Religious Tyranny


It does have to be said that Jesus Christ was never one to sell soft soap. On one occasion He stated, when He was speaking about the opposition His followers were going to receive at the hands of their enemies, ‘They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service’.


One truth, amongst others, which comes through here, is that religious zeal is no substitute for religious knowledge. This is a timely truth for today as it becomes increasingly common for men to blow themselves up and kill others in the name of their religion.


For most of us wrong religion will not manifest itself in such a dramatic fashion but, nonetheless, it is critically important to make sure that we are getting our religious knowledge from the right source. Ultimately there is only one true source- the Bible. Make sure that you are drinking from that fountain rather than swallowing wholesale the fine-sounding thoughts of men.
