“Who are the “false prophets” against which a serious soul needs to be on his guard? They are those who teach that Heaven may be reached without treading the Narrow Way! They are those who loudly insist that eternal life may be obtained on much easier terms.

They come in “sheep’s clothing:” they appear (to undiscerning souls) to exalt Christ, to emphasize His precious blood, to magnify God’s grace. BUT they do not insist upon repentance; they fail to tell their hearers that nothing but a broken heart which hates sin can truly believe in Christ; they declare not that a saving faith is a living one which purifies the heart (Acts 15:9) and overcomes the world (1 John 5:4).

These “false prophets” are known by their “fruits,” the primary reference being to their “converts”-the fruits of their fleshly labours. Their “converts” are on the Broad Road, which is not the path of open wickedness and vice, but of a religion which pleases the flesh: it is that “way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12).

Those who are on this Broad Road (this way which “seemeth right” to so many), have a head-knowledge of the Truth, but they walk not in it. The “Narrow Way” is bounded by the commandments and precepts of Scripture; the Broad Road is that path which has broken out beyond the bounds of Scripture. Titus 2:11-12 supplies the test as to which “way” we are in: “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world.” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)
