The Broad Road

Something stands out from The Practical Commentary on Holy Scripture. They point out that the road to Heaven is a narrow way–it has limits. It’s defined. It’s disciplined. The road to hell is broad, loose, lax, like a river with no banks.

That ties into the whole idea that limits are freeing, that discipline orders things to their proper end & keeps them from being destructive.

Perhaps another way of saying it would be to call the way to hell a trackless waste in which you can wander forever without actually getting anywhere. It’s the result of letting the fire out of the fireplace, of leaving the road. It’s called being lost.
