God Hates Religion
Can God Hate Religion?
God hates religion? How is that possible, when it is presumed that religion is about God? No, not really! This is the general notion, but it is not necessarily true.
Religion is a man made institution; it is man's attempt to try and explain God; to try to find God. People kill and destroy lives and property in the name of religion because they do not know God.
God is Love!
God is love. He does not need our religion but wants to enter into a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with each of us. Every one of us can know God personally and have a relationship with Him. He wants to be your Father, and not just your Creator.
How Can One Find God?
If God hates religion, how then can one find Him? How can one have this personal relationship with Him? The truth is that God Himself knew how difficult it would be for man to try to find Him, so He made the effort to find us instead.
Love Came Down at Christmas
Love came down at Christmas, when Jesus was born to reconcile sinful man back to God.
Thus God made it so easy for us to connect with Him; for us to enter into a personal relationship with Him, through the death and resurrection of Jesus.
In fact, making this connection is as simple as A, B, C, D:
A – Admit you are a sinner. That is, agree your life has been a mess and that you need God to sort it out; for the Bible (God’s word) says we have all sinned and fallen below God’s expectations and that the consequence of sin is DEATH, eternal separation from God (Romans 3:10, 23; 6:23). So, whether any one believes it or not, the Bible says all men are sinners.
B – Believe that Jesus, God’s own Son paid the price to save you from your sins. God made a Way for the salvation of every one through the death of Christ on the Cross; and there is no other way (John 3:16; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 5:1-12)
C – Confess your sins to God and ask Him to forgive you. That is, tell God you’re sorry for all the bad things you’ve ever done. The Bible says, ‘if we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves …’ but if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness’ (1 John 1: 8-9; Isaiah 43:25)
D – Decide to make Him Lord (put Him in charge) of your life. That is, let Him take over your life from this minute. Give up your evil ways and accept the new life He is offering you. The Bible says “if anyone is in Christ, s(he) is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” (2 Corinthians 5:14-17).
If you are wondering about what to say or how to pray, you can say this simple prayer RIGHT NOW and believe it with all your heart:
“Dear Lord Jesus, I do realise that I am a sinner and that I cannot save myself. I thank you for taking the punishment for my sins. I’m sorry for every sin I’ve committed and ask you to forgive me. Wash me with your precious blood, and make me clean within. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. I gladly receive you as my Lord and Saviour”. Amen.
If you have prayed this simple prayer, and believe it with your whole heart, be rest assured that God has heard your prayer and forgiven all your sins. Your old life is gone; you’re now a brand new person, a member of God’s holy family.
