RELIGION RIGHTEOUS OR RIP-OFF
Is religion confusing? Does it make you uncomfortable? The path to the Lord
shouldn’t be. Are feelings of emptiness and longing gripping your soul? Are you searching for relief from the torrent of day-to-day pressure and stress? Have you had thoughts or feelings of seeking spiritual healing, but are afraid? Well, you’re not alone. Many of us find ourselves in the same situation.
The thoughts of journeying into the arena of religion can be frightening. The fear and disgust that we sometimes experience arise from visions of traditions and rituals impressed upon us. God should never take a backseat to the business end of churches. The biggest fear is getting caught-up in an empty cause. We fear the possibility of more let-downs, which leads to more hurt.
The world around us offers little hope. And we are drawn to the promise of someone who offers just that—hope. That someone is our Lord Jesus. What we face is the constant bombardment from the world that says God is not real. If we do venture to investigate, our natural thoughts are: what’s the catch? But there is no catch. God created a way for us to return to Him through Jesus. The only requirement is to believe. Believe with all your heart, soul, and mind that Jesus is the savior of mankind.
Do not allow man-made religions to confuse the issue of connecting to our Lord. It’s simple: open the door to your cold, dead heart and let the healing and the love of Jesus Christ enter in. Your journey with Christ is a never-ending experience where you’re never alone.
