He preached upon Breadth till it aruged him narrow

The "HE" in this poem is obviously JESUS HIMSELF. HIS teaching had great
breadth to it, but HIS teaching revealed that Truth is really narrow. "The
way is narrow that leads to life but broad is the way that leads to
destruction" (Matthew 7:13-14). Those who are insistent about the broad way
continue to the point of calling the person of "Truth" a liar. The Truth
did not flaunt who HE really was. HIS simplicity caused those who could
not understand to flee from HIS presence. The fool shuns the real thing
just as one is satisfied with Pyrite instead of the treasure of real gold.
The innnocence of JESUS confuses those who cannot comprehend the GOD MAN
HE truly is.
