    The many different religions are the result of mankind, Jehovah God had nothing to do with that silliness.

    When Adam and Eve were created, God spoke with them on a personal level and instructed them on how to render sacred service/ worship to HIM.

    There was only one way to worship God, and it still is today.....we are told through the scriptures that Jehovah is looking for ones who will worship him in "spirit and in truth" John 4:24

    The problem lies in organized or established religion. And it doesnt matter which religion, if it has any type of established organization then consider it part of the problem. Anytime a hierarchy of any sort develops anywhere, corruption is soon to follow. There is no changing that fact. It is only natural to expect the most greedy, power thirsty, and obsessive psychotic personalities to gravitate towards the power centers of every organization including government.

    God did not create many religions. He is a God, not of disorder, but of peace.

    Millions of people have died over the years because of man-made religion. None of those teachings came from God, but from the human need that some have to sin at the expense of others. But God points to a different view:

    James 1:27

    27 The form of worship (or, religion) that is clean and undefiled from the standpoint of our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their tribulation and to keep oneself without spot from the world.

    John 8:31, 32

    31 Then Jesus went on to say to the Jews who had believed him: “If you remain in my word, you are really my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

    Matthew 15:8, 9

    8 ‘This people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far removed from me. 9 It is in vain that they keep worshipping me, for they teach commands of men as doctrines.’”

    Jehovah created the religion of Jesus.

    • Ubar9 months agoReport

      Odd...
      If I google "the religion of Jesus" I get LOTS of conflicting info...
      A similar issue arises when I google "the religion of the only real god"...

    God does not create religions, Man creates religions. There is nothing difficult about everyone worshiping God the same way, except for the egos of men, and different men thinking they can do it better there way instead of someone else's way.

    God only knows Love, everything else is just an invention of the mind to have power over the body.... when the bible clearly states in many ways, you are not a body, but are a spirit first and foremost, flesh and blood cannot enter the Kingdom, yet, the physical manifestation of the Kingdom of God is within you, your physical eyes don't behold it, nor do your ears hear it....it is something within that is eternal and forever unchanged.....Religion is not of God, it belongs to the dreamer who dreams he is separated from Love just a little.

    You may be forgiven for wondering that if you don't actually know what religion is, from God's point of view. A.W. Tozer gave the explanation:

    "Genuine religion is in essence the response of created personalities to the creating personality, God. ‘And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.’ John 17:3 ...The continuous and unembarrassed interchange of love and thought between God and the soul of the redeemed person is the throbbing heart of New Testament religion." The Pursuit of God, A.W. Tozer, page 3 (Authentic Press)

    Once you discover what religion God approves of, you will see the man-made substitutes as the shams that they are.

    Humans create religions. I suspect if a God could exist, it would have no religions since when does common sense need to be structured into a religion of any kind.
