What is Religion?

Posted: August 27, 2010 in Blog Talk Radio: Religion Exposed

What is religion ? Religion is man’s way of worshiping God. Man made religion began thousands of years ago in the Old Testament, and has continued with a great deal of influence today. In the New Testament, Christ addressed the issue of the influence of man-made tradition on biblical doctrine. He interpreted the problem as so grave that he openly accused the Jews (the scribes and Pharisees) of shutting the Kingdom of heaven unto men, not allowing entry – Matthew 23:13-39. This feat was accomplished via their traditions which they taught in place of the commandments. Make no mistake about it, the Bible is right. From the first pages of Genesis all the way to the last book of Revelations. Discover how religion has separated man from God and the Kingdom of Heaven.

    Here is a small list of religious founders along with their birth year and/or year they started THEIR organization. If God was the founder of his church, why is there a need for other founders? If you examine closely many of these organizations websites, you will discover many of their purposes for creating a “New Religion.” Because religion is “Man’s way of worshiping God, these founders were already in error when they called these assemblies by non biblical names. God never started religion nor did he ordained man to do so. Regardless to an individual’s reason for establishing a religion, religions are unscriptural. By establishing biblical founders, on earth, the Bible also certifies that modern-day founders are unscriptural, yet believers flock to them, captivated by the appeal of present-day founders.
