    15. 15. Jesus said: <ul><li>&quot;Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Mt 7:13:-14 </li></ul>
    16. 16. So what we believe really matters: <ul><li>The content of faith is important! </li></ul><ul><li>1 Cor. 15:1 Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you ... that Christ died for our sins ... 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day…. </li></ul>
