Christians - Few

Bible Questions Answered:
“...christianity I hear is diminishing in numbers, it sure can't be any good...”
Corby/ Southampton, England United Kingdom

Bible Answer:
Bible Texts:

Question: Where is it written that Christianity will be a leading spiritual force in the world? 
Answer, Nowhere, how on the contrary, our Lord told us...

Matthew 7:13,14 KJV
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Matthew 7:13,14 NLT
13 “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way.
14 But the gateway to Life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.

Seven Reasons Why Christianity Will Never Be Accepted By The Masses:

Ignorance: (Innocence Or Willful)

Hosea 4:6 NLT
My people are being destroyed because they don’t know Me..."

Hosea 4:6 KJV
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge..."

Matthew 24:14 KJV
And this Gospel Of The Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Many have not yet heard the good news of the gospel for the first time. As Christians, that is “our,” responsibility! (Mark 16:15/ Matthew 28:18-20)

Others refuse the gospel by means of their sinful will. They know The Truth, but will not accept Him..

Romans 1:18-25 NLT (God’s Anger at Sin.)
18 But God shows His anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress The Truth by their wickedness.
19 They know The Truth about God because He has made it obvious to them.
20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.
21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship Him as God or even give Him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused.
22 Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools.
23 And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies.
25 They traded The Truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of The Creator Himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.

Humility: (Lack Of)

Psalm 116:6 KJV
The Lord preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and He helped me.

Obadiah 1:4 KJV
Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith The Lord.

Matthew 18:1-5 KJV
1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 And Jesus called a little child unto Him, and set him in the midst of them,
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in My name receiveth Me.

Matthew 23:12 KJV
And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

Luke 18:17 KJV
Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

I Corinthians 1:26,27 KJV
26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

James 4:6 KJV
"...God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble."

Religious Bondage:

Thinking the church only a prison of “dos and don't,” many steer clear, content living lives outside of the mercy and love of God. Little do they realize, that their (sinful) life is the one of bondage, and that only in Christ is true liberty, and the true church of Jesus Christ is a house of spiritual freedom.

Isaiah 61:1 KJV
The Spirit Of The Lord God is upon me; because The Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

Psalm 37:4 KJV
Delight thyself also in The Lord: and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

John 8:32,36 KJV
32 And ye shall know The Truth, and The Truth shall make you free.
36 If The Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Romans 8:2 KJV
For the law of The Spirit Of Life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

II Corinthians 3:17 KJV
Now The Lord is that Spirit: and where The Spirit Of The Lord is, there is liberty.

Galatians 5:1 KJV
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.


Many have lives filled with memories of terrible sins, and thus they think themselves too guilty, too sinful to come to The Lord and His church, but The Truth is....if we but repent of our sins and ask Him....

Psalm 103:12 KJV
As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us.

Micah 7:19 KJV
He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us; He will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

John 6:37 KJV
All that The Father giveth Me shall come to Me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.

John 3:16,17 KJV
16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.

I John 1:9 KJV
If we confess our sins, He is Faithful and Just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Pet Sins

Many will not come to The Lord, because they have a pet sin, that they “will,” not give up.
Alcohol, drugs, illicit sex, hatred, etc. etc..

Psalm 52:3 KJV
Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness.

Proverbs 2:12-15 NLT
12 Wisdom will save you from evil people, from those whose words are twisted.
13 These men turn from the right way to walk down dark paths.
14 They take pleasure in doing wrong, and they enjoy the twisted ways of evil.
15 Their actions are crooked, and their ways are wrong.

Jeremiah 14:10 NLT
So this is what The Lord says to His people: “You love to wander far from Me and do not restrain yourselves. Therefore, I will no longer accept you as My people. Now I will remember all your wickedness and will punish you for your sins.”

John 3:19,20 KJV
19 And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than Light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth The Light, neither cometh to The Light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

Luke 13:3,5 KJV (Jesus)
3 I tell you...except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
5 I tell you...except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

II Thessalonians 2;11,12 KJV
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not The Truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Ego: (Self-esteem or self-importance)

Bow the knee and repent of “my-sins?” Never. I haven't sinned I've lived a good life, I help charities, etc. etc. etc.

Isaiah 64:6 KJV
But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

John 1:12,13 KJV
12 But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

I Corinthians 1:18,21,23,25 KJV
18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

I Corinthians 2:14 KJV
But the natural man receiveth not the things of The Spirit Of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

I Corinthians 3:19 KJV

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
Ephesians 2:8,9 KJV
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is The Gift Of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Titus 3:5 KJV
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of The Holy Ghost;


Living for The Lord, will never, in this world, be the “popular-way.”

Matthew 10:16-22 KJV
16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for My sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
20 For it is not ye that speak, but The Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
22 And ye shall be hated of all men for My name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

John 15:18,19 KJV
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

II Corinthians 6:14-18 KJV
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath Light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of The Living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith The Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
18 And will be A Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith The Lord Almighty.

II Thessalonians 3;6 KJV
Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.

Christianity is not the popular way, and will never be the world's spiritual choice to follow.
Popular Broadway religion, coming soon to an area near you!

Matthew 7:13,14 KJV
13 Enter ye in at The Strait Gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because Strait is The Gate, and Narrow is The Way, which leadeth unto Life, and few there be that find it.

John 5:42,43 KJV
42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
43 I am come in My Father's name, and ye receive Me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

II Thessalonians 2:1-12 KJV
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what with holdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only He who now letteth will let, until He be taken out of The Way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom The Lord shall consume with The Spirit Of His Mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:
9 Even him (The Anti-Christ), whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of The Truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not The Truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Last Hour Warning:

Luke 13:23-30 KJV
23 Then said one unto Him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And He said unto them,
24 Strive to enter in at The Strait Gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and He shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
27 But He shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from Me, all ye workers of iniquity.
28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.
30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.
