“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.” (Matt. 7:13-14)
“It is better to go to heaven with the few. Than to hell in the crowd! We must walk in an opposite course to the people of the world.”
