Apparently there are twenty-one or thirty-one different religions in this world that express different ideas. In Christianity alone there are so many denominations that in most cases have their own doctrine, that is, a different doctrine than the one brought/set by Christ. There are so many ideas floating around this world of ours. Messages thrown here-and-there. “Believe this, don’t believe that. That religion is wrong, this one is right!” You know what… it bothers me to see that God’s children are fighting against each other due to personal preferences and cultural differences instead of fighting against what is wrong in this world. Religion spends more time bickering like two dramatic high-school girls fighting over a guy that is playing them both.
Religion is not from God. It might have an appearance of something godly, but it’s mere humanistic. Religion has distorted God’s vision for the world. Religion has led the world into thinking that it depends on our actions to be right with God. Religion has led us to believe that each unique religion provides a specific path to the same end, and men are free to choose the path that best suits their own interest and culture. I hate to be a kill joy, but yeah… that is not how it works.
There is one way to God. There is only one message. One idea. One truth. One faith. Truth is not relative… truth is universal, that is, Christ is universal. Jesus Christ is truth. Through Christ life is understood – life’s mysteries are discovered, and with Christ life is pretty awesome to say the least.
“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called ; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” – Ephesians 4:4-6
Religion did not call us. Man did not save man. Freedom and redemption did not come from organized religion. It came from God through Jesus Christ. God called you out into one body, one spirit, one hope, one faith; one everything! No religion has the power to save. Religion can continue to act as if it’s important and plays a huge role in this world, but there is only one star here, and that is, Christ Jesus.
“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.” – Ephesians 4:14
We cannot allow ourselves to be manipulated into accepting/believing half-truths, it’s the complete truth or nothing. Do not let yourself be deceived. Religion uses words or ideas that appeal to your emotions—your fears, your loves, your hates—rather than to your reason/sound spiritual mindset. Let the spirit that God deposited in you guide you.
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6
We can say this, we can make up this, but at the end, it is all about Christ. It started with Jesus Christ, and it will continue with Jesus Christ. There is only ONE!
