The warning about a way that appears to be right, that leads to death in the end

Posted by admin on 26 July 2020 in 2 Timothy, Galatians, John, Matthew, Proverbs |

12 There is a way that appears to be right,

but in the end it leads to death. (Proverbs 14:12, Proverbs 16:25)

This warning may be applied to those who live according to

  • their commonsense
  • their pseudo philosophy
  • their religion

without the basis of the Holy Bible.

The Holy Bible is able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. See 2 Timothy 3:15-16.

15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

In Matthew 7:13-14 and John 12:24-25 Jesus teaches the way that leads to life.

13 ‘Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. (Matthew 7:13-14)

24 Very truly I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. 25 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. (John 12:24-25)

Also, Galatians 6:7-10 says,

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
