537 RELIGION.

John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Every person wants to think they are okay and will be secure in this life and the life to come after their death. They live out their rituals and habits, making excuses for their anger and hate, while condemning the thoughts and actions of others.

Proverbs 21:2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.

They do this to puff themselves up with the pretence to show that they are better than those they condemn.

1Corinthians 8:1 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.

All religions are steeped in traditions, which have originated somewhere in the past. Men have developed rituals and habits to keep themselves safe from angry gods, chance, fate, or whatever they consider their superiors.

They attend church, go to séances, worship the sun, moon and stars, bow down to authorities, give their wealth to unworthy causes, and do all manner of sacrificial things in the hopes of being found righteous to whatever they think is in control.

They make traditions and habits, which they teach and pass down through their generations, thinking that they are right and that they will be accepted for their diligence to their religion.

They are making their own religion to follow and promote. 

Mark 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

Manmade religions have taken over the world and each is willing to condemn and kill the other because they want to ‘prove’ that THEY are right.

They work hard and speak loudly, to pronounce their ‘righteousness’ before God and man and end up condemning themselves by their own actions.

James 1:26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.

They monetize their religions and promote their wealth as acceptable standards in God’s eyes; being diligent to live according to their doctrines, habits and traditions.   

Galatians 1:13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:

Galatians 1:14 And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.

Even the title ‘Christian’ has been warped and distorted to mean someone who goes to a certain church or carries out a certain ritual.

Wars have been waged, won, and lost over man’s belief that they are righteous and others are not. Religion has caused more pain and suffering than any other selfish motivations.

All thinking that God will accept them and condemn those others.

Titles like Christian, Protestant, Catholic, Muslim, Buddhism, Confucius, Atheism, devil worship, and so on, roll off men’s tongues and ARE WRONG!

There is only one-way to be right and it is NOT a religion; it is a lifestyle.

It is a relationship with God’s only begotten son, Jesus Christ, and doing the things that He advises you to do.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Religion cannot save you!

I’m not saying that religion is all bad.

What I am saying is that, if you are religious, it should be because that is what Jesus has told you to do. He should be the director of your life because He is the keeper of your soul; not a religion, tradition, or heritage.
