Mat 6. 20 – 21

“But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and

where thieves do not break through nor steal:

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

“We are destined eternally

to spend eternity where our treasures are.”

What is the reason you are rejecting the Narrow Way? (Have you yet admitted to yourself that you are leaving it?) “Everyone else is doing it.” Are you so lacking in will power you can’t stand alone? “It is easier on the Broadway.” Now and NOW only – look ahead poor soul. “It is fun going the worldly way.”

Fun is shallow and cheap – the Joy of the Lord surpasses all fun and lasts forever!

Many a soul has started down God’s road,

After knowing the joy of a lifted load.

They had a smile only heaven could paint,

But, oh, something changed; they grew faint.


What caused them to turn from the pierced side?

What renewed their carnal, controlling pride?

Only the judgment will truly, fully reveal

Why they lost out in happy, holy zeal.


Attitudes mean so much in soul and mind,

Ones they grew up with or later find.

Negative attitudes toward a certain stand,

Acceptance of things on the “left” hand.


Education has often pulled men down,

They hated to have the professor’s bad frown,

They wanted to be thought of as quite smart,

Chose secular training, let Christ depart.


Illusions have caused backsliding as well,

Illusions aren’t real – but they seem to tell    

A truth when they are, sadly, a stinking lie,

Some believe illusions and inwardly die.


Omissions are also weak excuses to fail,

Someone left them sidetracked along life’s trail,

They saw (thought they saw?) they were left out.

Joyful walking with Jesus doesn’t go with a pout.


Understandings may contribute to sliding a soul back,

Their idea was wrong, understanding was off track.

Oh, the excuses satan uses to bring down a heart,

Slipping, sliding, they from God’s holy way depart.

To insist on using words,

terms (2 or more linked words), ideas, rituals, dress, &/or symbols from the pre-Christ era is to try to ignore our Lord Jesus Christ.  It is an attempt to marginalize Him, make Him of little-to-no consequence.  (Ignore Him at your eternal soul’s peril – He is not going away – in fact He’s coming again.)  The above action is anti-christ.  It is sin.  Friend, go no further down this religious but deceitful path but RUN back to the New Testament.

Quit trying to be more spiritual than the NT.
