But after a while they all began to deride him behind his back. So much for Pliable.
Now as Christian was walking alone, he saw another a long way off, coming across the field to meet him. The gentlemans name was Mr. Worldly Wiseman, who lived in the town of Carnality, a very large city, very close to Christians own home town. This man, having heard of Christian whose flight from Destruction had been quite the topic of conversation in those parts had guessed who he was by observing his tortured labor, his sighs and groans and the like, and he began to converse with Christian.
Worldly Wiseman: Hello, my good man. Where are you going in this burdened manner? Christian: As burdened a manner, I think, as any creature ever had! You ask me where I am going, and I tell you that I am going to that gate that stands yonder. There I will be told how to rid myself of this burden. Worldly Wiseman: Do you have a wife?

And children? Its as if I had no family. Christian: If its good advice, I will. I need some good counsel. Worldly Wiseman: I advise you, then, to quickly get rid of that burden, for you will never be content until you do so, nor can you enjoy the blessings that God has given you until then.
Christian: That is what I want more than anything, to be rid of this heavy burden. But I cannot get it off myself, nor is there any man in my country who can get it off my shoulders; thats why Im going this way, as I said, to be rid of my burden. Worldly Wiseman: Who told you to go this way to get rid of your burden?
Christian: A man who seemed to me to be a very great and honorable person, who goes by the name of Evangelist. Worldly Wiseman: I curse him for his counsel! There is not a more difficult and dangerous way in the world than that which he has set for you as you will discover, if you follow his directions. Youve already met with trouble, as I see from the mud all over you, for I can tell it is from the Bog of Discouragement. That old swamp is the beginning of troubles for those who go that way.
Listen to me. If you go that way, you are likely to meet with weariness, pain, hunger, danger, nakedness, battle, beasts, and demons.
In a word: death! These things are true, having been confirmed by many testimonies. And why should a man take a strangers advice, and in so doing, throw away his life? Christian: Why, sir, this burden on my back is more terrible to me than all these things you have described. I dont care what troubles I meet with in the way, if I can also meet with deliverance from my burden. Worldly Wiseman: How did you come by such a burden in the first place? Christian: By reading this book in my hand.
Worldly Wiseman: Ah, I thought so. What has happened to you has happened to other weak men, who meddle with things too high for them and become distracted. Those distractions not only unnerve men, as I see they have done with you, but they lead them to go off on desperate ventures to find what they are seeking, which they really do not know.
Christian: I know what I seek: relief from my heavy burden. Worldly Wiseman: But why do you seek it in this way, seeing that so many dangers come with it? Especially since, if youll hear me out, I can tell you how to get what you want with encountering the dangers that youll run into if you continue in the way. And besides, instead of those dangers, you will find safety, friendship, and contentment. Christian: Please, sir, tell me this secret.
Worldly Wiseman: Why, in that village over there, which is called Morality, lives a gentleman whose name is Legalism a very judicious man, of good reputation, who has the skill to help men discard such burdens as are on your shoulders. I have heard that he has helped a great deal of good in this way, and he also has the skill to cure those who are going crazy over their burdens. There, you can be relieved from your burden, and if you do not wish to return to your former home as, indeed, I would wish for you you can send for your wife and children and have them come to this city, where there are many available homes.
And there you can live, surrounded by honest neighbors who make a good neighborhood. Now Christian had to stop and think, but eventually he concluded that, if everything this man had said was true, it would be good to accept his advice, and so he spoke: Christian: Sir, how do I get to this honest mans house?
Worldly Wiseman: Do you see that hill over there? Go up that hill, and the first house you come to is his. So Christian left the way in order to go to Mr.
Legalisms place, but when he got to the hill, it seemed so high, and it was so steep, that Christian was afraid to go any farther, lest the hill should fall on his head.
He stopped and pondered what he should do next, and his burden seemed heavier than it ever had before. Then he noticed that flashes of fire would occasionally come out of the hill, and Christian began to fear that he might be burned. And now he began to be sorry that he had taken Mr.
Worldly Wisemans counsel. Just then, he saw Evangelist coming to meet him, and at the sight of him he began to blush with shame. Evangelist came up to him with a scowl upon his face, and began to reason with Christian: Evangelist: What are you doing here, Christian? Christian did not know how to answer, and stood silently before him. Evangelist: Arent you the man whom I found crying in the city of Destruction?
Christian: Yes sir, I am that man.
Evangelist: And didnt I direct you to the little wooden gate? Christian: Yes, dear sir. Evangelist: How is it, then, that you are so quickly turned aside? For you are now no longer in the way. Christian: I met a gentleman right after I had got out of the Bog of Discouragement, who persuaded me that I might find a man in this village who could remove my burden.
