There is a trend among Christians to say that their particular flavor of faith isn’t a religion. It is a relationship with Jesus.
I’m not going to argue the validity of that belief. Others have done that better than I. In fact, I’m going to grant them that. I agree with you.
Christianity is not a religion. It is a relationship with Jesus.
I’m with you all the way. Starting now your relationship will no longer have tax exempt churches. Your relationship counselors will no longer be on the payroll of the US Military. We will remove reference to your relationship from our currency and our pledge. The status of your relationship will no longer be a topic for a monologue before a government meeting or sporting event.
The legal and civil protections afforded to Muslims, Buddhists, Jains, and Scientologists are now forfeited by your and your relationship.
Are you on board with that, too? Are you willing to live by your own assertion?0
