The narrow way and the broad way do not contrast religion with paganism. Jesus is not setting the higher religions against the lower ones, or even Christianity against open immorality. The choice is between divine accomplishment and human achievement. Both systems claim to be the way to God. The wide gate is not marked “This Way to Hell”; it is labeled “Heaven,” the same as the narrow gate. It just doesn’t go there.

— John MacArthur, “The Gospel According to Jesus”
