One would never consider when talking about the Christian faith that its greatest enemy is the one closest to its door. The world is full of religions, but Christianity is not one of them. People, like great political leaders or theologians, can pray and ask for God to help or bless. But if the name of Jesus is not invoked, the prayers fall only on religion.

You see, religion hates Jesus because Jesus says, “I AM the only way, the only truth, to know the only real God.” Lots of religions give God different names, but these are only manmade, invented gods whose only power, if there is any, comes from the dark side of life where Satan resides, who likes to masquerade as real. But Satan is only a counterfeit.
God is the creator who chose to create the world and the people in it, and for His own reasons God chose to work through a group of people called the Jews. Religion tries to always rewrite or explain away this fact. But the main problem is Jesus. Some will claim Jesus was a prophet but nothing more. Yet Jesus is the Son of the only true and living God.
Religion will accept some of this truth but attach manmade laws and rules to say how people are to have a relationship. True Christianity is the real thing, for it honors Jesus’ position and accepts all who will come to God through Jesus, by grace, no rules attached, but by a surrendered life through repentance, letting go of the past and allowing Jesus to rule their future.
