Matthew, chapter 7

1 "Do not judge so that you will not be judged. 2 "For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you."
Another quote that a lot of Christians seem to have forgotten. They're quite keen on judging people that do not adhere to their views or values ... Why don't they simply let their God judge those people?

14 "For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it."
Why doesn't God make it bigger so that more people will find it? Isn't he interested in saving them?

22 "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' 23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'"
Casting out demons and doing miracles must really have been easy and common at the time. But even that apparently is not enough to be among the chosen ones.
