Religion


“Don’t become so involved in"religion” that you miss Christ.” (Life Application Study Bible, John 5:39-40)

“The accouterments of success seem so appealing that it’s pretty easy to fall for those less-thansubtle advertising ploys touting fancy foreign engineering or the architectural wonders of some luxury house. Even in church we sometimes focus on the trappings—lavish sanctuaries, fine pipe organs, plush carpeting. When materialism and personal pride fuse together, we’re all in grave danger of neglecting or even forgetting God!” (Don Wyrtzen)

“...religion, which is focused on self-fulfillment rather than repentance, has also been successfully removed from the explicitly religious context and remarketed with great success.” (Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick)

"Even in this present life, there is danger in the very concept of religion. It carries the suggestion that this is one more department of life, an extra department added to the economic, the social, the intellectual, the recreational, and all the rest.” (C. S. Lewis)

"...religion isn’t the same thing as a real relationship and because there is no way in the world that on our own we could work our way up to God’s approval…Church and religion are means to God, not ends” (Ryan Shook & Josh Shook, Andrea Palpant Dilley)
