Perverted Religion is Movement Away From God by Robert Ricciardelli

Religion can sharpen our awareness of who we are and who God is, and to remind us of our deficiency and the omnipotency of our Creator. When we use religion as an enforcer for God, we are not operating in the Spirit of grace and the ambassadors of His love. Religion can make someone feel superior and right, and create doctrines that justify exclusivity and hate. And yet God Himself desires love and unity for His creation. When the fullness of Christ comes, He will show the world how wrong it was about sin, how wrong it was about who was in the right, and how wrong it was in it’s judgment.

The key for any religion should be relationship with God and movement toward His nature? Can you see the good part of religion doing this through rituals and disciplines?

Jesus was most angry with the Pharisees of the religion of His day. What would you classify as Pharisaical in the religion of our day?

John 16:8 says “And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment” What does this mean for you?
