Dead Religion

A religion with no cross or blood
is a dead religion that is useless and vain
It makes people think they are good,
but to their sin they are still chained

Satan uses religion to keep men's minds
blind to their sin
They see no need to repent
since in their own eyes they have no sin within

Some people like to quote their
perceived religious figures
instead of believing the Word of God
that says "Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures"

A dead religion is a religion that has
no hope beyond the grave,
but there is the blessed assurance of eternal life
when you trust Jesus to forgive your sins and save

Heaven and Hell
are not something you conjure up in your mind
The bible clearly states
they are places you go, as you will find

The heaven where I am going
will be my eternal dwelling place,
not because of anything good I've done
but because I trusted Jesus to saved me by his grace

It's only through the blood of Jesus
that our sins could be atoned for
So when we come to death's valley, which all must do,
we may claim the precious blood and enter heaven's door

Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.

Hebrews 9:27 For it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.

Revelation 19:1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying Alleluia;
Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God.

Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Indeed, the labels need to go, and follow that which is sacred and true. xx

thank you cindy...thiss can't be put before us enough. religion and religous are both such mistakenly used and understood words by most of us...your second verse says it all to me.

i fear for ron's soul and wish he could find the comfort that only comes from a reltionship wit Jesus...nice work

You speak of dead religion. Anyone who blindly follows religious beliefs has a mind that has lost its critical thinking. Hither that critical thinking? Did it go to heaven when it died?
