The word religion has become associated with a list of rules, and those rules have been become associated with the church. The truth is that most people who don’t go to church have no problem with Jesus; they have a problem with religion. They have heard about all the rules and know that they can’t measure up. They dismiss religion, and in the process, lose their opportunity to meet Jesus in a real and personal way.
We just kicked off a brand new series called “Breaking the Rules” that throws out every notion that God is just a God of rules. God is a God who wants a relationship. In Part 1 of Breaking the Rules, Pastor Tim showed us why God’s only rules are the ones that bring us closer to Him and to each other.
Join us this weekend as the series continues, and we try to figure out how church got so complicated.
