The Difference Between Religion and Eternal Life
by Henry Mahan
The Difference Between Religion and Eternal Life
  1. Religion is to know biblical facts.  Life is to know God (1 John 5:20).
     
  2. Religion is to know what I believe.  Life is to know Whom I believe (2 Timothy 1:12). 
     
  3. Religion is to baptized into the church.  Life is to be baptized in Christ (Romans 6:3). 
     
  4. Religion is to be reformed.  Life is to be regenerated (John 3:3).
     
  5. Religion is to be a new convert.  Life is to be a new creature in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). 

    A man was asked, "And what is your religious persuasion?"  He replied, "I am persuaded that nothing can separate me from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord ." - Romans 8:38-39
