    That the text says this does not prove that it happened. Luke can write down whatever he wants... I can write down whatever I want. We can all write down whatever we want... doesn't make it "true." You would need sufficient demonstration of the truth of these claims... otherwise I find no good reason to believe them.

    True, Jesus did say " Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it." Matthew 7:13

    Yet, clearly since all wisdom, truth, power, light, life and love dwell in Jesus He Himself is not narrow, simply caring and exclusive enough to desire us to reach the true SOURCE among the multitude of confusion and lies.

    Well, the scriptures say Jesus draws all people to Himself and His light is revealed to all in the world, so whether it is a failure to discern or a refusal is more likely the question.

    ah.....the point of decision

    hear the parables.....decide what they mean
    THEN
    decide to follow or not

    of course....having made a choice
    the line drawn
    your path narrows quite a bit

    All of them in one way or another
    Kind of like an apex being an omnipotent existence; per say.
