Religion Vs. Christianity

Religion spells 'DO'
You must do this or do that...

Christianity spells 'DONE'
It is finished, done.
The price is paid in full.
Christ blood on the cross set us free.

It is far easier to live out a religion than it is to live out a relationship. Religions have rules, lists of "do's" and "don'ts", rights and wrongs.

This is, however, precisely what Jesus did NOT come to teach. Jesus came to set us free from religious structure. Free from lists of behavioral practices, free from the law, and free from feeling like we can never measure up to a worldly or religiously imposed standard of behavior.

Eternally His... JMS
