Religion vs “The Faith”.

leave a comment »


The difference between a true Christian and one who is only a religious Christian is that religion talks “about” God.  The true Christian will find their feet taking them right into the consuming fire of God’s presence.   While the religious recite the words of others, “The Faith” causes us to utter the words of the Holy Spirit as we seek His beautiful face.

Religion speaks about the experiences of those who have tasted the actual presence of God.  Much like the reading of a true story can inspire the reader, so these people find inspiration from the testimony of those who experience His Holy presence.  But “The Faith” is not like that.  “The Faith” is built by presenting one’s self to the very eyes of God.  Submitting to the judgment of God in every nook and cranny of one’s life. 

There is a serious and distinct difference between religion and faith.  And it is wise to seek the latter.  The world chides God’s people because of the former.  Consider, with sobriety, which you are.  If you are in “The Faith”, you know it.  If you’re only playing Christian, you know it.  Every man stands before the Lord God of Eternity, naked and laid bare.  Everything we are is plain to God.  Why would you play with eternity?  This is a place of testing.  Every heart will be tested.  And every heart will be judged according to God’s Holy judgment.  Take seriously what He says.  There is nothing trivial about the judgment of God.

By His Grace.
