God Wants You To Be Free From Religion….

Surprised?

 
Does this appear blasphemous or even unpatriotic? Before you click away from here, let me show you what I mean.

(They) were scoffing at Him.”                Luke 16:14

Here we read of a group of Religious people who were scoffers of Jesus and therefore scoffers of God.
The men in this story were called Pharisees. They were the religious elite of Israel during the time that Jesus Christ lived.
They hated what Jesus had to say, therefore they scoffed at Him.
In the same way as these Pharisees, many people today show a sneering animosity when confronted with the truth of God…
But isn’t religion the truth of God?

 

The Dictionary Definition of Religion:

 
Middle English religioun, from Anglo-French religiun, Latin religion-, religio supernatural constraint, sanction, religious practice, perhaps from religare to restrain, tie back,
 
The service and worship of God or the supernatural.
 
A commitment or devotion to religious faith or observance.
 
A personal set or institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs, and practices.   Archaic : scrupulous conformity : conscientiousness.
 
A cause, principle, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith
 
So religion is not exclusive to those who believe in God or some deity. It can apply to anyone with a cause, principle or system of beliefs.
Since everyone has a system of beliefs, no one can truly know freedom from religion.
 

Freedom From God

 
There is a group who has formed a ‘Freedom from Religion Foundation’. However, when you read about their founder and their adherents, they are not really people who are desiring to free from religion, they want to be free from belief in God.
 
They are atheists whose religion or system of beliefs is that there is no God to answer to or to be constrained by.
 
So there are a lot of false religions. Often those in such religions portray themselves as God lovers, but they are really God mockers. This hypocrisy turns people off and motivates many to abandon the idea of God altogether.
 
At least the religion of the atheist’s hatred of God is consistent…but it is religion nonetheless.
 
Hypocrisy and false thinking about God is the religion that God wants us to be free from.
 
How can we be truly free from false religion?
