A Bible Journey, 110: The Strait And Narrow Way
"Ye shall be holy unto Me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be Mine"
The Messiah was Sacrificed for repentant sinners, not for self-righteous rebels (see Christ Died For Repentant Sinners). There is a lake of fire coming for those who refuse to repent (see What Believers Will Be In The Lake Of Fire?).
There are millions of people today who have been misled into the Satanic fraud that they can do whatever they please as "Christians," as long as they "believe on the name of Jesus." They claim to be Christian, but ignore or reject what the Messiah actually taught and commanded (see Why Call Me, Lord, Lord, and Do Not The Things Which I Say?).
Note that "strait," as used in these verses quoted below, means a narrow passage, as in the right way, whereas "straight" merely means direct - without the right way, self-righteous people can still go "straight to hell."
"7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate [see The Strait Gate]: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
The Laws of the LORD (Who was and is Jesus Christ; see The Real Jesus: The Word Of The LORD God and A Bible Journey, 56: The Sacred Name) are about joyous life and true freedom, not miserable existence and anarchy that those who refuse to repent choose to live, and die, by (see What Was The Lesson Of John 3:16?).
"20:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 20:2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. 20:3 And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name. 20:4 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not: 20:5 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
Fact Finder: What does "saved" actually mean? When will it happen?
