First "the truth will set you free" is a cherry picked quote and not what it means at all.Yahoshua was addressing some religious Jews that "believed"
in him.The discourse ending up him saying they were not of Abraham but of their father who is the father of lies!
The crux of the cherry picked quote is
"If you abide in my word, you are TRULY my disciples, and you will KNOW the truth, and ...the truth will set you free.
Yahoshua said his words were spirit and life.Many believed when he spoke but he differentiated those that only believe and those that would
eventually know.Many believed in him then as many believe in him now but very few know Yahoshua..God is salvation/deliverance from death..not just
and that leads to your 2nd statement.You are correct following a religion by any method is not knowing God in the least nor can it set anyone free.It
is literally "antichrist"... a very misunderstood word and concept.It is NOT a person.....anti means "in place of" ..christ means the anointing (the
life/power of God)..religion is "in place of the anointing"...antichrist.
Everything is religion.It is "in place of" that which is real....the Kingdom of God.Religion is the wide road (it is like a vascular system ) every
path converges on and everyone is walking down to the wide gate of destruction (the heart). That is where belief will eventually be destroyed then
that leads to the narrow straight path to the narrow gate that opens into the infinite green pasture field...the heavens.The Kingdom of God within
Of course those are metaphors shadows of reality that can't be understood while in the valley of the shadow of death realm(the physical realm).My
point is.....yes religion is the great disease of mankind.No one can cure themselves of it.The vast majority don't even know they have it and believe
it is the cure for another disease!
Only known Truth is freedom.When it is The Truth the whole Truth and nothing but The Truth.It has nothing to do with "do what thy will".The Truth is
reality....life.It is a state of being not a dead noun.
