TWO ROADS

TEXT: MATT. 7:13,14

INTRODUCTION: Way = Road

These two roads lead to two very different destinations;

One to Life, one to Destruction.

One road is Broad, Narrow

Wide Gate, Straight Gate

Many are on the road to Destruction, few on the road to Life.

A narrow road has only one lane, while a broad road has many.

There are many dangers on the broad road. People are killed on the road in many different ways.

Let’s look at these two roads, starting with the

I. BROAD ROAD

This is the dangerous road, this road has many lanes THAT LEAD TO DESTRUCTION.

A. The Foggy Lane

This is the lane the ATHEIST ride in.

Ever driven in fog so thick that you couldn’t tell where the road was? You can’t even tell if there is a road in front of you?

Atheist eyes are so fogged over that they don’t know they are on the road to destruction.

GET GLOBE (Tell congregation, “One day I heard a bang outside and found this globe.” Go on with it and then tell how ridiculous it is to believe the earth and universe came about by a Big Bang.)

They don’t believe in God because they don’t want to answer to Him.

Romans 1:21-23

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. [22] Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, [23] And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Romans 1:28

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Psa 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.

Psa 59:7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear?

Psa 59:8 But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision. Derision = As if imitating a foreigner, Mocking. They are foreign to God, they say, “I don’t know any God.” God will say, “I never knew you depart from me ye that work iniquity.” Matt.7:23

But it doesn’t matter how much they deny that fact that God exists. All they need to do is look at creation to see that there is a Creator.

Psa 19:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork.

Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them.

Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Look at space. Out there are distances so vast that it takes a special unit of measure to express those concepts. The astronomer’s yardstick is a light year: the distance light travels in one year. At 186,273 miles per second which is the equivalent of encircling the earth at the equator seven and a half times. In round numbers light travels about six trillion miles in a year.

Our sun, by that yardstick is eight light minutes away. But out there in space are suns and stars believed to be billions of light years away. And we can’t even count the stars or guess how many billions there are. God said to Abraham; Gen 15:5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them:

Some stars are so large that we can’t comprehend it. The star Antares, for instance, could hold sixty-four million suns the size of ours. In the constellation Hercules is a star that could contain one hundred million stars the size of Antares. Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is 100,000 light years in diameter. It is revolving at a speed of two hundred miles an hour. It takes two million years to complete one revolution on its axis.

Now lets look at the other spectrum of creation, the world of the infinitely small. The building block of the universe is the atom, which is so small that each one is less that one hundred fifty millionth of an inch in diameter. If the molecules of a single drop of water could be converted into grains of sand, there would be enough sand to build a concrete highway half a mile wide and one foot thick all the way from New York to San Francisco.
