Hell

Two Ways of Life

Only Two Ways

Both the narrow gate and the wide gate are assumed to provide the entrance to God’s kingdom.  Two ways are offered to people.  The wide gate includes all religions of works and self-righteousness, but it leads to hell, not heaven.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Matthew 7:13,14.

Passing along the street near her

corner;

And he took the path to her house

In the twilight, in the evening,

In the black and dark night.

With her enticing speech she

caused him to yield,

an ox goes to the slaughter,

Or as a fool to the correction of

the stocks,

Proverbs 7:8-9, 21-22

What Man Can Do

Sustaining life to the moon and back,

this is what man can do.

Buying and selling men, women and children for the love of money, greed,

The heights of heaven and the depths of hell-

this is where man is and where man will be.

to kill themselves;

they attack their own lives.

Such are the paths of all

who pursue gain dishonestly;

it takes the lives of those

who profit from it.

Proverbs 1:18-19

For everyone who practices wicked things

hates the light and avoids it,

so that his deeds may not be exposed.

John 3:20
