Kirk: the end of religion

Thursday, June 26, 2014
    We love him, because he first loved us.
    —1 John 4:19 (KJV)
    The Way is not a religion: Christianity is the end of religion. “Religion” here means the division between sacred and secular concerns, other-worldliness, man’s reaching toward God in a way which projects his own thoughts.
    ... David Kirk (1935-2007), Quotations from Chairman Jesus, Springfield, Ill.: Templegate Publishers, 1969, p. 87 (see the book)
    See also 1 John 4:19; Matt. 23:2-33; Rom. 3:12,22-24; 11:36; 1 Cor. 3:16,17; Heb. 11:6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the initiator of all that has happened in my life. I acknowledge Your gift of faith and I ask for more.
