Hodgepodge Religion

Description

Don't be a "faith phony." With Jesus, it's all or nothing!

"Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world." - 1 John 4:1

In today’s world, it seems quite popular to have a hodgepodge of religious beliefs – usually some homage to God, sometimes a little dose of Jesus (He was, after all, a great teacher), a little pinch of Buddha, a little Mohammed here and a little New Age thought there. It makes you sound, well…so spiritual. And when someone says, “Oh, I’m a very spiritual person,” you have absolutely no idea what they really mean.

But, you see, it’s all fundamentally dishonest. It is an insult to each religion, for it is like spiritual looting – a classic refashioning of God into your own chic image that fits your needs. And it is a reminder of the many intellectual airheads today. Make a decision, for crying out loud! But don’t be a phony for every faith. These religions don’t teach the same things, and they certainly don’t practice the same things.

Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, the Life. No one comes to the Father but through me.” Either He lied, was terribly insane – or He is who He said He is. This is in direct conflict with every other religion. With Him, it’s all or nothing. I believe He is the truth about God.

Make a decision about Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, or whomever. But don’t insult them all with this airhead, pseudo-sophisticated practice of hodgepodge religion.
