Salvation’s Long and Narrow Way

Shades of wavy grass

Trampled by a chosen few

Forms a narrow path


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

Matthew 7:13-14 NIV

This has always been one of those passages that made me think about how one is saved. A lot of Christians tell me that “all you have to do is believe.” But, what if Jesus is right when he told his followers that you must do all of these things (commands) and then he throws out a verse that says, “… only a few will find it.” He dies on the cross to pay for our sins! Then he’ll come back to judge the sinless, the living, and the dead. And only a “few” of the sinless will travel down the path to eternal life. Of course, not all Christians are on board with this teaching. Or they have an entirely different interpretation of this Bible verse. The Bible is one mysterious and confusing book.

I love traveling with my wife all over the world. I enjoy the study of nutrition and cooking plant-based meals. I consider myself a Christian agnostic when it comes to god and religion. Namaste, Vic
