Narrow Road Infrastructure

conscientious-ness insights Joan Winifred trust Truth wisdom

Thinking (or trying to think while being interrupted) while traveling through life…(and don’t want this post getting off road a bit aka off topic;) will try my best to stay on track, yeah, right!:))…

Roads and destinations and GPS… Truth, specifically, Biblical truth keeps us (IF we follow it/obey/adhere) on a narrow road leading to LIFE, real, never-ending life…eventually sans sicknesses. Our lives improve along the way during this spiritual process/mind-body work.

For me, personally, the Bible has always been my guide/map…where to go? Is sometimes the same question as: what to do?! Or how to act?! and why?/why not?…in any given place/circumstance/situation (simple or complex)/scenario i find myself.

Jesus as leader leading… “The way, (The Truth, and The Life”)…

“Jesus said to him: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

I am the way and the truth and the life: Jesus is the way because it is only through him that it is possible to approach God in prayer. He is also “the way” for humans to be reconciled to God. (Joh 16:23; Ro 5:8) Jesus is the truth in that he spoke and lived in harmony with truth. He also fulfilled scores of prophecies that show his central role in the outworking of God’s purpose. (Joh 1:14; Re 19:10) These prophecies became “‘yes’ [or were fulfilled] by means of him.” (2Co 1:20) Jesus is the life because by means of the ransom, he made it possible for mankind to gain “the real life,” that is, “everlasting life.” (1Ti 6:12,19; Eph 1:7; 1Jo 1:7) He will also prove to be “the life” for millions who will be resurrected with the prospect of living in Paradise forever.—Joh 5:28, 29. [New World Translation Study Bible: Gems excerpted]

i prefer, personally speaking, the New World Translation Revised 2013…for its readability, modern language, accuracy, etc.  Plus, the fact it’s a trustworthy translation…and has NOT omitted/taken away/minused (and on purpose like other translation(s)) The Creator’s/Almighty God’s personal name, Yahweh.  The Tetragramatton appears almost 7,000 times in the original Hebrew manuscripts…(just makes me wonder/question how any supposedly skilled translator(s) misses (a) mark(s)/something 7,000 times??! what else?? of importance did some so-called translators/translations leave out??! and why??!) Some further reading on the Divine Name and Greek Scriptures.
“Language grows old and unintelligible, therefore it’s necessary to review old Translations to make them speak the Language in use, and be understood by the living generation.”  (John Lewis, 18th Century English Cleric)
People, this is 2018, our language has changed, duh!;)  It makes sense to get acquainted with and read a modern language translation. Truth is progressive!  Please check it out IF You:) so choose…further reading(s) about bible-versions-translations

Okay, guess, am going off road a little?…

{Contemplating about: how all of us are flawed (myself very much included;)) …most of us are trying to get somewhere (including Bible translators, eh?)…work, home, vaca, peace, security, stability…ahead?…(we have our personal/private “reasons” aka “motivations” of why) and may be? how we will get where we wanna go and when…so, in my POV, a flawed wo/man’s philosophy is may be?  attempt(s) at self-justification…an arrogant exercise in excusing ourselves…in few or many words convoluted or concise…as to why we do or how to do and get away with it…to get where we wanna go?!  Some abandon authority (including God) altogether…aka not answering to anyone to get what they want where/when they want whatever.}

Jesus as genius…(a human term)…a VERY Intelligent Divine Dude🙂…wonder how to measure His IQ??…hmmm, i.e., his 20 minute(s) Sermon on the Mount defies (the) time (target). “Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see.” ~Arthur Schopenhauer

Talk about time well-spent (here/now and then aka present, future)…management…how humans should travel (in/through life) (through time)…and space…safely as possible and as compassionately/lovingly/peacefully as possible! His spiritual and practical teachings/superlative example as a whole — timelessness!!

Jesus, concerned about living/travelling Truth (through time)…said at Matthew 7:

13  “Go in through the narrow gate, because broad is the gate and spacious is the road leading off into destruction, and many are going in through it; 14  whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are finding it.

Go in through the narrow gate: In ancient times, roadways with gates were the means of entry into walled cities. The Bible uses such expressions as road or “path” or “way” to describe people’s life course and conduct. The image of two contrasting roads pictures life courses that are either approved or disapproved by God, determining whether an individual gains entry into God’s Kingdom.​—Ps 1:1, 6; Jer 21:8; Mt 7:21.

broad is the gate and spacious is the road: Although some manuscripts read “broad and spacious is the road,” the longer reading has strong manuscript support and harmonizes with the parallelism at Mt 7:14.​—See App. A3. [excerpted New World Translation Study Bible: Gems]

Living Truth means a cramped road…(few find).

(fy: i am brain-fried here-lol 😉
