Re: Going A Different Way

You're just out of date,
   said young pastor Bate
To one of our faithful old preachers
   Who had carried for years
   in travail and tears
The gospel to poor sinful creatures.
   You still preach on Hades,
   and shock cultured ladies
With your barbarous doctrine of blood!
   You're so far behind
   you will never catch up-
You're a flat tire stuck in the mud!"

For some little while, a bit of a smile
   Enlightened the old preacher's face.
Being made the butt of ridicule's cut
   Did not ruffle his sweetness and grace.
Then he turned to young Bate,
   so suave and sedate.
Catch up, did my ears hear you say?
   Why, I couldn't succeed
   if I doubled my speed,
My friend, I'm not going your way!     (Author unknown)

"Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. (Mat 7:13-14)

Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord..." and then I will declare to them, "I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!"(Mat7:22-23)

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.(2Tim4:7-8)
