A fundamentalist friend of mine say Christ did not start a religion.
Partial quote of what he said:
“he called the people practicing religion with all their laws oppressing
other sons of vipers”.
I wrote back asking for scriptural references, but he did not give any, just said to read Isaiah, Timothy and the gospels. Perhaps he really does not want to get into it with me.
I cited MT 16:18 where Jesus give Peter the keys of the kingdom, and also the reference to IS 22:20-23.
What other biblical verses could I cite?
