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.
The Holy Word of God tells us, wide and broad, is the way to hell, then it tells us, strait is the gate and narrow is the way to heaven and eternal life and few there be that find it.
When our worldly churches declare salvation to be a 'Simple Plan' they are excluding essentials our just Judge won't be happy about. One is taking up your personal cross and following Jesus through the fires of holiness. Those who have traveled this unnatural highway to holiness would assure all it's not simple. However what is simple is the wide and 'natural highway' to hell.
The Scripture above tells us if we choose the broad or simple way we are lost but if we choose the opposite, the difficult way, we have then chosen the way which leads us unto life. This is a parable and the silent or hidden message here is holiness. If you choose Jesus, you choose holiness, if you choose unholiness, you choose death. TRUTH: mankind chooses unholiness because they are bogged down in sin or they are bogged down in unbelief or they adhere to the unholy word of a man over the Holy Word of God. The word of God vs the word of man. It is a thin line between these culprits of deception but then again, whatever cost you your soul matters not. Matters not the rationale, the rhetoric, the tricks, our holy God and sin will never, never mix!
SANCTIFY YOURSELVES AND BE HOLY!
Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God.
The simple plan, or the broad way, excludes Leviticus 20:7.
Neither of these clichés are Scripture; simple plan of salvation, and/or accept Jesus as your personal Savior. (for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able). Jesus Christ is the acceptor ... not unholy man!
Nothing is more natural, easy, and normal than going to hell and nothing is more unnatural, hard, and abnormal than going to heaven, let alone becoming an heir. The simple message or purpose of the worldly church should read;
THE SIMPLE PLAN OF GOING TO HELL
Accept the Worldly Church as your Personal Authority
CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY YOUR AUTHORITY!
The Meat of the Gospel or the Poisoned Baloney of the Worldly Church.
The Good News of the Gospel is Good News for the spirit, terrible, terrible news for the flesh!
