Many today try to take their relationship with God and make a religion out of it. We are co-laborers, or partners with God in the earth. You are not to take a partnership and make a religion or ritual out of it. Jesus stood against religion in his day. In Jesus' day when the religious people--the scribes and pharasees complained about some things Jesus was doing. These men were experts in theology, yet they did not recognize or know God as he stood there beside them. Lot's of people are like this in the world today. "Then some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked, why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don't wash their hands before they eat (Math. 15:1-2)." These people were saying, we have to preserve our customs, our codes, our rules and regulations. To them this is what religion was all about. Jesus didn't have a religious bone in his body. Listen at what his response is, "Jesus replied, and why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition (Math. 15:3)?" Religious tradition has made the word of God of non effect. It has robbed God's word of it's power. People have taken a form of godliness but deny the power thereof.
