losing my religion…and other drivel June 20, 2008

Posted by lastpicasso in Uncategorized.

My church will be kicking off a new message series this weekend entitled Losing My Religion: A Study in the Book of Hebrews. The Big Idea is that Christ came to complete the law, calling us into relationship with himself, not passionless duty and ritual. I grew up in the Catholic church, so this topic is near and dear to my heart.

I was just reading in Donald Miller’s Blue Like Jazz the other day (I know, I’m waaaaay behind current Christian culture) and I found this quote very thought provoking:

“I believe that the greatest trick of the devil is not to get us into some sort of evil but rather have us wasting time. This is why the devil tries so hard to get Christians to be religious. If he can sink a man’s heart into habit, he will prevent his heart from engaging God.”

So yeah, chew on that…I know I am.

But lest people think this blog will be all think and blink, I’ll leave with some fun drivel…

My new favorite band:

This looks like something Russel would do in his basement. Is it?
