We are not religious!
Religion is trying to get to God by following rules – and it doesn’t work! Jesus Christ saved His greatest criticism for religious people and we agree. One day Jesus was asked which was the most important of the thousands of rules that the religious people of His day followed. This is what He said:
“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and the most important commandment".
The second most important commandment is like it: "Love your neighbour as you love yourself." (Matthew 22:37-39)
Just imagine how the world would look if people followed those two rules for just one day! There would be no room for hatred, selfishness, war or poverty. We think that Jesus got it right – and they crucified Him!
Getting into a relationship with God is about following Jesus, not following rules!
