“There are only two religions one of do and one of done, that’s the demarcation.”
Simple and yet profound, man’s religion is performance based, and like the corporate world, you must climb a ladder by your own merit to get to the top. Christianity on the other hand is about a God who in His mercy pitied His enemies and sent forth His son Jesus Christ, born of a woman, born under the Law to redeem those who stood cursed and condemned by their transgression of the Law, and in God’s condemning sin in Christ, man now stands reconciled and at peace with God. There is no ladder we must climb to bring us closer to God, for Jesus Christ is the Way, and by His blood bought pardon we now “…belong to Christ Jesus. Though you once were far away from God, now you have been brought near to him because of the blood of Christ.” Eph 2:13
The religion of man says, “Do this, don’t touch that, pray this much”, but Christianity cries out, “It is Finished!” Hallelujah, Amen.