Evangelist: Who was he? Christian: He looked like an honest man, and he talked me into coming here, but when I saw this hill, and how it hangs over the way, I decided not to go there lest it should fall on my head and crush me. Christian: He asked me where I was going, and I told him. Evangelist: Then what did he say? Christian: He asked me if I had a family, and I told him, and I said that I am so burdened that I cannot take pleasure in them as I once did.
Evangelist: And what did he say to that? Christian: He advised me to quickly shed my burden, and I told him that was what I was trying to do. I told him I was going to the little wooden gate to get further instructions on how I might get to the place of deliverance. He said he could show me a better way, and one that was not as difficult as the way that you set me in. So I believed him, and turned out of the way into this, looking for a way to ease my burden. But when I got here, and saw things the way they really are, I stopped for fear of danger.
But now I dont know what to do. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven.
Then Christian fell to the ground as if dead, crying, Woe is me! I am undone! At the sight of this, Evangelist clasped his right hand, saying, All manner of sin and blasphemies shall be forgiven unto men. Then Evangelist proceeded, saying, Give heed to the things I am telling you. I will now show you who it was who deceived you, and who it was to whom he sent you. The first is Mr. Worldly Wiseman, who is named correctly partly, because he enjoys only the doctrine of this world,41 and partly because he loves that doctrine best because it saves him best from the responsibilities that come with the cross.
Now there are three things in his counsel that you must utterly abhor: 1 his turning you out of the way; 2 his attempts to render the cross unnecessary and even repugnant to you; and 3 his leading you into that way that leads to death. First, you must abhor his turning you out of the way, and your own compliance in the deed, because this is to reject the counsel of God for the sake of the counsel of a man wise in the ways of the world.
The Lord says, Strive to enter through the narrow gate,43 which is the gate to which I sent you, for narrow is the gate that leads to life, and few there are who find it. Hate, therefore, his turning you out of the way, and abhor yourself for listening to him. Third, you must hate his leading you into any way that leads to death. Consider to whom he sent you, and also how unable that man was to deliver you from your burden.
He to whom you were sent for relief, called Legalism, is the son of a slave woman who is now in bondage with her children;48 in short, she represents Mount Sinai, or the Law, which you feared would fall on your head.
Now if she and her children are in bondage to the Law , how can you expect to be made free by them? Legalism, therefore, is not able to free you from your burden. He has never rid any man from his burden, and never will.
A man cannot be justified by the Law. Therefore, Worldly Wiseman is an alien, and Mr. Legalism is a cheat. As for Civility, despite his coy manner, he is but a hypocrite and cannot help you. Believe me, there is nothing in all this noise but an attempt to turn you from the way of salvation, by turning you from the way in which I had set you. After this, Evangelist called aloud to the heavens for confirmation of what he had said, and there came words and fire out of the mountain under which Christian stood: All who rely on observing the law are under a curse, for it is written: Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.
He was also ashamed to think that this mans arguments, coming from the flesh, should have prevailed with him and caused him to forsake the right way. Eventually, he spoke to Evangelist: Christian: Sir, what do you think?
Is there still hope?
Can I go back and go up to the gate? Will I be abandoned for what Ive done, and sent back from the gate ashamed? I am sorry I listened to this mans advice. May my sin be forgiven? Evangelist: Your sin is very great, for it has transgressed twice: you have forsaken the way, and you have walked in forbidden paths.
But the man at the gate will still receive you, for he has goodwill for men. But take heed that you do not turn aside again, lest you perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. So he went on quickly, not speaking to anyone he encountered. He proceeded the whole time as though he was walking on forbidden ground, and did not consider himself safe until he was again in the way which he had left to follow Mr.
In due time, Christian made his way to the gate, upon which he saw written, Knock, and it shall be opened to you.
He knocked twice, saying, May I now enter here? Will he within open to sorry me, though I have been an undeserving rebel? Then shall I not fail to sing His lasting praise on high.
At last there came to the gate a grave person, whose name was Good Will, and asked who was there, and from where did he come, and what did he want. Christian: Standing here is a poor burdened sinner who comes from the city of Destruction and is going to Mount Zion, that he may be delivered from the wrath to come.
I am told that this gate leads there, and I would like to know if you are willing to let me in. Good Will: I am willing with all my heart.
And with that, he opened the gate. As Christian was stepping in, the other man pulled him in quickly. Christian asked why he did that, to which Good Will replied, A little distance from this gate there is a strong castle, of which Beelzebub is the captain. From there, he and his minions shoot arrows at those who come up to this gate, to kill them before they can enter.
Christian: I rejoice that you got me in, but I tremble at what might have been. And then the man at the gate asked him who had sent him to his gate. Christian: Evangelist told me to come here and knock, and he said that you, sir, would tell me what to do next. Good Will: The door before you is open, and no man can close it.
