30 Day Challenge - Day 4

So, you want to know my views on religion?

This may shock you.

I hate it.  Yep, I hate religion.

Religion is cold, stuffy and legalistic.

Religion tells you what you can't do and what you must do.

Religion pushes people away.

Religion makes you look arrogant and holier than those around you.

But a relationship with with a loving God, who sent His Son to die for me?  Now that is a different story.

I'm a born again Christian, saved through grace.  I believe in God Almighty, the maker of heaven and earth.  I believe in his son, Jesus Christ, and that He sacrificed Himself on the cross for my sins.  I believe He was raised from the dead, and sits at the right hand of his Father.

I believer I am the chiefest of sinners, but have forgiveness through the blood of Jesus.  I know I will continue to fail throughout this life, but that God will continue love me.

I believe that everything I have has been given to me from the Lord, and that the purpose of my life is to live  in a way that will glorify Him.

Religion is dead.  But a relationship with God?  It gets better every day.

  1. So sad that man has turned religion into something with such a bad taste to it. If only we had stuck to God's idea of what religion actually is:

    "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James" 1:27

I enjoy reading every single comment I get, and make every effort to respond to each one...as well as return the favor! I do allow anonymous comments. But, if you use anonymity to hide behind cowardly attacks on my faith or anything else, it will be deleted. Also, if your comment is lewd, vulgar, and full of potty mouth words, I will delete it. Thank you!
