Laying out the difference between being a true disciple of Christ, a truth seeker, versus a follower of religion, specifically the religion of Christianity.
Luke 5:38 “But new wine must be put into new wineskins, and both are preserved.
Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Contemplating the oneness of Truth while guided by the Voice of Truth produces the evolution or maturation of the soul, spirit and mind, so reality can begin to reflect Truth's immutable, divine attributes, which manifest the highest good for all. This blog reflects an ever-deepening understanding of the Truth a soul gains as its mind is renewed by Truth's pure Light.

I think one thing to remember here is that it’s important not to try and
Be the Holy spirit for others but making allowances for faults, which are
not a disqualification for a Relationship with God. The blood of Jesus
cleanses us from all sin, how then much more our faults. Love is the
fullfilling of the law for Righteousness to them who believe. Therefore,
believe for Truth, but also believe for Righteousness, for the Truth is
embodied in a Person, Jesus, therefore if you have him, you have the
Father, and the Spirit. Not the other way around. You cannot have the Father, and not have Jesus. But if you have Jesus, He is able to
keep you, and that not of yourselves.

Rachel… You make an important distinction here-religious activity is about duty and fundamentally, law-keeping… it is not about Relationship which is about a personal Spirit led, on going, intimate walk with The Lord. It is love which fulfills the law, not duty. An important distinction which you have well set out. Blessings!

Hi Martin, it is a very important distinction … because as you begin to dig in, you see how contrary the two really are. God wants us to know Him in spirit and truth .. and in spirit and truth we must come.
