1 Entonces Jehová envió a Natán a David. Vino a él y le dijo: Había dos hombres en una ciudad: uno rico y otro pobre. 2 El rico tenía muchas ovejas y vacas: 3 pero el pobre no tenía nada, excepto una ovejita que había comprado y criado; y creció con él y con sus hijos; comía de su comida y bebía de su copa, y se acostaba en su regazo y era para él como una hija.
4 Y vino un viajero al hombre rico, y éste no escatimó tomar de sus ovejas y de sus vacas, para vestir al caminante que había venido a él; pero tomó el cordero del pobre, y lo vistió para el hombre que había venido a él. 5 La ira de David se encendió en gran manera contra aquel hombre, y dijo a Natán: Vive Jehová, que el hombre que ha hecho esto morirá:
17 Y levantándose los ancianos de su casa, fueron a él para levantarle de la tierra; pero él no quiso, ni comió pan con ellos. 18 Y aconteció que al séptimo día murió el niño. Y los siervos de David temían decirle que el niño había muerto, porque decían: He aquí, viviendo aún el niño, le hablamos, y no quiso escuchar nuestra voz; ¿cómo, pues, se enojará si le decimos que el niño ha muerto?

Religion is an essentially voluntary matter. No one absolutely should profess faith in Christ and join the church, against his will. Each one, of himself, must repent, believe, and ask to be baptized. No one, except Christ, has the right to give any orders as to what each one should do in matters of religion.
The violation of this principle of will has led to untold difficulties. The religion of proxies or godparents has become dangerous to true religion. Forcing people to be Christians is the sure measure to perpetuate the pseudo-Christianity which has ruined the world.
When the Romanists speak of “the church,” they mean the Papacy whose seat is on the Tiber and whose tentacles extend throughout the world. We hear of “The Church of England,” of “The Presbyterian Church in the United States,” of “The Methodist Episcopal Church South,” and we think of course of the great ecclesiastical organizations which bear respectively these names.

It would be difficult in a few pages to collect a wealth of facts and information about the Christian Church through 20 centuries of existence. This of course is not my fundamental purpose, but I want to highlight the fundamental aspects that gave Christianity its beginning, emphasizing the challenges to which the Church of all times has been subjected, especially in the first two centuries, in terms of doctrinal and theological aspects, major heresies and also ethical deviations. These not only arose to destroy the faith of the first Christians, but many have transcended and in one way or another have influenced the creation of the theological and apologetic bases and columns of the Church of all times. The Church has known how to face these challenges guided and sustained by the Holy Spirit and by men who have risen up powerfully raising the truth of the gospel, before the stratagems of the enemy.
In the eschatological reality of the Old Testament, the imminence of a present and futuristic Kingdom of God was denoted. Laad tells us with respect to this Jewish theological reality: “A theology that distinguishes a God who comes, God who visited Israel in Egypt to make his People, who has visited them at various times in the course of their history, this same God, must return to them in the future to judge iniquity and establish his Kingdom. Israel’s hope is rooted in history, or rather, in the God who manifests himself through history (…). There are times of visitation when His real designs find concrete expression, the most important of which will be the final visitation to consummate His will and bring salvation”. (1)

Matthew 7:13-14: Enter by the narrow gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter by it. 14For strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads to life, and few there be that find it. See how wide is the way after it. The world tells us broad is the way that leads to a narrow life.
