A radio ad for a church caught my attention: Because youve heard about Christianity, you might not be interested in religion. Well, it might surprise youJesus wasnt interested in religion either. But He was big on relationship and teaching us to love one another. It continued, You may not like everything about our church, but we offer authentic relationship, and were learning to love God and each other. Youre welcome to visit.
This church may have overstated things about Jesus and religion because Scripture does speak of true religion in James 1:27 as helpful deeds toward others. But Jesus did have difficulties with religious people of His day. He said the Pharisees, guided by tradition and rules not by love for the Lord, outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside [they] are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness (Matt. 23:28). They didnt have the love of God in their hearts (John 5:42). Jesus wanted relationship with them, but they were not willing to come to [Him] (v.40).
If being religious means following a set of rules so we can look goodinstead of enjoying a relationship with the SaviorJesus isnt interested. He offers forgiveness and love to all who want an intimate relationship with Him.
Read: John 5:18,37-47
Would like to visit someday.
Sprinkling most of the day.
Same here. Too rainy to duck hunt. So I drove up the Elliot Hwy to sight see.
Been 13 years since I was last up there.
