Why, Yes, I Am Narrow Minded
John 14:6 (KJB) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Those who do not believe in Christ might refer to such verses, God-centered minds, and ministries honoring God as narrowminded and constricted. Why, yes, thank you, we certainly do resemble such a world based characterization of our God-honoring interests and intentions and in pointing to the one pathway available in this world to personally God through knowing His Son Jesus Christ.
Truly, yes, a sincere professing Christian has narrowed his outlook and outreach to reflect the nature and character of God rather than be a blaring billboard for the wicked nature and intent of the god of this world.
The only way to personally know God is undoubtedly narrow but never restrictive or limiting. It is only when traveling on this grace-filled pathway that a person can know God and choose to identify with Him. He or she can find liberty and life lasting forever in spiritual agreement with God about the nature of sin and death working in this world.
Jesus Christ is the only way to God, spiritual liberty, and living forever. Grace Avenue is not restrictive but filled to overflowing with life, liberty, and the richness of His spiritual polish which shines forever. Only a narrow mind and a grace-filled heart can lead a regenerated soul to eternal life.
