    Man can believe whatever he wants re: religion! His "opinion" (def) does not matter. ONLY GOD'S!

    Who should we obey, "Man or God?"

    The "religions" you mentioned are "IDOLS" according to GOD!

    "IF" a "CHRIST FOLLOWER" (disciple), Jm 1:27=religion

    Being a Christian is not keeping the ten commandments (Gal 3:24=Child in Christ)!

    Christian=Christ Follower or living under New Covenant AFTER Acts 1 (Day of Pentecost)!

    What does GOD SAY re: "religion?"

    ONLY "positive" WORD re: "religion" in James 1:26-27 which is "WORKS!"

    BUT WHO CARES, "man" has spoken!

    Closer than most! Religion (as defined by Webster or the world) conflicts with GOD'S def of religion is the point! Who would we rather believe man or GOD?

    Yes, "Being a Christian (JESUS never used for it was derrog term by unblvrs) is abiding..."

    Tess: Either u blv in GOD or not! His def is not "Check the dictionary!"

    GOD told us NOT to "Lean to OUR OWN (man's) understanding" (Prov 3:5)!

    BUT WHO CARES what GOD says (Jm 1:27=WORKS), "Man" has spoken!

    Why doesn't ANYONE CARE WHAT GOD SAYS re: RELIGION? I keep seeing "man's" interpretation, definition, perception, etc, but NO ONE goes to WORD (GOD)! Don't u see the problem? NO ONE CARES WHAT GOD SAYS! Jm 1:27)

    Spoken like a TRUE RELIGIOUS FANATIC! Who cares how "the world" defines religion? GOD HATES RELIGION! Matt 23:23 says RELIGION has "...omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy and faith: these ought ye to have done.."

    Choose!

    The Scribes & Pharisees were devoutly RELIGIOUS who made "own interpretation" and followed "law" (Matt 23:23) as world does today vs what IS WRITTEN!

    We CURRENTLY live under NC "OBSERVING disciples" (Matt 28:20); Eph 2:20=RT "foundation" I Cor 1

    "WORKS," ie love thy neighbor (treat as u want to be treated), visit the fatherless & widows.." (Jm 1:27), is GOD'S def of Religion, but WHO CARES!

    Whereas, "Christianity" is a Christ-Follower or Disciple of Christ!

    Still "Leaning to man's understanding?" How shallow! Comparing "Spiritual" thgs to "Carnal" will continue to hinder your understanding! Christianity is a SPIRITUAL journey (Jn 4:24)! W/O, 1 has NO UNDERSTANDING!

    "No diff?"

    Religion="Your" Dead Works (Eph 2:8-9)!

    Christian="Holy Spirit" (aka JESUS) Works (Jn 14:26;16:13)!

    Can't you all "understand" GOD'S def of "religion" is not as the "world's" (Jm 1:27)?

    Exd 20:3 "No other god!"

    "U have to be religious?" Who told u that? Not Jm 1:27 (GOD)!

    BUT WHO CARES?

    "MAN" has spoken!

    "Christian" means following "The Gospel of Christ" (Gal 1:6-9)! Who does that?

    "Religion" a "man-made" belief system in a god!

    WORD (GOD) has given definition of "religion" but MOST continue to give "man's" definition. Who would u rather please "man" or GOD? (Acts 5:29)

    A "Christian" only follows "The Gospel of Christ" (Gal 1:6-9;"the teachings of Christ!") or "ACCURSED!"

    Me: Do you all not "hear" what GOD said?

    Exd 20:3 "No other god?"

    Society has created (as the Trinity) "the terms used.." to define religion, but not GOD!

    Religion (as def by GOD)=Jm 1:27!

    But Who Cares?

    "MAN" has spoken!

    THE TRUE & LIVING GOD has disciples (Christ Followers or Christians)~! Being Christians does not define "religion!" GOD hates RELIGION! Hypocrites! The ONLY def GOD gives for religion is found in Jm 1:27!

    According to man "Christianity itself is a religion," but NOT to the ONLY TRUE & LIVING GOD!

    HIS def is found in Jm 1:27="WORKS!"

    I'm glad that my "Owner" is JESUS for that's who I "Parrot" = JESUS~!

    You should be so "fortunate!"

    O, I forgot! "Your opinion" matters more than THE WORD of GOD, doesn't it?

    As reflected in your response!

    U HAVE THE 1ST PART RIGHT - FOR CONDEMNATION!

    "CHRISTIANS" (INITIALLY USED AS A DEROGATORY TERM) R "FOLLOWERS" OF CHRIST OR DISCIPLES OF CHRIST (ACTS 2:42)!
