This triangle of truisms, of father, mother and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it. – G.K. Chesterton
Jesus said, “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.” – Matthew 7:13-14
Jesus said, “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, He will sit upon His glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before Him. And He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep on His right and the goats on His left. Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.’ … Then He will say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.’…And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” – Matthew 25:31-33, 41, 46
“Then He will say to those on His left, ‘Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.’ “
Jesus said, “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world because of things that cause sin! Such things must come, but woe to the one through whom they come! If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter into life maimed or crippled than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into eternal fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into fiery Gehenna.” – Matthew 18:6-9
Was Jesus just a nice man, a teacher like Buddha, or is He Who he said He is? He came as the Suffering Servant, in part to show us how much He loves us. His love is a consuming blaze, like a refiner’s fire which will burn off all the dross and slag and leave only gold.
Do you think you can ignore what Jesus said, and who He actually is?
