“Religion” does not equal Christianity
I’m a non-religious Christian. Here is my take. The message of Christ and the new testament is that we all fall short of the perfection required to earn salvation. Christ did the work for us all by His perfect life, sacrificial death and resurrection. We don’t need to do anythng more. We shouldn’t judge others.

We don’t need to do anything else. Praise God!

Really, when you take a …
