Much of what takes place in the realm of religion is actually dangerous to your soul. It leaves you worse off after engaging in it. Check out these 7 ways religion can mess you up:
1) You jump through religious hoops while lacking a relationship with God.
This is the most obvious problem with religion, and the most prevalent. "Let's see. How can I hope to have God accept me? I will try doing religious stuff. Yeah. That's the ticket. That should get it done."
Nope. Not even close.
2) You become proud of your religion.
Pride and religion should not go together. Why then does religion tend to generate so much pride in the heart of man? And why does it often lead people to view themselves as superior to those outside their religious group?
