Religion- How It Doesn't Save

Colossians 3:11
Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.

Religion is completely man made. People focus on following their religion- Instead of following God's ways.

1 John 2:1-29
My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: ...

Religion doesn't show your love for the Lord. It doesn't save you, or guarantee anything. It's a way to censor the Lord. It's a way to hide the truth... Jesus. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. If you already know that- Why are you Christian? Catholic? Jewish? Atheist?
Jesus is the only way. NOT religion.

1 Peter 2:24-
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.

It's not a religion- It's a relationship with Jesus Christ, and him only...
