Today I want to encourage you not to follow a religion, but to follow Jesus. Religion is a man-made system of serving or worshipping God. Jesus never came to start a religion; He came to re-build the relationship that we had lost with God because of our sin. You see in the beginning, Adam and Eve, before they sinned, had a intimate relationship with God. I can imagine that they hanged out together, dined together and probably even played together. Playing ultimate frisby with the angels as well. hahhaa. My imagination 😛
However, after that they had disobeyed God, they could no longer remain in Eden. Life became tougher and a lot of things were affected by that one decision. But the most important thing that changed was the relationship that they had with God. God being holy could no longer commune with them they way He used to. And God new that if He left us in this fallen condition, we would all be lost.
This is why Jesus came: to repair this broken relationship between us and God. So think of Christianity as a relationship and not a religion.
Religion tells you to do this and that, but in the relationship with God you obey and live a life that is pleasing to God out of love and not just because its the law and that is the system that you have to follow. Jesus wants us to follow Him.
