In my always constant search for truth in spirituality. mind you I was on a search for religion. Between something i read in the gospel of john and discussions with my good friend pastor paul. It occurred to me, Jesus is anti religion of an organized fashion.
I was studying more the gospel of John and spotted this wonder piece, that in one verse it dawned on me alot of my thoughts and beliefs up until now were on to something…
John 4 21-24 Woman, I tell you that neither is so. Believe this: a new day is coming—in fact, it’s already here—when the importance will not be placed on the time and place of worship but on the truthful hearts of worshipers. You worship what you don’t know while we worship what we do know, for God’s salvation is coming through the Jews. The Father is spirit, and He is seeking followers whose worship is sourced in truth and deeply spiritual as well. Regardless of whether you are in Jerusalem or on this mountain, if you do not seek the Father, then you do not worship.
And then a little after that he rebuked the jews for being followers of law ie dogma
I’ll leave you with that for now and this awesome video of the Gospel of John
