Many people, it seems, follow a “Country Music” Theology, rather than the Bible. “The Red Dirt Road,” for example, said, “I learned the path to Heaven is full of sinners and believers.” Really? Psalm 1:5 says “sinners” are not “in the congregation of the righteous;” Jesus said He “did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance” (Matthew 9:13); and the command is, “Cleanse your hands, you sinners” (James 4:8). By obeying Jesus Christ, “believers were increasingly added to the Lord” (Acts 5: 14). Everyone will not crowd into Heaven, according to Jesus, “for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it” (Matthew 7:13-14). “The red dirt road” is a Dead End!
