Narrow is the Way to Heaven

Post  WordofLife on Sun 18 Jan 2009, 10:36 pm

According to polls a surprising number of people believe there is more than one way to Heaven. Even some of our Christian churches lean toward the idea that there is more than one way to the Father.

Since Christianity itself rests upon "God's plan of salvation," and His plan is so clear that even a child can understand, how can these Church leaders take such a stance?

There is a group referred to as the "politically correct" that is placing pressure on our churches. Their ideology says that Christians should not offend others by having the audacity to claim that there is only one way to Heaven.

We must beware of this trend toward a "Politically Correct Way to Heaven," else the unsaved who follow that teaching will spend eternity in Hell.

Based upon God's word neither Polls nor opinions can show us the way to Heaven. We must rely only on His written word. "The Way" was a designation for early Christians. It was "The Way" to Heaven then, and is "The Way" to Heaven now.

The scriptures tell us that Jesus died on the cross so that we might have eternal life.

  • "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16)

  • "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12

  • Jesus said "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:5-7)


There is Only one Way to Heaven
A church that teaches anything other than God's plan of salvation cannot show you the way to heaven. The way to Heaven, is found only in God's Plan of Salvation

Learn to search the scriptures, then believe what you find. Rely on God's word, it will show you the way to Heaven.

Peter said to allow God's word to be "...a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts". (2 Peter 1:19)

It gates narrower and narrower when;

  • We live in sinful lives and do not repent of sins
  • When we try to justify our sinful lives by twisting the verses of the Bible
  • When we see no God
  • In hardships when we curse God and blame Him for everything going wrong in our lives
  • When we blame God and others for our own actions
  • When we are too casual and take God non-seriously
  • When we forget to give thanks to God for everything
  • When we forget to study the Word of God
  • When we do not pray to God
  • When we try to justify ourselves in this modern world by saying that the law was for olden times and is not applicable in our lives.
  • When we love worldly things more than God
  • When we do not let go of worldly things for God
  • When we seek mercy of God but do not show it to others
  • When we seek kindness from God and we do not show it to others


There are many more reasons I believe that it makes the Gate narrower and narrower, right now I these excuses I could remember. I hope others may add more to it.

Blessings in Jesus

I would add Pride and turning deaf ear to the God's Word.

Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like (James 1:23-24)

Not so the wicked!
They are chaff
that the wind blows away.
Therefore, the wicked will not stand in the judgment
nor sinner in the assembly of the righteous (Psalms 1:4)


It is so nice to be a member of this forum and I love reading the articles posted by members of this forum. This forum is politically correct and this is what I like it. If there is wrong preaching going on, you guys are quick to put that preaching down by reasoning and not by banning someone. God bless you all.

This is an interesting topic and YES the gate is narrow. I would also like to share on the topic;

In his arrogance the wicked man
hunts down the weak
who are caught in the schemes he
devises.
He boasts of the cravings of his
heart;
he blesses the greedy and reviles
the LORD.
In his pride the wicked does not seek
seek Him;
His ways are always prosperous;
He says to himself, "Nothing will
shake me;
I'll always be happy and never
have trouble."
His mouth is full of curses and lies
and threats;
trouble and evil are under his
tongue.
He lies in wait near villages;
from ambush he murders the
innocent,
watching in secret for his
victims.
He lies in wait like a lion in cover;
he lies in wait to catch the the
helpless;
he catches the
helpless;
he catches the helpless and drags
them off in his net.
His victims are crushed, they
collapse;
He says to himself, "God has
forgotten;
he covers his face and never
sees." (Psalm 10:2-11)
