In this episode Nick and Mike discuss what the Bible has to say about religion and how God feels about it. Is religion opposed to relationship with Jesus? What is “religion” anyway – and is Christianity a religion or not?
We look at uses of the word “religion” in the Bible, as well as passages like Isaiah 1 and Amos 5. We also examine Jefferson Bethke’s spoken word YouTube video: “Why I hate religion but love Jesus,” as well as a New York Times article about popular views on religion – along with biblical examples from Jesus, the apostles, and the New Testament church.
