“Someone asked him, ‘Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?’ He said to them, ‘Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to.’” Luke 13:23-24
Jesus didn’t feel obligated to answer every question he was asked. The pertinent issue isn’t how many are going to be saved, but whether I am saved. Jesus makes it personal. Some ask questions to distract or deflect attention away from their own spiritual need. Others ask genuine faith questions. It takes discernment to know the difference.
