The Two Roads: Toward Destruction or Life

The Two Roads: Toward Destruction or Life
Yeshua/Jesus says that there are two roads: a broad way that leads to destruction and a narrow way that leads toward life. While many of us may desire the way that leads toward life, he said, “few there be that find it”.

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matthew 7:13-14 KJV)

The road we’re on, while we hope is the strait and narrow one, periodically presents us with choices to make concerning our next steps.

Sometimes these choices are big and obvious, such as: Do we believe in a Creator: yes or no? or Are there consequences to my actions?

In cases like these the road splits into two roads, where both are well traveled, and we have to choose to take one or the other.

But oftentimes there are small divergent paths off these main roads we’re on, and they can go unnoticed, primarily due to our being swept up with the mainstream, we don’t bother looking for alternate routes.

When one of those small divergent paths grabs our attention, like when we come across something in the Bible that begs us to question, and we are tempted to explore it further.

I call the recognition of one of these divergent paths, The Fork in the Road. To the traveler who isn’t paying much attention to their surroundings, these forks may appear to be a distraction, but for many of us they are significant.

This community was created to provide a safe place to explore those paths with other folks who hold the Bible in esteem, fearing the God who made Heaven and Earth, and following His Messiah, Yeshua/Jesus as taught about in the Bible.

Our goal as the Messyanic Misfits Community is to encourage one another on the way toward life, regardless of the path we're currently on. Choosing to love one another in this journey, we also hold each other accountable to what the Bible teaches, in our words and deeds, continually striving to walk the path that has been set before us by our heavenly Father.

You are welcome to join us. Smile

RE: The Two Roads: Toward Destruction or Life
The only stipulation we have in this community concerning subject matter is that a central element within this community is the Bible, and we recognize it as authoritative...all of it. While there may be textual criticisms in various portions of the book, we believe the texts therein to contain valuable truth. Therefore, while each person is welcome to his/her personal understandings/beliefs, please do not campaign against the Bible or any portions thereof here.

Thanks.

RE: The Two Roads: Toward Destruction or Life
I think there should be several things not allowed.

1) Excessively profane language
2) Coercion of believes
3) Personal attack
4) Any proponent position toward things that are completely contrary to Scripture such as witchcraft, homosexuality, new age, etc. In a simple way, the support for plainly wicked things should not be allowed.

Censorship should only be exercised in the most extreme and unrepentant cases. I would personally like to never have to use it.
