Religion can be a double-edged sword.
Many have killed using the name of the Lord.

Idols, rituals, customs and tradition…
Will lead you down the road to perdition.

Our Creator is intelligent to be sure
He gave us a heart to praise Him pure.

Religion is the expression of worship from man
But its purpose is tainted and cannot stand.

It is a figment of man’s imagination?
No, the Bible was given for our clarification.

Why are there so many religions and differences of opinion?
Is it because man makes himself the center of his dominion?

Forget sacrifice or atonement, paganism or fasting
Only God’s Word will be ever lasting.

Read the Bible and get to know your Lord.
Don’t get caught up in a double-edged sword.
