Q: Dear Sir, why are you so religious? God isn’t religious. Religious people killed the son of God and you my friend, are an object of division. Stop being so self-righteous and follow Jesus without adding your super Religious ways.
A: I quote James the apostle saying, “What God the Father considers to be pure and genuine religion is this: to take care of orphans and widows in their suffering and to keep oneself from being corrupted by the world” –James 1:27
The word religion is mention three times in the bible in the Greek language “thrēskeia” which means in our tongue worshipping, service and in some cases it simple means to be discipline. Paul wrote, to the Colossians church “Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping “thrēskeia” of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind…
In this we can all understand that there is a good religion and there are bad religions. However we are endowed to find out through the scriptures whether God is happy with either one, and according to the apostle, God the Father considers pure and genuine religion as taking care of orphans and widows in their suffering and keeping one-self from being corrupted by the world. With that said, for anyone to claim God doesn’t care about Religion or Religious people prove not everyone reads their bibles.
There is a “PURE” and “GENUINE” religion in the sight of God, and that religion is founded on having “LOVE” for our fellow neighbors and keeping ourselves holy in this present world. I am often accused of being super religious, or over religious because I refuse to be corrupted by the world through it detractions of entertainment, lust and pride. But as long as I continue to take care of orphans and widows (loving my neighbors) in their suffering and keep myself from being corrupted by the world my religion is pure and holy before God.
On another note I would agree that the religious people of Jesus day did kill him. However, obviously their religion wasn’t pure, holy or accepted of God just from your statement “They killed the son of God”. Pure and holy religion teaches one to love their neighbors.
