Discussion for Luke 18

  • Bruce
    Irene: The Lord used a needle as an example. again there has never been a gate called as such,never has been.the only thing I found was a rope or twine made from camels hair. Impossible to past threw the eye of a needle. This is about salvation! A rich man cannot enter in. Impossibly! That's why they said who then can be saved? Only those redeemed by the blood of the lamb. Revelations 5:9
  • A disciple
    The Parable of the Unjust Judge is a great lesson for Christians to understand just how much the Lord Himself is disgusted with and cannot stand the wicked and their works. Notice how the Lord says, "Hear what the unjust judge says! and shall not God avenge His own Elect, which cry day and night unto Him; though He bear long time WITH THEM?" Are you suffering grief and trial? He bears it with you!

    To Bruce - I'm just curious, why is the small gate so important to you that you would 'correct' what I said? The gate has nothing to do with salvation; Jesus just used it as an example.
  • Bruce
    Irene:There is no such gate with that title,never has been. This cute story that started years back.V:26--- who then can be saved? They know it is impossible,that's why they said who then can be saved? There is only One way! The of Blood of The Lamb! Without His Sacrifice we would be doomed. Hebrews 10:12--- offered one sacrifice for sins forever---; 1John1:9, 2Corinthians 5:17
  • Irene123
    To Daniel - you did know the 'eye of a needle' was the small gate/door off to the side of the large one? the 'needle' was for people on foot, while the large one was for commercial vehicles, camels, etc.
  • Daniel
    The possibility of a rich man entering heaven is likened to a camel entering a needle. As we pursue our earthly treasures, let us keep in mind the fact that the kingdom of Christ should be above everything.
