The Golden Rule

13 Enter ye in at, the narrow gate; because broad and roomy is the way that leadeth unto destruction, - and, many, are they who enter thereby: 14 Because, narrow, is the gate, and, confined, the way, that leadeth unto life, - and, few, are they who find, it. 15 Beware of false prophets, who come unto you in clothing of sheep, - while, within, they are ravening wolves.
