|difficult and leads to life||leads to destruction|
I will tell you this. Man likes to worship himself. Society says that it is impotant to take care of number one. Jesus told us to take care of each other. Jesus wanted us to be a family.
The narrow path leads to life. The broad path leads to destruction. To be honest, we want to choose the narrow path. Many people want to take the easy path to Christianity, but there is no easy path to Christianity. Do you remember that Sinner's Prayer that is provided to many when they come into the church? That is not God's way. God requires you to deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow Jesus. Let's examine these three:
Self is an enemy. You have self-love, which is pride which says, "I will do this my way instead of Christ's." You also have self righteousness, which is someone who says that they are righteousness and they are perfect and do not need discipline. Then, there is self-reliance, which says, "that I have all that I need and I don't need you." All of these people are walking on the broad path.
