The bible always speaks of the path to God as narrow. The only way to the Father is to go through his Son Jesus.
Often the world demands that the way be broad. We do not like the narrowness of the Christian faith.
Always we want to have religion on our own terms. We do not like the terms which God presents.
But the terms are not ours to choose but Gods. And we sit in rebellion against God when we wish to tell him the terms on which we should be able to relate to him.
