    Religion is the set of doctrines put in place by men to establish a group of likeminded followers of their teachings of what they call truth


    you can see this in all the different denominations the Baptists believe one thing the Pentecostals another and so on. No offence to either of these denominations I am just using them as an example of different doctrines.


    Each one will claim they have a personal relationship with God, but I have to ask if they all have a relationship with the one and only creator the great I AM. Why is all there doctrine so different?


    After the messiah came and carried out his devine calling he gave us a direct connectin with God the creator through the holy spirit.


    Our personal relationship is our ability to have God the Father as our own father and just as with our fathers here on earth we can be with the creator. We can listen and he will guide us we can ask and he will answer us but you must be obedient to him when he speaks or he will become somewhat distant until you humble yourself to his desire for you just like how our fathers here on earth can be once you establish a strong relationship with him you will have little need of man’s teachings concerning the father in heaven because he will teach you through the spirit himself.


    read this from the holy bible         John 14: 15-20


    Most main stream religious zealots will condemn me for the word I just said that is because the spirit of religion has taken control of all of main stream religion and the pastors of such places depend on the sheep for a paycheck week in and week out. I on the other hand have refused to take a pay check and any monies I am given go into the hands of people who really need it the messiah was not paid on earth for his ministry and he paid the highest price for it so I don’t feel justified in profiting off of service to God.

    The bible is not the only book about God. Why don't you read from another religions book while you ask others to drop theirs and read yours. What's fair is fair.

    one involves knowing christ the other ?

    The other would be knowing God (that's the relationship one). Christ would be the religious one.

    Do we understand now?

    Do we understand that everyone is not going to agree..........................

    Religion is a formal institution with a defined philsophy. And a relationship in God is just that, it's personal to the individual and doesn't necessarily require the formality of religion.

    YOU CAN'T HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD WITHOUT THE SON(JESUS) ,THIS IS THE ULTIMATE STEP TO HAVING A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FATHER.

    False! I have a relationship with God. I've stood in his light and love and felt it fill me and I do not follow Jesus. God is not selective and God is not religious. Find Him inside yourself, not in a book or religion.

    ""I have a relationship with God...
