Love it.

So many people think that it's a religion, but going to church, reading the bible, and quoting scripture will not make you a Christian; if you don't develop a personal, intimate relationship with God you have missed the mark.

I used to be a New Member Helper at my church and I used to try to stress those who were new to Christ and most of them did not hear a word I was saying. I would be telling them to communicate with God just like you would a stranger you had just met and wanted to get to know, so they could understand that you had to take it out of the religious sphere and and make it more personal.

All they wanted was to get into a ministry as soon as possible. They wanted to be an usher, a praise dancer, or be in the choir. God was the last thing on their mind.

Some did get it and for that I was truly grateful.

The definition of Religion in the Merriam Webster Dictionary states:

re·li·gion noun \ri-ˈli-jən\

: the belief in a god or in a group of gods

: an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and rules used to worship a god or a group of gods

: an interest, a belief, or an activity that is very important to a person or group

Does this mean that religion itself is a bad thing?  You'll find the answer varies to those you ask whose beliefs differs from your own.

Religion (in a Christian aspect) becomes a stumbling block when it takes detour from the word of God and when churches adheres to church doctrines that are not Bible based, simply for the need of control, self glorification and self righteousness.  I am not saying that all  church doctrines are bad, as I know that they can also help keep things in order, but if it differs from the Word of God, then there is a big problem.

As you stated, Sir TheTruth, many are too anxious to gain positions, when they have only touched the surface of the water (in this case knowing who God is, His laws and His plan of salvation for mankind). Their need to feel self importance makes them fail in truly establishing a relationship with God and it is why you find many brethren that have members in churches  for many years, some born and raised in their church, lacking in spiritual growth.

I say, "keep your eyes upon Jesus, never mind the storms brewing around you and the clashing of wind and thunder.  Stay focus on your path and your journey, as it may differ from your brother, and should you fall, reach out and take hold of the hands that will never lead you astray, the hands of Jesus, the Christ".

Awesome post, Carmen...

I'm a woman. People always think I am a man and I cannot figure out why.

Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed your post. You nailed it. Many people confuse church and religion with being a Christian, but often, nothing could be further from the truth.

I know lots of people who don't go to organized religious institutions and they have more love in their hearts than many who do.

It is important not to take hold of a title and then think you know what it entails. You can't, only God knows the heart and its motivations.

There are many self-serving people in all denominations; that's to be expected, because people, as a rule want to be esteemed by men which gets them in trouble every time.

Being a Christian doesn't mean that we're supposed to be perfect. It means we have recognized our frailties and are depending on a higher power to lead and guide us.

It's a simple premise, but it escapes many people.

I  agree   with all the  comments  ,  never  once  did  Jesus  mention  a  building   when he  spoke  of  His  Church !!  We are to  be the   church  , Jesus  said  go  and  be  fishers  of  men  . These  mega  churches  lose focus   , religions  the same  ,  the  only   focus  we  are to  have  in  our  life  is  Jesus  Christ  and  what  we  can do to be  more  like  Him   and  how  much  Glory  we  can  bring  Him

I love that, Laurice. The part about Jesus not mentioning a building as being the church. It's the way that I try to live my life. The most important status that I want as a person is to have helped to make a difference in the lives of others. This world is temporal, but if you do your part to make the world a little better by extending kindness to our brethren then we have lived a life worth living.

It isn't the riches we amass here on earth, because those things have little value. I always think about how loved ones clear out your house upon your death and  have little to no sentimental value over the things that many people have loved, lived for, sacrificed for,etc.

Things will never replace human kindness and compassion. If each of us treat others the way we want to be treated, many social ills would disappear.
