Beware of the Door With Too Many Keys

While listening to an audiobook this morning, I heard the author quote an old Portuguese proverb: “Beware of the door with too many keys.” He was applying the proverb to a different subject, but it brought my mind to the simplicity of Christianity.

I am thankful that there are not “too many keys” to our faith. The message of Christianity is very simple: “The just shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:17)

To elaborate a bit,  you could look at that message delineated like this:

That’s it. Very simple.

False religions, on the other hand, tend to complicate and confuse. In light of that, I would say, “Beware of the door with too many keys.”
