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.
