I haven't read any of the other response except the OP because it is a very salient point.If the narrow path is Christianity (or any religion)
Yahoshua is WAY off base.The kicker is what follows though..
MANY[as in many are called and the many of the wide path] will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your
name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful work.
The "many" believe this is the heathens. ...but since when do the heathens call him Lord and do things IN his NAME(which is a whole other
Just like ALL the scriptures (and especially Yahoshuas words) they are not what they appear to be on the surface.The fact is what the OP's basic
supposition assumes is correct.God is NOT just going to "save" a few..he IS (it's an infinite process not an event) saving ALL.The few are those that
GOD has caused to walk down the narrow path to the narrow gate (..metaphors).
The point here is NONE can walk (or even find it)it on their own.There is no "prayer" or pious acts of casting out demons ,miracles or good works that
will lead anyone down the narrow paths gate.This SHOULD be obvious to all yet it is completely misunderstood.The beauty is it doesn't have to be.The
Truth is in what is happening not what someone falsely believes.God IS saving "delivering"EVERYONE and EVERYTHING from the valley of the shadow of
death we live in....the physical universe.How it all works is WAY beyond our comprehension and more importantly(thank God) WAY beyond our control(many
will hate that Truth).
The fact is God is 100% sovereign and in control of EVERYTHING.Regardless of mankind's poor perception of reality everything is going according to
plan.To believe in anything less is to live and die in fear(the valley of the SHADOW of death).That is the 1st part of the deliverance....the"narrow"
path and gate.
