Which Gate Will You Chose?

Matthew 7: 13-14

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

The Bible's New Testaments begin with the book of Matthew, the authorship is not certain, many agree that it was an apostle someone who witnessed the actual events. These stories were written after this person passed but were accounted for firsthand. What is known about this book is that it was written during a time that the Jewish faith was predominant. No matter the author. In fact no matter where this book was placed by the men in the years that the list of books and there placement was debated ( year 170), this book is very important.

The book of Matthew gives us an agenda. Tells us in lesson form what is to be. How one should act. And what the consequences are of the unclean, the unholy, the non believer. Examples to be found all over. 

Matthew 6: 22-23

“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy,your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

Matthew 6:1
Beware of practicing your piety before others in order to be seen by them; for then you have no reward from your Father in heaven.
