Matthew 7:13-14

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

The narrow gate is faith in Jesus Christ, and the way is narrow because the word of God constricts it. To believe in Jesus, to establish him as the Lord of your life, and live in submissive obedience to the word of God is the narrow gate and the narrow path to heaven. To enter the wide gate and take the wide path is to come to God however you like or not at all. Wide and easy is the path that caters to desires in this life, tempting with temporal pleasure or conjuring up a savior or religion of imagination that pleases. There is only one way to the Father and eternal life: the narrow way of Jesus Christ. All other paths lead to an eternity in hell. Tragically, most will travel the wide path, and few will find the narrow way.
