Thought for the week

Christianity is About a Relationship Ė NOT a Religion!
"We love Him because He first loved us." - 1 John 4:19
You know something? There are more awful things done in the name of religion than in anything else. I used to be pretty defensive when somebody said that but now, I tend to agree and I think Jesus would agree as well. Lots of problems have occurred because, in reality, much of religion stinks. Letís think about what we can learn from Jesus about times when religion stinks:
  • When religion puts ceremonial law before the needs of man;
  • When good people are accused of evil because legalism is confused with Godliness;
  • When religion seeks to hurt more than help;
  • When religion causes man to be hardhearted towards Jesus and the needs of others;
  • When religion plots to kill versus save, motivated by hate more than love.
Jesus came to save us from sin and a religion that stinks. You see, Christianity is not about a religion, itís about a relationship with God. And through Christ, we can learn of that relationship and discover the answer to life.

Ken

Christianity is the ONLY TRUE RELATIONSHIP! Why some might ask? It is the ONLY OPPORTUNITY to have a relationship with the living God - Jesus Christ. ALL other so-called religions pay homage to dead pseudo gods that they move around from shelf to shelf. You CANNOT have a relationship with a dead god - therefore only the one Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) offers 'a relationship' with the Living Savior Jesus Christ!!!

Thanks Ken!
