Comment: Why Religion?

(See in situ)


Why Religion?

Religion is man's futile attempt to define the infinite.

Have a relationship instead.

Read the words of Jesus, and the words of those who knew Him.

Such as these from John, his friend and disciple

"He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God."

Pray, be still, listen, learn.

Be sincere, be willing to change, be ready to grow.

Joyfully follow the path laid out before you.

Love God with all your heart and mind and soul and strength.

Love your neighbor as yourself.

Repent. Believe. Rejoice.
