Yes. I am 'irreligious', like my Lord.
Jesus came to scrap the system that God himself had set up. That's why the religious leaders called for his crucifixion. He was stealing their thunder. He was single-handedly demolishing the religious establishment.... calling them what they were: 'hypocrites', 'children of hell', whitewashed tombs and a brood of vipers in front of the crowds.
They really believed they were doing God's work when they had him tortured to death.
After a few generations went by, some people said 'Hey... we LIKE what that guy Jesus taught. Let's form a new religion AROUND it, and call it 'Christianity.'
They completely missed the point.
Here are the facts, still warm from Jesus' sweet lips:
"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." That exclusive statement by Jesus rules out all man-made efforts to get to God, and therefore, ultimately, heaven. The way to God is a PERSON, not a religion. "I am the way." "I am the door." "I am the gate." Test these claims Jesus made about Himself. He is the only way into God's Kingdom - which is 'at hand' - so close you can touch it. Jesus is the one and only PORTAL into this spiritual dimention... a fourth dimention - His Kingdom on earth. This is why we pray 'Thy Kingdom come'. Jesus is a spiritual 'black hole' for the world's sins, crimes and evil. Any organization that makes the (ridiculous) claim "You need Jesus PLUS US to get to heaven." is not from God. Jesus is all you will ever, ever need.
"Come to Me all you who are burdened and weary and I will give you rest for your souls. Take My yoke upon you; for My burden is easy, and My yoke is light." Do this and live forever starting now...
