Religious people did not like Jesus
Religious people killed Jesus
Now…religious people follow Jesus?
How does that work?
We really have imported a lot of our religion into our churches.
Seriously, I am becoming more and more convinced that as long as we are walking humbly before God, how we are led by the Spirit of God is so much more important than our history, or at least as important!!! (Now that sounds ridiculous even writing it!)
Scripture is our basis, our authority, but we need to be careful that just as religious people base their practice, bias and beliefs around their religion, we need to be careful we are not doing the same.
