will get you to Heaven? Will your religion get you to Heaven? Can
you get to Heaven through all religions?
Religion is a
confusing subject! If I were looking for God and a way to get to
Heaven, I wouldn't know where to turn. Most religions cause trouble.
People will fight over their religion, that's not what Jesus taught.
Turn on the TV
and there is more religion than you know what to do with. Which
would you choose? Which is correct? Is only one right? Are they
all right? Do I need a religion anyway to get to Heaven?
The thing I see
about most all the religious shows on TV is they want to separate
you from your money. Some say "sow a seed", "give
a first fruits offering", "ask for their miracle spring
water" and many other ways to separate you from your money.
They all want you to sow your offerings through them and they say

and lie not against the truth. 15This wisdom descendeth not from
above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16For where envying and
strife is, there is confusion and every evil work".
Now God does want
us to give, Luke 6:38 does say we should
give, but Luke 6:28-30 tells us who
to give to. I don't hear those TV preachers talking about giving
the Bible way. Giving shows a reflection of our heart condition.
That is the thing God is interested in, He doesn't need our money.
The thing that causes most problems can be found in I
Timothy 6:10, be sure to read the whole verse.
The Bible says
pure religion is James
1:27 "Pure religion and
undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless
and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from
the world". I don't like to be called religious because
what Jesus offers is much more. But if it is religion it would be

What Jesus offers
is salvation. Salvation that will take us to Heaven when we trust
in what He did on our behalf. He gave us that free choice. He gives
us a new heart, you might say. To help us be able to live up to
what Jesus said in Luke 6: 27 "But I
say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which
hate you, 28Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully
use you", to Love our enemies.
Religions of the
world say "Do, and then live" (they kill you if you don't
do as they say). Religion from Heaven says "Live, and
then do" God offers life through Jesus, then the life we live
shows others what we believe.
