My 50ish mind has been pondering this question, is the path to salvation a standard "narrow" width for all ? Or is the path apportioned/limited to what the Lord knows of our strengths and limitations ?
Wow, great question. I often ponder the same thing. I find myself fluctuating between both these views. Looking at what scripture has to say along with the Fathers it's appearant it is indeed a very narrow path to salvation and sad to say most of mankind is doomed. Even though we have free will to choose I often wonder why most don't. I also wonder if God has a hand on those that are being perfected in Christ as compared to those that don't and if there is any favoritism or reason for this.
I also wonder why if we have such divine truth on our side why aren't more attracted to it and
there are many luke warm in the church. Why is it that a third of the men in tibet dedicate themselves to finding enlightenment in tibeten budhism? Do they know something we don't? If elightenment/truth is so blissfull and fullfilling why don't we have that going on in the Church when we have the truth? Just some questions I have been thinking about recently also.
