The benefits of being “narrow”

“While this truth may be familiar to you, may we emphasize it again. A holy God has the right to determine the basis upon which sinners come into His presence. God has determined that no one can find forgiveness of sins and be accepted of Him unless he receives Jesus Christ as his own Savior and trusts Him alone for salvation. To offer God anything other than the death of Jesus Christ as the basis of salvation is to offer a man-made religion. It is a ‘broad way,’ no matter what form it takes, that leads eventually to destruction. One must approach God through the gate He has opened. That gate is His crucified Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. ‘Enter in at that narrow gate.'” –Dr. J. Dwight Pentecost, in his book Design for Living

Amen to every last word of that.
