Remember the world already fell to Satan's authority ever since Adam fell. Romans 5:12-14 shows the very consequences of Adam's sin that it brought sin and death. 2 Corinthians 4;4 shows that Satan is indeed the god of this world. Ever since the days of Noah up to today we have people choosing anything but God. People laughed at the idea of a coming judgment until it was too late in several instances. In Noah's day, nobody believed that one day the world would drown. During the days of Jeremiah, people laughed at God's warning of exile from their nation where they will be under the hands of the Babylonian oppressors until it happened. What should be so heartbreaking even today that many people keep that kind of attitude. They only laugh at the call for repentance and so few ever respond to it.
The warning of Jesus in Matthew 7;13-14 shows how often the majority is wrong and the minority is right. There are times when the majority is right but what is right and wrong is not determined by the number of people who believe it. Many people think they are in the right religion because it has the biggest numbers never mind that so few people love the truth and so many people love the wrong. It has come to a point that what is considered "truth" is if many people believe it even if it is a huge lie from the pits of Hell. Many people think nothing is wrong with sins like pornography, premarital sex, adultery, gambling, homosexuality, worshiping other gods and many more that are declared perfectly legal by sinful governments. Even if more people do wrong but wrong will always be wrong and right will always be right.
