I loathe to write under the heading of "Religion", as the oft quoted myth "All religions have the same God" leads the seekers of our time down a road of destuction and dispair. So, I'll try to shine a little light, shall I?


BEWARE the word Religion


Beware the word religion

for unto death doth it lead

Beware the subtle trappings of man,

 for that's what religion means

The word with truth is oft confused,

Because in it's width and breadth

 Defines something God abhors,

 Although His name is used

Even evolution, claims religion as it's foe,

as far from earth as sky

But upon close examination,

they're both an elaborate lie

So don't look to religion,

cause there's too many to define

If God you seek,

go to His Son,

He alone can save mankind

And even the name of Jesus,

Many religions do distort

Go to His Word, it's more than sufficient,

 and It won't sell you short

Cause in His Holy Gospels,

 Matthew, Luke, Mark,and John,

He'll reveal all you really need,

 if for eternity you long

So, beware the word religion,

If God's kingdom do you seek

Just take his Word unabridged,

 And to your soul He'll speak

Then when you've learned the truth from a lie,

 and fellowship you want to find

Look for a church that stands on

 His Word,

and leaves man's titles

and traditions behind

Religion is man reaching out to God;
Christianity is God reaching out to man.
How I wish more folks understood this.
Thanks for explaining it, Art.
