Religion

Some worship their leader, or their religion, instead of God. Others just find it easier to believe whatever they're told to believe.

Even scripture bears record that God doesn't always answerrepparttar same way. He decides matters based uponrepparttar 126895 heart and those He chose were often misfits who didn't have allrepparttar 126896 skills but would depend upon Him. When people are spiritually held captive from serving God, it isn't God's doing. There's a lot of Pharaoh's out there.

Pure religion and undefiled before God andrepparttar 126897 Father is this, To visitrepparttar 126898 fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted fromrepparttar 126899 world, Ja. 1:27.

So, unless our religion is pure and completely undefiled, maybe we need to be listening for God instead of telling Him what He believes.

Perhaps it would help us all to consider that anytime we are not listening forrepparttar 126900 Spirit, walking inrepparttar 126901 Spirit, followingrepparttar 126902 Spirit - we are sitting on God's throne.

Jesus preachedrepparttar 126903 Kingdom of God, not Christianity.

Additionally, when someone speaks inrepparttar 126897 Spirit touching your spirit ... you can believe God, knowing He dwells within them and you.
