUBLIC LIFE: 57% of the evangelical church believes there are many religions that lead to eternal life.

    IF YOU TRUST THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE FOR THE TRUTH, YOU WILL BELIEVE THE WORDS OF JESUS. “IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE THAT I AM HE YOU WILL DIE IN YOUR SINS.”
