This is one of my Christian teaching books about which I get excited. It’s an analysis of scriptural requirements and how that differs from the experience of most Christians today.
Tim Côté did a superb job of narration and he was a joy to work with. Here’s the blurb:
This book is direct and to the point. In it we share a word the church does not want to hear in this modern age of political correctness. But we really need to consider the implications. “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.”
We must start with the narrowness. Many people are made nervous by this. It is obvious that most pastors and priests are. How can you build a church by telling the people things like this? It is not good to talk about exclusiveness. This is certainly part of the narrowness of the gate. In modern America this is where we get into trouble very quickly from the PC media police. Jesus could not have made it clearer. This aspect of the narrowness is made clear by many things he said.
If you are into the words of Jesus typeset in red ink – these are in red. He lays it out boldly – in a way that cannot be ignored. “Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved.” However, it is obvious to us all that today many local church pastors have trouble saying that Jesus is the gate, the door to the life abundant. It is commonly not preached because the whole approach sounds a bit narrow-minded. But it is much stronger than that. As you will see in this book, many powerful, active church members will find themselves outside with no way to enter heaven.
This book will give you guidance to find the truth
Pray the Holy Spirit will revel all of this to you. As the Day of the Lord when the King comes back draws near, it is crucial for you to have your ducks in a row. This life is the only chance we have to get it right.
Turn to Jesus today! Talk with Him, come to know Him. The Scriptures will help you, but you need to talk it out with Him. He’s waiting for you!
