I've always heard that religion was something manmade and something that God doesn't like. Christians are called followers of Christ or Christlike. Didn't God have alot of rituals or a set pattern of doing things in the old testiment, like all the different ways of sacrafices and how the priests were to wash and stuff. I don't think that all churches are christian. Satanist have churches and so do Scientologists.

Youre rite,shadow.I believe as well that religion and christian are
different.Im of no religion nor agree with any that i know of.Some of the rituals in the old testament were replaced with Jesus when he rose again.Certain ritiuls remained like passover and breaking of bread and such.
Alot of religions have core beliefs which are the same as chrsitian beliefs but its the practices and other things they teach that arnt biblical that makes them different.

Jesus loves me.Ok,he loves u too.

The Passover became Easter please read my article in http://www.easterau.com
But you are right that religion is different to Christianity. Religion is mans way, Christianity is God's way. It's either the bible or mans oppinions that will govern us.

Look God ways are different to our thinking, world have many religions not always serve the purpose of God's creation. when we say religion its also to do with culture, family values,law - decipline. So, when i see someone say religion i see many problems waiting through the word religion we have been spiritully blinded.

Christianity is relationship with God, I agree there are many denomination they are no difference to any other religions. True relationship with Heaven person have to feel the presence of God, anoiting that will separate that person from the worldly way into spritual blessing. changes will happen depends on that person how much he/she allow God to bless his life. when a person surrender to God worldly character(evil) leaves (Galatians 5:19), when the old leaves transformation take place what we call deliverance once the person delivered set free from bondages that person becomes new will start please God through his Good character (Galatians 5:22) the fruit of the sprit - thats show us the true meaning of Born again.

So, religion is for the World, God only like the relationship that comes through calling from God, once God mercy come up on someone's life that person will obey and listen to God's ways. The Holy Sprit will prepare that person for God's Glory.

Amen. Most religions are opposed to God and Jesus. True christianity is a life changing miracle that occurs in each individual belivers heart, not just some church role or membership.

Absoutely right! Religion is man's attempt to reach God! Faith is God's attempt to reach man! " But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto faith which should afterwards be revealed." (Gal 3:23)

Like the law of Moses, "religion" says, "If I have more 'good works than bad, I'll go to Heaven." Faith says, "It is finished, "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:" (Jn 1:12)

No! Not all churches are "christian". Not all so-called christian churches teach in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jehovah's Witnesses DO NOT believe in the "bodily resurrection" of Jesus Christ; there, they are NOT christian's in a biblical sense. There are also other so-called denomiation in christiandom who reject the fundalmental truths of the "gospel". (1 Cor 15:1-6)
