The Path of Religion or the Path of Grace...Choose the One you will Follow.
Religion teaches that Christ is the Gate and that is 100% true. Though it mouths that Jesus is also The Way, it lives and breathes as if Religion itself is The Way and have deceived multitudes into believing that deception to be truth. They would have people to enter the gate by Grace then instead of following Jesus...the path to holiness, they would have you follow Religion...as the path to holiness! Instead of living in the freedom that Christ brings, people live in the bondage of religion thinking that they are living in the freedom of Christ.
To move fully into the freedom of Christ we have to walk in the Path...Jesus Christ...and refuse to walk the path of Religion. Many people have accepted Jesus as their “personal Savior only to make Religion their Lord. Receiving Jesus as Savior without receiving Him as Lord is the deception of Religion that the vast majority of believers have accepted, and are living as if it is truth. This religious phenomenon veils the eternal purpose of God, not only for the Community of the Redeemed, it also blinds us to the eternal purpose of God for the Community of Humanity.
When people walk through the Gate of Salvation and then travel the Path of Religion to maintain that Salvation they put themselves in BONDAGE and place themselves behind the prison bars of the jail of the religious system. Their Salvation is authored by Jesus but they are trying to perfect if by following the Path of man-made Religion. People become so taken up in their eternal destination being heaven, they forfeit their destiny of the purpose of God for their living the realization of the Christ life in the “here and now.” They are satisfied to enter haven at the end of their living without really living in the Kingdom of God in their earthly living.
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there be many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to Life, and there are few who find it.” Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ, the Gate offers people salvation...freedom from the judgement of sin.
Jesus Christ the Grace Path gives people power over the power of sin and the taskmaster of Religion.
Believers must move beyond Jesus as the Gate and follow Jesus along the Grace Path of FREEDOM from the bondage of Religion to Grace's Freedom by following Jesus the Path.
