kjv@Luke:13:23@ Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,
kjv@Luke:13:24@ Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
kjv@Luke:13:25@ When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
kjv@Luke:13:26@ Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
kjv@Luke:13:27@ But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
kjv@Luke:13:28@ There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
kjv@Luke:13:29@ And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.
kjv@Luke:13:30@ And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.
Instead of just being critical of the concept of "How could a loving God judge" one should at least consider the mechanisms of His judgment to perhaps see why that He might. In this account kjv@Luke:13:25 the master of the house simply shuts the door; the window of opportunity is closed. For how long a time must the master be expected to leave His door open? Is it not His to open and close as He sees fit? Has he not said to strive to enter the straight gate? And yet many have not made the effort, have rather chosen to enter however they wished whenever they wish just expecting to enter His house to do whatever they wish? What kind of master would he be towards His other more considerate guests? Are the outsiders right then to criticize His judgment and not there own judgment instead?