Christian: Now I begin to reap the benefits of my trials. Good Will: But how is it that you came alone? Christian: Because none of my neighbors saw the danger that I saw. Good Will: Did any of them know of your journey? Christian: Yes, my wife and children saw me leave, and called after me to come back. Also, some of my neighbors called after me, but I ignored them and came on my way. Good Will: But didnt any of them follow you, to persuade you to return? Christian: Yes, both Obstinate and Pliable did, but when they saw that they could not prevail in their own strength, Obstinate went back immediately but Pliable came with me a little way.
Good Will: But why did he not come all the way? Christian: We traveled together as far as the Bog of Discouragement, into which we both fell. Pliable became discouraged and would go no farther. He got out of the bog on the side closest to his home and told me that I would have to go it alone, and then he went back to his house. I continued on. Does he hold the celestial glory in such low esteem that he counts it not worth fighting through a few obstacles to obtain it?
Christian: I have spoken the truth about Pliable, but I should also say that there is not much difference between him and me, for though he went back to his house, I later turned aside to go in the way that leads to death, having been persuaded to go there by the carnal arguments of a man called Worldly Wiseman. Good Will: Oh, did he light on you? Ill wager that he convinced you to seek an easier way at the hands of Mr.
The both of them are cheats. So did you take his advice? Christian: Yes, as far as I dared. I went to find Legalism, but grew frightened when I thought that the mountain by his house might fall on my head. Good Will: That mountain has been the death of many, and will be the death of many more. It is well that you escaped being crushed by it.
Christian: I dont know what might have become of me there if Evangelist had not luckily found me again as I was feeling sorry for myself; but it was Gods mercy that led him to me again, or else I would never have made my way here.
But now here I am, sorry figure that I am, much more deserving of death by that mountain than of being here talking to you. Oh, what a blessing this is, that I can even come in! Good Will: We dont object to anyone coming in, regardless of what theyve done in the past. They are in no way cast out. Look before you. Do you see the narrow path? THAT is the way you must go. It was built by the patriarchs and the prophets, by Christ and His apostles; it is as straight as a ruler can make it.
This is the way you must go. Christian: But are there no twists and turns and forks, by which a stranger can lose his way? Good Will: Yes, there are many paths that abut this one, but they are crooked and wide. This is how you can distinguish the right from the wrong, the right being only straight and narrow. Then I saw in my dream that Christian asked him if he could help remove the burden from his back, for he had not yet gotten rid of it, nor could he get it off without help.
Good Will: Be content to bear your burden until you come to the place of deliverance; there it will fall from your back by itself. So Christian girded up his loins and prepared to continue the journey, and Good Will told him that when he had gone a certain distance, he would come to the house of the Interpreter, at whose door he should knock, and who would show him some excellent things.
Then Christian took leave of that good man, and bade him God-speed. Then he went on until he came to the house of the Interpreter, where he knocked several times. At last someone came to the door and asked who was there. So that man called to the master of the house, who came to Christian and asked him what he wanted.
I was told by the man who stands at the gate that if I called here, you would show me excellent things that might help me in my journey. Interpreter: Come in. I will show you things that will profit you. And he commanded his man to light a candle, and told Christian to follow him.
He led him into a private room, and told his man to open a certain door. When he had done so, Christian saw hanging on the wall a picture of a very grave person. In the picture, the mans eyes were lifted to heaven, he held the best of books in his hand, the law of truth was written upon his lips, and the world was behind him.
He was in a posture of pleading with men, and a crown of gold hung over his head. Christian: What does this mean? Interpreter: The man in this picture is one of a thousand. He can beget children,53 travail in birth with children,54 and nurse them himself when they are born.
And as you see him, with eyes lifted to heaven, book in hand, and the law of truth written on his lips, it is to show you that his work is to know and disclose dark things to sinners. See how he is pleading with men? And see how his back is to the world, and how a crown hangs above his head?
That is to show that, turning away from the things of the world and despising earthly profits to serve his Master, he is sure to have a crown of glory in the next world as his reward. Now, I have shown you this picture first because the man in this picture is the only man whom the Lord of the place you are going has authorized to be your guide in all difficult places you may come across in the way.
So pay attention to what I have shown you, and remember what you have seen, lest in your journey you meet with some who pretend to lead you straight, but whose way goes down to death. Then he took him by the hand and led into a very large room that was filled with dust. After viewing it for a few moments, the Interpreter called for a man to sweep the room.
As he began to sweep, the dust flew about in the air so thickly that Christian felt as though he would choke.Then he went on until he came to the house of the Interpreter, where he knocked several times. Sloth said, Just a little more sleep. Then Christian prepared to resume his journey, and the Interpreter said, The Comforter is always with you, good Christian, to guide you in the way that leads to the City.
Lydia Brownback. As he considered it, he became drowsy, and at last fell asleep, a nap that lasted until late in the evening, when it was almost dark. You came in via the gate, we came over the wall.
