I wouldn't dream of committing obvious sins like murder,adultery,getting drunk and robbing a bank.

I am a Christian, a serious, sold out, radical, separate type. I think the enemy knows this about me and many of those I fellowship with so he changes his tactics. He doesn't try to tempt me with blatant sin so he will try to get me to go overboard in other areas. Sometimes even good noble areas of Christian service and love.

Perhaps the enemy will get me so busy working with my home and family I forget about God. You know some people I know turn their child training into a religion. They are so serious about family and the convictions God has given them concerning the family they elevate their burden for a Godly family above God Himself.

Martha was so busy serving Jesus she missed out on...well...Jesus Himself.

Peter was so zealous and religious that Jesus called him Satan,rebuked him and withdrew His grace so that Peter would know that fleshly efforts don't work.

Eve was seeking knowledge about God when she sinned...seemed noble enough didn't it?

Paul said he considered all of his religious efforts and attainments to be dung.

Catholics worship the cross and Mary. They worship religion itself. I'm afraid Catholics are not the only ones worshipping a religion.

Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh? (Galatians 3:3; ESV)


  1. Hello there!

    I pop by your blog some times through the One Stop for Apostolic Blogging links. I really enjoyed reading this post. Wow! Something I've had on my mind for a very long time, but couldn't quite get the words together. Very well put and honest.

    Take care & God bless ~ Rachel

  2. Thanks for the comment Rachel! I tried to check out your blog but I think it is set to private. Let me know if you are allowing new readers.

    Again, thanks for the comment. Come back anytime.

    I'll add you to my readers list.

  4. This Scripture should makes us all stop and re-evaluate. No, none of us would commit outright, obvious sin. But this "trend" is showing up and many are deceived. Lack of depth... ?
