That’s just the thing. I don’t think that any true Christian would be able to separate themselves from their “religion.” That’s the difference between a religion and Christianity…true, real, it seeps out of your pores and invades your every thought, kind of Christianity. That’s because it’s not a religion at all…it’s a life, a full and complete life…and everything else is just an action, process, or a past-time. Anyone who has the Holy Spirit in their hearts knows that they have been made a completely new creature, and you cannot separate that away from yourself again. It’s permanent. People may try (although, I really question whether they were genuinely saved in the first place if they try to leave) but once it’s there, it’s there…and you can’t change that. For those of you who may read this just because it’s an answer to a Featured Question…you might not understand. The world would like us to believe that we can shimmy ourselves down to just a human being with any prejudices or tendencies…but that’s ridiculous. We might be able to step way from our race, from our family, from our education, and job…but religion…no, not just religion. Some people might be able to separate themselves from their religion…but Christians…I urge you to examine what you call your faith, because if you could see yourself without it, there’s a problem. Being a child of God makes you a citizen of a new kingdom, the kingdom of heaven, and nothing on earth really matters anymore. It doesn’t matter what your family is like, your education, race, and job is…only your relationship with the Creator God through His precious Son…and sharing that with as many people as you can in your short, short life on erth.
I just answered this Featured Question; you can answer it too!
