God Thinking XVII - All Paths Do Not Lead To God 6

"Jesus was talking to Paul, who had been persecuting the Church.  Acts 26:16-18

“But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; V17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, V18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in Me.”
Paul was on the broad path.  He had stopped at one of the stations called “RELIGIOUS PIETY”.  Then he met Jesus in the road and turned the other way and he was told to turn  others from darkness to light, from satan unto God, (from the broad path to the narrow path, from one direction to another.)

You must get it right.  The path that leads to eternal life with God is in the opposite direction of the path that leads to destruction.

God designed it this way - to assure the believer that they would know when they were on the right path.  It would be narrow - few will find it - and it goes in the opposite direction of the world."
