HOW NARROW is the way to heaven if ONLY 2.5% of people were going through it 44 years ago, before the internet and even before “once saved always saved” or “only believe” was being taught in almost all churches — the situation today?
Jesus said: “Enter in by the *NARROW GATE*; for WIDE is the GATE and BROAD is the way that leads to DESTRUCTION, and MANY are those who enter in by it. How NARROW is the GATE, and RESTRICTED is the way that leads to life! FEW are those who find it.
In 1979, a Baptist pastor, Howard Pittman actually DIED on his way to the hospital, and was told at the gates of heaven that only 2.5% of the people in the world were entering heaven.
“Judaism was my childhood religion in practice and learning, all my social groups were Jewish, my role models were Jewish, my best friends were Jewish, everything pointed to me being Jewish, including my face and habits.”
“There’s a study that I found pretty exciting. They said the part of your brain that you get anxiety from is the same part of your brain that has gratitude.
You can’t be grateful and anxious at the same time. So then in the Bible, where it goes: instead of being anxious, be grateful, it’s so crazy to think that they were calling out legitimate things that scientists have found out.”
I definitely don’t agree with Michael Brown on ‘Christian’ Zionism*, and he’s been too loose on salvation. But this is mostly good, after he gets going. My first comment below corrects one thing he said.
Michael Brown starts this statement by quoting Romans 6:1-2:
“‘What shall we say then, SHALL WE GO ON SINNING so that grace may increase? BY NO MEANS! We died to sin. HOW CAN WE LIVE IN IT ANY LONGER?’
OH! THIS IS A SPIRITUAL REALITY. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A SLAVE TO SIN. In Jesus, you don’t have to be a slave to sin. It’s a lie. It’s a lie that your mind is telling you. It’s a lie that church tradition has told you. It’s a lie that the world tells you. It’s a lie that the Devil himself tells you. In Jesus, you know longer have to be a slave to sin.”

1:21:30 Jordan Peterson: the necessity of following our conscience
1:26:32 Chris Anthony Lunsford (Oliver Anthony) reads Matthew 22:36-39, saying:
“A Pharisee asks Jesus…
“..which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
If we could learn to make those two commandments… our priority, and then base our differences below that. God is here (hands high), our love for each other here (hands lower), and then below that is try to find a way to integrate our differences in a way that everyone can live a better life. It would resolve a lot of the conflicts….”
1:49:30 Lunsford (Anthony) “There has to be something pure and honest and righteous at the top of our focus, collectively to maintain that.” What Jordan Peterson just described.
Jordan B. Peterson and breakout musician Chris Lunsford, better known by his stage name Oliver Anthony, discuss the balance between vision and efficiency in artistic and commercial endeavors, why Chris’ hit song “Rich Men North of Richmond,” has resonated so broadly and so quickly, the way honest expression through music can combat demoralization, how politics have become confused with the sacred, and what we can do to restore each to their proper order.
TIMING: President Trump is being hunted down by the left, and risks being jailed so he can’t even run in 2024.
SETTING: As is often the case in dreams, my car was different than in real life, and the location was unfamiliar.
THE DREAM: I was standing next to the right side of my car, parked on the street, and President Trump pulled up in a regular car, by himself (no security). He was so interested in what was in my car that he pulled up so close that his bumper almost touched mine. I warned him, so he wouldn’t hit it, and then smiled after he stopped, holding up my thumb and forefinger about 1/8 inch apart.
