As a young man I remember being told things like:
Jesus didn’t come to set up a religion, He came to establish a relationship with us and start a community of friends who would follow Him together.
Religion is man’s attempt to reach and find God; Jesus represents God’s attempt to reach men and women that they would find Him.
Yet, we have a world filled with people attempting to reach God, please God, or serve God through religious behavior, performance, and rule-keeping.
