On Facebook the other day I saw a post by Pastor Greg Laurie it stated the flowing :
Religion.I have to admit,I’m not a big fan.“But you are a Preacher and a religious person!”*some might say.I beg to differ.Follower of Jesus Christ?Guilty as charged.Religious person?I have no interest whatsoever.Let me take it a step further.I actually hate religion.I think more people have been blinded by religion to their need for Jesus then perhaps any garden-variety sin you can think of.Case in point- a very religious man named Nicodemus came to Jesus one night.He was searching for meaning in his ritual-filled life.Not only that,but he was in his day a famous religious leader.Jesus told what he had to do to go to Heaven.That’s what I want to talk about tomorrow at Harvest/Riverside and Orange County in my message,”Heart to Heart”.
When i read this i was a little bothered so I commented on his post:
“wow, hate is such a strong word. You should be more responsible for the things you say. And why are you trying to sell this “Jesus is anti-religion” Stuff? Wasn’t Jesus Christ a devout Jew and read, understood, and shared scripture? It would appear to me Jesus was more anti-corruption than anti-religion. And I am not seeing the Nicodemus comparison.”
And Greg Laurie’s response
Deleted my post and blocked me from commenting on anything on his Facebook page.
Was I wrong with my comment? or Rude? I didn’t mean to be.
