Notes: From the papers of Dr. Gordon H. Clark from The Home Evangel.
The increase in gasoline rations may permit some families to drive to near-by points for a short vacation. Next summer, if rationing is ended, people will be traveling great distances in many directions.
It will make little difference which road they take. Although many roads go more or less directly to the same distant place, one may be shorter while another may be a four-lane highway. And of course, not all roads go to the same place. There are many ways of going wrong.
Similarly also in our religious activity: there are many ways of going wrong. Some people thoughtlessly say that everybody is going to the same place, even though on different roads. But not all roads lead to Heaven. In fact, there is only one way to Heaven. Jesus Christ said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no man cometh unto the Father but by Me.” Salvation from sin and from its penalty, and entrance into Heaven are possible only through the Lord Jesus Christ, who lived without sin, suffered the penalty of our sin, and rose from the dead to open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers. Are you relying on this way, the only Way to Heaven? He is the straight gate and the narrow way which leadeth unto life. “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.” (Matthew 7:13, 14).
