The Bible, Religion and Relationship…

Every serious Jesus-follower should read through the entire Bible at least once.  Otherwise, you don’t really know what you signed up for.  And you end up taking a lot of other people’s word for what God wrote and who He is. 

We talk a lot about RELATIONSHIP vs RELIGION and how “religion” is bad…and yet it’s easy to let others spoon-feed us and to fool ourselves into thinking second-hand knowledge (religion!) is enough — but a real, living relationship takes work.

  1. This is a great post. This is one of the first things that people who do not believe in God attack … religion. They point out all the bad things people have done in the name of religion in the past and how it has been misused. But they cannot say anything to a personal experience. Thank you for reminding us not to work on a better religion but a better relationship. A better religion will be the natural out flowing from the latter.
