The Death of Religion
Religion, not in the general sense, but in the sense of salvation through moral effort, is the “yeast of the Pharisees” that Jesus warns us of in the gospels. For the next few months, we will be looking at the death religion brings to the human soul and the death of religion through the cross. This series will be looking at the saving power of the gospel through the lens of Jesus’ interactions with his enemies. Their reactions and interactions with Jesus gives us window into His heart and ours as well. In these stories we are able to see our own propensity to wander and grace to turn back to God.
