JESUS REJECTS RELIGION (Mark 12:38-40)

August 14, 2013

Have you given up on religion?

Many people would say yes to that question, and the fact is, you should. 

Religion is simply man’s way of telling God, I got this, I can do this on my own.  If I follow these certain rules that I created, and if I do these certain rituals that I created, and if I give this much money that I decided is enough, then I can earn or buy my way into heaven.   

Listen to this podcast to hear how Jesus totally rejects religion.  Jesus has taught us that the single greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, with all your mind, with all your soul, and with all your strength.  Jesus then says if you can do this, then to be a believer is simply having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as your Master and Savior. 

Jesus rejects man’s rituals.  He rejects man’s religious ceremony.  He rejects man’s declarations about what is right and wrong.  Instead, we are to ask Jesus to forgive us of our sins, make Him our Master, and then love Him with all that we are. 

That’s it.  It is that simple.  Listen and rejoice with us as we learn what Jesus thinks about man’s religion.
