The Trinity Delusion An examination of the doctrine of the Trinity

There are Few: the Remnant

"It is the remnant that will be saved." (Romans 9:24)

There is only a remnant who will be saved. Jesus taught us, "the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are FEW who find it" (Matthew 7:14). Many are called but only a FEW are chosen (Matthew 22:14). When his disciples asked him if only a few will be saved, Jesus said, "Strive to enter through the narrow door for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able." (Luke 13:24). Jesus even said, "when the son of man comes, will he find faith on the earth?" There will be many who say, "Lord, "Lord" on that Day.

Do not be foolishly presumptuous but humble yourself and fear the Lord. We need to strive to be a part of that remnant. Self declarations will not make it so. Many are called, few are chosen. As Paul said, "we must endure many tribulations to enter the Kingdom of God." The prideful and arrogant who, by an act of their own will, identify and label themselves as part of that remnant, will only have their pride and arrogance to lay before Jesus on that Day.

Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins. Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain His calling and choosing you; for as long as you do these things, you will never stumble; for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you. (2 Peter 1:5-11).
