Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. — Matthew 7:14

  1. Hi miss Margaret, thank you for posting this verse.

    Look how modern bible versions change the whole meaning of this verse…

    1. I pasted these verses from one of my articles, and for some reason, the words “is difficult” and “is hard” got mashed together.

      (And ironically, those words are the additions that modern bible versions have added to change the message of this verse).
