While the case is made there are elements of religion connected with Christianity such as the basic belief in a supernatural power of creation and sustentation, we part ways from the traditional tenets and specific systems which have caused sceptics to ask is Christianity no religion too.
Unbelievers who doubt the relevancy of a purported ascetic lifestyle in a permissive society would ask you to imagine that “no hell is below us” and “no religion too”, lumping Christianity in with religion, and promoting the idea that it is a life much too hard to live.
Consider, however, Christianity is not religion too. Christianity is not a set of creeds, doctrines, and traditions which one must follow, but it is simply your life and living relationship with God your Father. It is the normal and natural life with God, that which is the normal realm for all humanity.
After a person has received the life of God and come into a sure understanding of Him as Father, life becomes a joy. Subsequently, it becomes a joy to do the will of God; and in doing God’s will, you live out the essence of what it means to be Christian.
In this respect, love is the primary motivating factor. I John 5:3-4, declares, ” Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome. For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith”. Christianity, then, is loving God, and overcoming in this life.
Christianity is no hard religion too. The hard and unnatural life truly is the life which is alienated from God. Proverbs 13:15, explains, ” Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard”. A preponderance of evidence and experience leads us to conclude Christianity is no religion too; it is the very life of God in you.
