NARROW OR BROAD WAY?
There are two directions which can be taken: The road to restoration, or the road to apostasy. The road to restoration means a return to the narrow way, the faith of the New Testament church. The road to apostasy means to depart from the “faith once and for all entrusted to the saints” (Jude 3). Jesus said men “lay aside the commands of God and hold on to traditions of men” (Mk 7:8). In every generation, religious leaders arise to lead men either “back to” or “away from” the old path of God. Every person must choose which way he will go (Josh 24:15). Jesus spoke of such a challenge: “Enter by the narrow gate; For the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it” (Mt 7:13-14). Today we hear much about big churches with their big budgets and multi-million dollar buildings, but not much is heard about which path they have chosen (Jer 6:16). Big does not have to be bad, but it is a cause of caution. Jesus said His way is “the narrow way,” found by only a few. Ask for list of 12 ways of apostasy in one big church in DFW.
