What would you rather have: religion or relationship? * Discover what Jesus really taught * Work on your relationship with God * Embrace God's purpose and plan for your life * Understand love ... not law Jesus taught relationship, not religion. Religion informed me of set patterns and procedures. Frankly, religion limited the power and movement of God in my life. I was bound by my religious practices and could not see beyond past experiences. I believe that many religious practices and beliefs have been more damaging than healing in this world. Wars and crusades have been fought, and people have been hunted, killed, and relegated to slavery ... all in the name of religion. Some of the doctrine was birthed from a sincere heart, desiring to do what they felt at the time was right; on the other hand, much religion was birthed from the efforts of men to control others and to engender for themselves power, authority, and what they considered "godly." Faith that is real and true begins with a desire to build a relationship with God and not with an attitude of obligation and duty. When we try to please God while motivated by fear and guilt, we are in bondage; however, fear, shame, and guilt are not healthy motivators of relationship ... love is.
