Sign in State Park where it is evident that many stray into unmarked trails!
If only folks understood that Jesus was not kidding:
"13 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:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." (Sermon on the Mount)
Many opt for a hefty health insurance instead of striving to follow the Sermon on the Mount in daily life. It offers an easier way that does not require self-examination, self-immolation, and making unpopular choices in day-to-day living. However, the discipline of Christ empowers man, frees him from anxiety, and cultivates an inner peace that passes all understanding!
NOTE: The Sermon on the Mount addresses the heart and mind - it is not a rule book of dos and donts. This is why no human institution, no church organization, can enforce it. It is entirely the responsibility of the individual to cultivate his relationship with his Maker, Spirit. Noone else can keep him on the straight and narrow. This is the Science of Christianity, not creed and profession.
"It is the spiritualization of thought and Christianization
of daily life, in contrast with the results of the ghastly farce
of material existence; it is chastity and purity,
in contrast with the downward tendencies
and earthward gravitation of sensualism and impurity,
which really attest the divine origin and operation of Chris-
tian Science." (S&H)
