religion...Christianity




James 1:26-27  if anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless. Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.


This verse is quite explanitatory, Christianity these days seems to be all about music and clothing lines, recycling the same christians and artists at the same concerts and shows, what ever happend to doing what the scriptures said in Jamed 1:27 ...looking after the poor, the orphaned, the widowed..... christinaity is more than  this.


I'm afraid, when most people think of religion, they do not think of God the Father. They do not think first of Him and the spiritual blessings He provides in Christ. They think of church stuff (people, groups, organizations, buildings and movements). We are strongly influenced by the religious culture of our time - which is marked by denominations, churches, organizations, human tradition and ritual. It will be to our eternal advantage to identify religion first with God. Right religion is man's response to Him. When man's response is in keeping with His instructions and is expressive of
faith in His Son - then you have "pure and undefiled religion." Anything else is vain.



We as christians need to fix up!!
