Challenging Religion

"The reason it's so difficult to have a considered conversation about religion is that people feel threatened. Not by the implied criticism of the rituals or irrationality of a particular religious practice, but because it feels like criticism of their faith." Seth Godin

Think how tough that makes it to exercise the leadership gifts:  pastor/teacher, prophet, apostle, evangelist, givers of words of wisdom or a word of knowledge for .

"Faith is the cornerstone that keeps our organizations together.  Faith is the cornerstone of humanity; we can't live without it.  But religion is different from faith. Religion is just a set of invented protocols, rules to live by.
"Religions exist for one reason - to reinforce our faith."

Don't let it come between you and the Body of Christ.

Don't let it come between you and God.
