that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God,
heeding his voice, and holding fast to him.
-- Dt 30:15-20
The way of Christ "leads to life"; a contrary way "leads to destruction." The Gospel parable of the two ways remains ever present in the catechesis of the Church; it shows the importance of moral decisions for our salvation: "There are two ways, the one of life, the other of death; but between the two, there is a great difference."
-- CCC 1696
