Religion is how man approaches God in worship, activity, and tradition. In Christianity man doesn’t approach God or ever search for God. In Christianity God is found within the heart, soul, and conscience and therefore cleansed from sin by Christ.
Religion doesn’t cleanse man from sin but requires human activity. Christianity cleanses man from sin out of faith, belief, and trust in the activity of Christ. Cleansing is instantaneous! Big difference between human religious activity and the redemptive activity of Christ within the human soul! Religion is the operation of man. Christianity is the operation of the Spirit of God.
Religion is ever seeking. Christianity is a new found heart and life. Religion is an attempt to find. Christianity is the actual experience of a morally changed heart and life. Big difference between religion and Christianity!
There are perhaps 4000 religions (or more) in the world. Only (1) Christianity. The Gospel about a Savior that bled and died for man’s personal sins is spreading around the globe. Christianity is not to be missed, overlooked, or mistaken to be religion. Christianity can be received in your home, on the street, in a jail cell, in a business office, in school, or even remote parts of the world where a Savior is made known to cleanse an evil heart from sin. The person of Christ can clear the conscience from guilt caused from sin.
The Grace of God “flows”from Christianity. Be a partaker of Christ and experience the inward moral change that no religion in the world can offer. Yes, my brothers and sisters Christianity and religion differ like night and day. Find Christ while there is time. Experience love and forgiveness that religion cannot provide. Touch Christ as He touches you. Let the world know, Jesus lives…glory He lives. The God of your Salvation is alive…and within. Blessed be the name of Christ! Blessed be the name of Christ! Blessed be the name of Christianity that is different from all religions. Reason? Jesus lives.
