Summary: LESS RELIGION AND MORE FAITH
LESS RELIGION AND MORE FAITH
Matthew 20: 25 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.
26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;
27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:
28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

1. Religion is Temporal.
Faith is Eternal
Hebrews 12: 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
2 .Religion defends
Faith turns the other cheek.
But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
3. Religion is quick to Judge no one right but them stay away from me.
Faith has compassion.
Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
4. Faith loves and cares about his fellow man.
Faith attracts people to Our Lord.
5. Religion tries to cover up.
There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Religion every body has some ways and acts.
You can see through it every time.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,
7. Religion consumes many times we find people need to be fed.
People need the word. People need to obey the Holy Spirit.
Religion says God will.
Faith says God can.
John 6: 9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
Religion keeps going like in the Good Samaritan story.
Faith stops looks and helps what ever the need.
