Many will never accept the truth in fact they are likely to distort and change it to suit their needs. They will even try to destroy your belief system and your faith. Then there are those who choose to trample on the truth and defile it. Do we think we can change their minds with the truth? Will the seed ever take root?   When they proclaim things like Jesus and the Church are man made ideologies to fulfill self serving interests. Or no one has the right to oppose same sex marriages as they go against the individual’s right to happiness. It’s a woman’s own body and so she has the right to choose whatever she wants to do with it and no one has even the right to voice alternatives if she so decides to go with an abortion. Gender change is every individual’s right and it goes against human dignity to force them to live out a particular gender.  Condoms save lives! especially against sexually transmitted diseases. How can you sit there like a doormat and allow them to walk all over you? You must show them what you are made of! You must sue! You must teach them a lesson they will never forget!

It is by far easier to choose the wider and broad road of the world where the invitation to join the masses are always appealing. It doesn’t even seem to matter that this very road ahead is cloaked in hazy darkness and eventually will lead us to destruction.

Jesus reminds us today that the road to peace, love, happiness and life is by way of Him; the Truth and the light. Let us choose the narrow path and lead others towards it. Amen

GOSPEL Matthew 7:6, 12–14

Jesus said to his disciples:“Do not give what is holy to dogs, or throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them underfoot, and turn and tear you to pieces. “Do to others whatever you would have them do to you. This is the Law and the Prophets. “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.”
