Religion vs. the Gospel

A list of thought provoking quotes:

Faith is not primarily a function of how you feel.  Faith is living out and believing what truth is despite what you feel.

Consumer-driven churches don't attract genuine seekers.  Real seekers look for reality, not tailor-made religion; truth, not a product.

No one lives up to even his or her own moral standards.  If we fall short of our own standards, what will we do before God's?

Jesus a recycled redeemer?  What other person shows up in historical documents with such regularity who later turned out to be rehashed myth?

You must have some idea what you are worshiping in order to worship God in a meaningful way.

You are more sinful than you could ever dare imagine and you are more loved and accepted than you could ever dare hope-at the same time.

The world’s peace is intermittent based on transitory circumstances.  Christian peace is constant based on the never changing love of God.

Religion makes us proud of what we have done.  The Gospel makes us proud of what Jesus has done.
