People use religion as a stumbling block instead of a stepping stone,to seek God for themselves,to know Him up close and personal. However,sooner or later they will all run out of excuses,they will have to read the word of God to know the truth about God. Lets look at why people consider religion a stumbling block,it’s because everyone is in search of truth,and people are divided on issues,policies,food,the day to worship,and a variety of issues,but that’s the enemies scheme to divide and conquer us ,thus reducing us to his standards,which will ultimately leads to our demise. The truth is all the answers to all the issues,questions,and everything else is in the Bible,the problem is how are you reading it ? In the natural or Spiritual,with man’s knowledge and intellect or from the Holy Spirit,which Jesus says, in John 14:26 “But the comforter,who is the Holy Spirit,whom the Father will send in my Name,He shall teach you all things,and bring all things to your remembrance,whatever I have said unto you”. Listen to what 1Corinthians2:14 says,”But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God;for they are foolishness unto Him,neither can he know them,because they are spiritually discerned”. This is the reason why their are so many religions,which are considered as stumbling blocks,to confuse the massive,because,of enticing words of man’s wisdom. The apostle Paul said,in 1 Corinthians 2:4-5 “And my speech and my preaching were not with enticing words of man’s wisdom,but in the demonstration of the Spirit and of power,that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men,but in the power of God”. So who are you listening to God or men,to hear from Him you must read the Bible. Here is what the Bible says : For there is one God ,and one mediator between God and men,the man,Christ Jesus,who gave Himself a ransom for all,to be testified in due time”. No where in there does it say we are or will be saved by religion,or denomination affiliation. Therefore,how will religion save you ,when Jesus is the way,the truth,and the giver of eternal life,and no one goes to our Heavenly Father without going through Him,which is found in John 14:6. Lets set the record straight,John 3:16 says,”For God so loved the world,that He gave His only begotten Son,that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. Then Colossians3:11 says,”Where there is neither Greek nor Jew,circumcision nor uncircumcision,barbarian,Scythian,bond nor free,but Christ is all,and in all”. So what will be your excuse,when you die,or Jesus return? As Romans 14:12 says,”So,then,every one of us shall give account of himself to God”.
