If you are living in Sin then your religion is worthless.
1 Corinthians 15:17
In fact, God never intended to save you through religion, but rather to save you out of it.
Because of Religion, you have been kept in the domain of darkness by not knowing the meaning of Salvation.
Then again, how are you to know the meaning of Salvation if you do not even know the meaning of Sin let alone the meaning of Faith, which is the wherewithal to Righteousness?
Although the master puppeteer is at fault, keep in mind, you are the one paying for the puppets and for the show.
2 Peter 2:3, John 8:24
The beginning of the end of Religion.
Jeremiah 51:45, Revelation 18:4
