Religion is ..what you "believe"...and have "faith in.In Greek(The New Testament being the main source of this Greek definition) they are the verb
pisteuo and the noun pistis.Everything mankind does is based in belief of faith.Everyone is religious...it is inescapable ...but not fatal.
Organized religion is methodical and has doctrines yet still everyone has their own "religion". The greatest grand delusion is that religion is
believing and having faith in the creator God...when in fact all religion is diametrically opposed to God.It is literally "your"religion" what you
believe in and "the God" is you...."My God"
That is the great,great grand delusion ...no one is God ..though some believe they are or can obtain "Godhood" by religion.Many of the other
"believers"(the many are called) will vehemently deny`this "My God' religion .Some (many) will say they are so and so(example.. Christians) and
Christianity is not a religion but a relationship....More grand grand delusion.
There are those that have no belief in a God or organized religion(agnostic,atheist, etc) and again it is just another form of "belief" through faith
in something that is always centered in themselves.It is inescapable..... mankind is born religious by nature.
The Good news is... everyone will be cured of it ...by no choice or work of their own(most hate that!!).The reality and fact is there is a creator God
and God alone IS doing everything for and to us.Religion is not the cure for being sinful...being religious is sin...falling short of the mark of
perfection(maturity)....another metaphor..."eating" the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil.
All religion will be destroyed by God(BY GOD!!!). Everyone is walking "their" path of life (metaphor for...religion!)Their path is part of the wide
road(it is like a vascular system and is all connected).The wide road leads to the gate of destruction (the heart) where religion begins to be
destroyed which is called salvation .It's a process not an event..no one is or ever will be "saved" past tense.Salvation is growing IN maturity and
all growth is CAUSED by God.
When religion is destroyed you enter onto the narrow straight path that leads to the narrow gate that enters in the infinite green pasture field IN
your midst...The Kingdom of God...which comes without observation and is neither here nor there but IN your midst)...the Knowing of God.
There is no faith in the Kingdom of God only knowing.That is not the end and everything is perfect afterwards.It is the beginning of the beginning.It
is all Growing into the Kingdom of God.ALL will enter into the Kingdom of God in their "own" order which is ordained 100% by God.
Religion is a natural part of the process yet it is diametrically opposed to God (as that truth is diametrically opposed to the many are called
logic). We first come to believe in God through faith.(yes ....everyone will believe in the "Creator God") the ultimate purpose is to Know God.
The good news is God is doing it all.Working his will (not ours) according to Gods purposes not ours.Mankind would be satisfied in the "safety" of
their "religion",yet God will not let them.There is no choice but Gods....perfection.This is the crux that all religion rejects.That God is sovereign
and mans mythical free will has no say so in anything.The myth of the free will of mankind is the greatest of all delusions that must and Will be
overcome(the great destruction at the wide gate)
Mankind has NO idea whom they are dealing with in the Creator God.Mankind's deepest imagination cannot even perceive the slightest Truth about
God...thank God we don't have to!!...Imagine...no religion.....
