Religion - Religious - And Law

There are more Religions in the world now than there have ever been - There are hundreds of different Religions in India and Africa.

There are several hundred Religions in the United States - Most people do - {NOT} - permit their Religion to interfere with their sinning - Even if they desired otherwise - Religion could - {NOT} - keep them from sinning.

Although Religious sinners are restrained from certain immoral habits - there is - {NO} - cure for sin.

Religious endeavors frequently lead to - {Self Righteousness} - which is as much sin as is adultery or drunkenness or stealing.

Sin is human weakness - sin is a - {Short-coming} - missing the mark - But what is that mark??? - What does it mean to come short?

Every intelligent soul - whether Religious or not - acknowledges that the only adequate - perfect code of ethics - by which a thought or word or deed can be judged right or wrong - is the Law - which was given to Israel 3500 years ago - the Ten Commandments.

NO intelligent soul will think of challenging the perfection of that perfect Law - The one who would accept that challenge to perfectly obey that - {Perfect Law} - would display profound Stupidity.

The Greatest of all the Commandments contained in the Law was stated by Christ - the only One who ever perfectly kept all Ten of them - {Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart - might - strength and soul - and thy neighbor as thyself}.

If this is the Greatest of - {ALL} - the Commandments - and sin is the Transgression of the Law - then the Greatest sin is to transgress the - {Greatest Commandment}.

{All are guilty before God} - {By the Law is the knowledge of sin} - {By the Law let every mouth be stopped and let all the world become guilty before God}.

All religions - {except one} - followed by men during the past 6000 years - were established by a Very Religious Creature who is accused of deceiving the whole world - He is called - {the Prince of the world} - {the god of this age} - It is truthfully said concerning him that he is transformed into an angel of light.

The one exception is the Religion that God gave to Israel at the time He gave His people the Ten Commandments - {Thou shalt} - {Thou shalt not} - was the program for Israel for 1500 years.

It was under that Law that the - {Sinless Christ} - was made - He came to earth and lived among His people - He lived their Religion and kept the - {Perfect Law} - without offending in one point.

In spite of what Christ did - His own people had Him nailed to the cross - They were - {Religious Law Keepers} - and they were zealous concerning the Law - but they killed their - {Messiah} - {the Prince of Life}.

Note what became of their Religion:

{Colossians 2:14} - Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances - that was against us - which was contrary to us - and took it out of the way - nailing it to His cross.

{Galatians 3:13} - Christ hath redeemed us from the - {Curse] - of the law - being made a - {Curse} - for us - for it is written - {Curseth} - is every one that hangeth on a tree.

{Hebrews 7:19} - For the Law made - {Nothing} - perfect - but the bringing in of the better hope did - by the which we draw nigh unto God.

{Romans 10:4} - For Christ is the end of the Law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

Christ is - {The End OF The Law} - for righteousness.

The Law and Religion were inseparably united - The Lord Jesus Christ on the cross brought Law and Religion to an end.

God’s declaration is - the Law has been abolished - sin has been put away - Christ hath abolished death - {2 Timothy 1:10}.

The sacrifices of shed blood - under the Law - took care of the sins of the Lawbreakers until Christ went to Calvary to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.

Christ died to save - {Religious sinners from Religion} - as well as from sin - Christ has removed - {ALL} - Religion from His spiritual program - declaring that Christ Jesus is - {Our Righteousness} - {1 Corinthians 1:30} - Christ's Righteousness is - {ALL} - that is required to receive your Passport to Heaven.

There is - {NOT} - one piece of Righteousness in Religion - Joining a Denominational church - {Never} - saved any sinner.

There will be - {NO} - Religious people in Heaven - Christ is the end of Religion for Righteousness to every one that believeth.

Christ is - {Our Righteousness} - Christ is the world’s urgent need to avoid the - {Second Death} - Believers are accepted and complete in Christ - That's what the Father said.

 Receive Christ as your Saviour right now by believing by - {FAITH} - {1 Corinthians 15:1-4} - Remember, tomorrow is - {NOT} - promised.
