One Way

Psalm 1: 5-6.

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

There are only two ways: God’s way, and everything else. Our choice, then, is to follow Him completely or to walk the path of the ungodly. The way of God, the way of the righteous, is straight and narrow. The way of the ungodly is broad and seems pleasant, but it ends in eternal judgment. The ungodly are like chaff, having no weight to keep them in the threshing basket. They will be blown off like chaff in the wind, and will have no place with the righteous at the final judgment.

I’ve lived long enough to have heard way more than I need to about mankind’s reasoning concerning all the different religions. The philosophy that all roads lead to God as long as you believe in something, is a lie. Jesus said, “I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes unto the Father but by ME!” (John 14:6). Jesus always spoke clear truth, with no ambiguity.

Man’s way, on the other hand, is full of contradiction and debate. That’s why there are so many different denominations, variations of denominations, and such confusion created by man’s thinking. Religion is a human construct, in the sense of what man has chosen to believe. God did not create all this division. He is not the author of confusion.

In the final judgment, there will be no commingling of the righteous (God’s Way) and the ungodly (man’s way). God knows all things, even the deep and hidden things of the human heart. There will be no debate, no legal shenanigans, when the final judgment is made.

Now that we have completed this short study of Psalm 1, I would suggest you go back and read the Psalm again from start to finish. It’s a little gem of wisdom!
