Religion and Christians?


First read Hebrews 4:12 =  For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.


Okay so first of all Christianity is not a religion therefore you may say that I have, NO RELIGION, many people and specifically my friends and classmates say I’m very religious, I keep telling them I am no Religious person, I just have a good/close relationship with GOD and I want to know him better (by reading the bible and going to church of course).

Here’s a video to show you what I mean:

Title= Why I hate religion, But love Jesus

A poem I wrote to highlight the difference between Jesus and false religion. In the scriptures Jesus received the most opposition from the most religious people of his day. At it’s core Jesus’ gospel and the good news of the Cross is in pure opposition to self-righteousness/self-justification. Religion is man centered, Jesus is God-centered. This poem highlights my journey to discover this truth. Religion either ends in pride or despair. Pride because you make a list and can do it and act better than everyone, or despair because you can’t do your own list of rules and feel “not good enough” for God. With Jesus though you have humble confident joy because He represents you, you don’t represent yourself and His sacrifice is perfect putting us in perfect standing with God the Father.
