This topic is not only for non christians, nor is it specifically aimed towards a christian audience. This is for everyone who walks the earth. Beware of the darkness of religion
Religion in a simple sense is a set of rules that are unwritten in the bible.

You see, going God’s way, there’s another choice you have to choose. This choice many people do not like to talk about and kind of push it in the back of their minds as if their life literally does not depend on it. That is the choice between religion or having a relationship. Continue God’s way by developing a relationship with Jesus Christ. Or take the path of religion by following these rules to hopefully gain a place with him through practices and practices. Self…
