I'm tired of people hitting on "religion" as if it is a bad thing. Religion is the worship of the Almighty. It is gathering together as His people and hearing His Word. There is nothing wrong with the concept of religion. The problem is false religion. True religion flows from the Father in the Son through the Spirit. It is receiving God's grace in Word and Sacrament. Christian, if you have been hitting on religion, stop it! It's nothing but pandering to a jaded society that loves to criticize the church.
Check out the link to Pastor Jonathan Fisk's You Tube video and see his response to another You Tube video that knocks religion.
