Reflecting on religion verses relationship. Listened to a guy talking about this---it was about the fact that many people go to church and have a religion and are basically in a virtual reality. --playing at but not having the reality! It is a form of relationship without God---a relationship that denies the power thereof----a form of godliness without the power of God in it.
I need to examine my life to make sure that I am listening to God and that I am doing what He wants---living in that dynamic relationship and allowing Him to form His image in me (see post below). Need to make sure I am not just playing in a virtual reality, but that I am responding to what he tells me to do. I can't conform my life to this culture, or even the church's culture but to Christ.
