Several passages in the Book of Mormon describe a strait and narrow path that leads to eternal life. However, it is uncertain whether this path is described as being strait (meaning “narrow”) or straight (meaning “not crooked”). Fortunately, both of these words offer valuable and accurate insights about the path leading to eternal life.
