By religion, I mean true religion.
It’s about two things. Both of which are related. It’s about letting go, and love.
Objection #1: But isn’t it about pleasing God?
No, pleasing God is a by-product of letting go, and love.
Objection #2: But isn’t it about following certain rules in order to make sure we do the right thing?
No, the rules are: let go, and love. That’s what will cause us to do the right thing.
How are letting go and love related? Letting go makes it easier for us to love, and love makes it easier to let go. Think about it and you’ll realize that it’s true. And what more would God want from us than to trust him and love each other?
