Jesus didn’t die so we could have a religion. He died so we could have a relationship with Him.
Thank you, Joyce, for making it clear that there is a basic difference between religion and being a real Christian. A religion is a set of ritual observances and a set of rules agreed upon by a sect. Christianity is more than that because it is truly about our relationship with Jesus. I will meditate on Joyce’s words deeply because they explain why there is so much conflict in the world today between religions. Many of the wars in the world today are in the name of religion. People are misguided and hard-lined because we should live our lives in the name of the Lord instead of in the name of a religion.
