The conclusion to the Sermon on the Mount contains two commands:
Matthew 7:13: Enter through the narrow gate Matthew 7:15: Beware of the false prophets
These scary words from Jesus leave no room for doubt that He demands of every person a decision about Him. It's a binary decision: Accept or reject, believe or ignore, heaven or hell, one way or the other. There is no middle ground. There are many voices that proclaim false messages about the way to heaven. Today we see the final descriptions of the importance of entering through the narrow gate and learning to beware of the false prophets.
