There are so many religions, so many rules; so many people looking to fill a spiritual void.
I spoke to a beautiful woman who was raised in a Christian home, but saw so much ill with the church that she has sought out to find truth elsewhere. She’s a Diamond seeking to be Unveiled. She leans towards RasTafari. I’ve read about this and find that they too are people seeking truth.
Woe, Christians… don’t get shocked that I say that. Let’s agree on this one thing, we the ‘Christians’ in many ways have made the name of Jesus look bad with our own conduct. Many have said and will continue to say, “if that’s what a Christian looks like, I want no part of it.” So sad! Funny that Christ came to do away with the groups that distorted the truth for personal gain.
I follow Christ, the one who demonstrated love, peace, kindness, gentleness, forgiveness and rebuked the rule makers and dictators that had no power within themselves to rule.
Don't seek God in a religious kind of way... seek Him, seek Jesus, seek His Spirit in a genuine, humble, quiet kind of way. Forget all the 'religious' stuff. Look to His Word and ask Him to show Himself to you personally, individually, without the Pharasees and Saducees hovering over your thoughts. Give Him your heart and meditation without pollution. Once you fall in love with Jesus... outside of the box.... you will never again want to do anything that will hurt Him or hurt yourself.
Please comment below I'm interested to know what religious practice are you most uncomfortable with?
