(Matt 7:13-14 KJV) says “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
I think the scriptures make it clear; the general nature of man is the nature of sin. Thus, if he/she desires to be changed they must move from being a natural man to a spiritual man. Spiritual man being defined as one who has a relationship with God to the degree that they obey God’s word, not simply when it’s convenient for them to obey but even when it hurts they obey because that’s what God requires. However, everybody that believes that they are heaven bound are lying to themselves because the scripture makes it clear that only a few truly walk that straight and narrow path, thus true Christianity calls for real sacrifice and commitment, and not many people are willing to pay the price. Before you automatically assume that you have made it be honest with yourself and with God about where you truly are, because it’s in the truth of God’s word where we really begin to see what we look like to God.
