    Strive to enter in at the straight gate. God does not bend his rules for us. When we keep God's commandments, and ask for things, he knows how to reward the righteous. He keeps his promises. Inwardly search your heart and see if what we do is acceptable to God. Judge yourself by the standards of Jesus. He is our perfect example, and he leads us to our Father in heaven. God wants saints.
    I think no matter who you are or where you came from, GOD forgives through the blood shed of Jesus Christ. Some of us gets so high and mighty that we forget that GOD has blessed us to get there and no matter what you should always treat people with respect.

    Verse 4 shows the importance of making sure that we work on our own imperfections before being quick to point out the imperfections of others.

    You are right there is a difference from a True Believer in Christ and a Sinner for when we become one with God we are made whole. A non-believer sinner does not reap the benefits of God which is giving on to us which is the main reason we are to become one with God and that is to have ETERNAL LIFE with him for as We Know the only prayer God heareth from a sinner is the sinner's prayer..REPENT!!

    I love this whole chapter. Mathew tells it like it is. I love Jesus and know by his stripes we are healed. Yes the gate is narrow but I know I love him because he loved me first. I thank God he sent his only begotten son. I have experienced many miracles and feel he is with me now. He loves us and I pray that everyone could know his love .Jesus will save you no matter how low you are just ask.

    Most people, Christian or not, have difficulty with this and many other things in the Bible. The reason for this is because we are all human and all very flawed. It's difficult for nonbelievers to believe because Christians are human and flawed. We are all on this same journey together

    Disbeliever: What did you say to them...and how did they respond? Perhaps they were the self professing “Christians” of vs 23 that Christ “never knew”.

    never pass judgement without cause, do not make false judgement,if you preach make sure it's to the word
  • Disbeliever
    Too bad too many "christians" I've met don't follow this "wise" doctrine.

    Reading, Studying with Prayer and Telling Others The Way of Salvation Will Keep You Off The Path of Sin(2Timothy 2:4) No One Comes to Christ Until The Father Calls (John 6:44) Ask Forgiveness(1John 1:9) We Will be Washed in His Blood (Revelation 1:5) We are Now Clean Enough for The Holy Ghost( Mark 1:8) The Evidence is that You're Ccompletely Changed(2Corinthians 2:5-17) You Know Impossible Not to

    The only way man can stay on the straight and narrow path is for him to repent of all his sins with sincerity. When God has judged man sincere, He will Baptize man with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of his prayer language. Man must pray in his sustenant prayer language to know what God's will is for his life. Man must submit to the Holy Spirit by giving up his sins. 100 reliance on the God.

    chapter 6-7, Jesus teaches us many very-important 'Heavenly-Things' and 'earthly-things'; The Heavenly is for the SAVED (eternity with GOD) and the 'earthly-things' is for living life /birth-death on earth with men /women. Jesus mention several times of the HIS PLACE men call HEAVEN; also HE put 'great' inferences on entering HEAVEN. Every body wants to go to HEAVEN...

    Stan: We are to Show The Lost The Way of Salvation. Very Few will Listen and Want More. Most Will Reject Anything You Say. If They Make Fun, Curse or Say Evil Things About Salvation, Christ, You etc. Never Tell Them Again. You May not Know How They Will React Until You Talk to Them The First Time. If They Ask You Later How to be Saved, Tell Them. If It's Just to Make Jokes. Walk Away

    Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

    What does that verse mean? If dogs and swine means unbelivers, are we not suppose to testity to them?
  • Taylor
    2Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
    I know its hard to not do this when making comments, but there is a lot of private interpretation here.
  • Charles

    17-9 replacement theology is a satanic lie GOD is not finished with
    the jews. repent or you will be left behind.

    2Tim 3:16 all scripture is God breathed yet we must do as it says to get the answers right, did you every think what Jesus was saying when He said I never Knew you ? depart from me, as Adam knew Eve a baby came to be ! are you with child (Holy Spirit) have you known Jesus ? or are you just playing some man made game called church ? After you are married to Jesus then you can go to work !

    The way of destruction is broad, and many go in there at. The way of life, that gate is narrow, and few that be saved. So, brothers in arms, do not assume you are saved. You will be mistaken, for God be the arbiter of such things. Jesus, when he walked amoungst us, had power, but now resides in Heaven. Those who wait upon aome rapture, well, you have a long wait. Turn to God and His word.
  • Sheba
    Turn your eyes inward and look deep inside yourself. Are you doing the will of God? Are you living according to God's commandments? Follow the golden rule, Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Jesus said the second commandment is to Love one another. On this hangs all the law. It takes godly wisdom to know how we are to live righteously and sin no more.

    Servant, Read this chapter again very careful. Verse 20 said we shall know them by their fruits. The thief on the cross REPENTED, Jesus said so. But the other one didn’t.
  • Servant of the most high God
    Romans 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgement seat of Christ. John 5:22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgement unto the Son. !!!All!!!
  • Servant of the most high God
    John chapter 5 verse 22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath commited all judgement unto the Son. how is it we ignore this verse All judgement All
  • Servant of the most high God
    out the mote out of thy brothers eye. End of verse 5 ran out of room Jesus is clearly saying dont even be a hypocrite by pointing out someones sin when your commiting the very same one often, but rather with Jesus help when you have over come a sin then you can see clearly to help others overcome that certain sin with The Lord Jesus Christ helping you help them.
  • Servant of the most high God
    Ok first of all The Lord Jesus Christ is the Judge He said judge not and if you havent overcame the sin your pointing out to someone else with Jesus help the beam in your eye you should not point out the mote in there eye the sin you see in there life . Otherwise as Jesus said thou hypocrite, verse 5 first cast out the beam out of thine own eye and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out

    Jesus is my everything that I need and He is my life without him I am nothing. Meditating Gods words and obedience to his words are more important than sacrifice praise you Lord Jesus forever for you are worthy amen hallelujah

    Lack of church discipline is a byproduct of false teaching in my humble experience. My estranged husband was sucked in deeply to false teaching and try as I did, he rejected my efforts to help him discern and to snatch him out. I wouldn't follow as he tried to lead me astray.I stood my ground whilst all manner of strange things were being taught and were going on at the new church he took me to and gosh I didn't go down well. Eventually he had an affair with a female member at the church and others there were actually trying to justify it calling me "difficult". In my bible it says "contend for the Truth"..I pray for him regularly and know that nothing is impossible with God but he's unteachable and won't I continue my walk alone. The ramifications of false teaching are alarming to say the least.Put on the full armour.The enemy has no new tricks and God has provided the instructions for what is needed to equip us in the battle. Test everything.Stand firm. Our Commander has already won the war. How reassuring is that. God bless.

    Just spent a very worthwhile hour listening to the sermon "True marks of the Spirit" Dr.Martyn Lloyd Jones..spiritual guidance from a true man of God.

    one path is wide most will follow that, then choose the narrow path which is less traveled, many will knock few will enter the kingdom. I see preachers today saying sinning is ok as long as you have received Christ's as your saviour, and then you read this, it's hard today to live free from corruptions, seek daily for wisdom in the word and hand things over to the Lord, trust in God, Amen
