This week’s podcast, “Detoxing from Religion, Part 2” is from a Facebook Live I did on my Path to Purpose with Schlyce Facebook Group. I preached myself so happy here, so I wanted to share it! Truly understanding the Gospel and detoxing from religion will revolutionize your relationship with God, with yourself, and with all of creation.
Religion, as it is presented in the Western church, is separation from God. It is the Tree of Knowledge rather than the Tree of Life. But, the Gospel is the announcement of the death of a self that is separate from God. It is the announcement of our union with Him. It is the announcement that our original origin is not Adam, it is Jesus. It is the announcement that we’ve died to sin. It is the announcement that there is no ‘us’ outside of Christ.
This may sound radical, but it is all over the New Testament. Here are just a few scriptural references:
- Galatians 2:20 (Mirror Translation)
- Colossians 1:15-20 (TPT)
- Colossians 1:18-20 (AMP)
- Romans 6:2-11 (TPT)
- Colossians 3:1-4 (TPT)
- Philippians 3:10-11 (AMPC)
- Romans 5:12-21
- Ephesians 1
- John 14
Religion is the illusion of separation from God. It is time to detox from our human effort of trying to become something we already are – perfect in Christ.
