Now if you talk to narrow gaters, you find they possess a curious sense of peace and tranquility that passes all understanding. I have had so many board roaders look and me and say, “Ed, chill out. Let your hair down, man. Do you realize how good it is over here? Just cool out. Please, Ed, please.” The board roaders mean well but they don’t know what is really happening. They don’t know what is inevitable. It could happen suddenly, it could happen gradually, but it always happens to the broad roaders.
Now I want to talk about two contrasting results that Jesus talked about. One result is destruction, for those on the broad road. The other result is life, for those on the narrow road. You see, the broad roaders get surprised. I call this the reverse surprise of the two different roads. On the broad road you are just having a good time. You say that everybody gets high. But after awhile the highs can become addictive on the broad road. Then you sing, everybody gets low. On the broad road the lows can lead to depression.
