Why This Businessman Says ‘The Narrow Way’ Involves More Than Just Accepting Christ

by | May 4, 2020 | Apologetics, Evangelism

Businessman and Bible teacher Don Britton has a commitment to speak the biblical truth and root out the deception he says is so common in the American church today. In a recent episode of The Great Deception podcast, he tackles the rapture and then goes on to combat the companion belief that says Christians will not endure suffering.

Many others teach, he says, “that we as Christians are not going to suffer any tribulation or trouble. We’ve heard that before … that Jesus did all the suffering for us on His cross. But is that what the Bible really says?” Britton asks. He quotes Matthew 10:37-39, which says, “He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me. And he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he who does not take up his cross, and follow after me, is not worthy of me. He who has found his life shall lose it and he who is lost his life, for my sake, shall find it.” He also quotes Matthew 7:13-14, “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction. And many are those who enter by it, for the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life and fear those who find it.”

“So here in the Scriptures, we’re told that the narrow way and the small gate are the only way to life,” Britton says. He points to the definitions of two different Greek words, one for “narrow” and one for “small.” “They’re very similar in meaning, but they’re two different words. … They mean tribulation, they mean suffering, anguish, trouble, difficulty, pain, hardship and so forth,” he says.

“That’s the way to live. You’re not going to go to life the easy, broad way … the way almost everybody’s going; it’s the easy believeism that Jesus did everything for you,” Britton explains. “Just accept Christ, pray the sinner’s prayer, all that falsehood, but there’s no cross involved. There’s no personal giving up of one’s life involved here. So this is the opposite of what we’re being taught.”
