Book: The End of Religion

About a quarter way through this book. Got it as one of those free books from Amazon for kindle. I would highly recommend it to Christians, a group of people that I sometime do not want to identify with the same label but instead call ourselves 'the followers of the Way'

This book could be read by followers of other religions too. The abuse of their religious beliefs had large overlaps with the Christians.

Two thousand years ago God started a revolt against the religion He started. So don't ever put it past God to cause a groundswell movement against churches and Christian institutions that bear His name. If He was willing to turn Judaism upside down, don't think for a moment our institutions are safe from a divine revolt. I am convinced that even now there are multitudes of followers ofJesus Christ who are sick and tired of the church playing games and playing down the call of God.

Real Christ-followers are those who, having been on the receiving end of God's gracious love through Jesus, pour out this same embracing love to others in ways that mend broken relationships, heal inner wounds, and offer practical care for the helpless and hurting.

And referring to an April 25th entry, "Vivian Balakrishnan: Judge Not" in particular the deacon story I get in my email on and off. Wonderful that these stories are making the rounds.
