Narrow Gate
 
What we truly love, no matter what
will, in the end,
demand everything,
there is always a narrow gate
to pass through-Br.MD

Is that the same thing as passing through the eye of the needle by a camel? Narrow gate, or narrow mind? Come my friend, does the Catholic church look anything like the original Jesus? Be honest with yourself! Monks, friars, and true mystics excluded! Real saints too, but not man-made ones! Mother Teresa types also excluded, come to think of it.

Have any faith and hope in Jesus' second coming? Do you know anything about fig trees?

We are in dire straits. I need someone to talk to! A brother in arms for the war of worlds; this one and the one to come.....Armageddon! Jesus loves music too, as to live in peace one needs harmony.

To sin means to miss the mark.  Is there any surprise that we are in the shape we are in?  In any case, I believe that one needs
to judge any group, religion, etc, on the best, not the worst.  What mars a masterpiece, stands out over the beauty in the
background.

Yes we are in dire straits.  The book of revelation, as hard as it is to understand, seems to point that out pretty clearly.

Yet, we live in hope, and continue on our way. 

Peace

The best are the elect. And for their sake all will not be lost. Now, who are these elect that are present during the time of tribulation? They must be the guardians of the true faith, and laws. They are not part of the mass of hypocrites who go by the name of Christians, especially those wolves in sheep's clothing who teach and preach contrary to the essence of the message that Christ, the last messenger sent by His Father, God. Christianity is a name that Jesus Christ would never approve, because what has happened is that we have glorified the messenger, and killed off God the Father. The teaching of Jesus has been bastardized to the point that it has no basis on the essence of the One who sent the messages, through the prophets. These messengers were stoned or killed by those who had received the message. Jesus was also killed for bringing the message.

The parable of the vineyard given by Jesus Himself clearly puts it down.

The Parable of the Wicked Tenants

(Matt 21:)

33Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country: 34And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. 35And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. 36Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise. 37But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. 38But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. 39And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. 40When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? 41They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

42Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

The Muses do inspire all artists, through a long chain of magnetism. The Bible too, through inspiration, to then pass it down one link to another artist, Bob Dylan.

The Businessmen are wealthy, and some are downright filthy rich. They don't feed the poor with all they have, and some have dozens of billions. O sure, they make a show for the IRS to see, and so they give to charity just enough, a token, even if 100 million or so, yearly. Surely they are no poor widows, who give to charity only two copper coins; but which is all they have. The poor widow is last here, but will be first up there. The wealthy, and powerful politicians and religious leaders are first here, but will be last up there. Because they will need further and more powerful purification of their souls, and will go down there for another 1,000 years, a journey I pity for them. A few incurable souls will be beyond pity, as they will remain down there, as examples to other pilgrims making their last 1k journey. The Millennium of Revelation.

And thus, Glaucon, the tale has been saved and has not perished, and will
save us if we are obedient to the word spoken; and we shall pass safely over the
river of Forgetfulness and our soul will not be defiled. Wherefore my counsel is
that we hold fast ever to the heavenly way and follow after justice and virtue
always, considering that the soul is immortal and able to endure every sort of
good and every sort of evil. Thus shall we live dear to one another and to the
gods, both while remaining here and when, like conquerors in the games who
go round to gather gifts, we receive our reward. And it shall be well with us
both in this life and in the pilgrimage of a thousand years which we have been
describing.

We can't enter into the inner sanctuary of others.  Nor do we know the direction that they are going in.  The world is full of examples of the conversion
of those that from the outside were not of the 'elect'.  The Pharisees, Scribes, and Sadducees, knew who the elect were, and it would seem that
they were mistaken.  We are told not to judge on that level. of the soul.  Your points are well taken as usual, yet we need to pray for all of mankind.  There
is a prayer we say between decades, it goes like this.

Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy.

That is enough for me, I leave it up God, and try to reach others the best way I can.
