Is there a difference between relationship and religion?  Are the two mutually exclusive?  Can you have them both?  What is it that Jesus came to share with the world?

Jesus says that two things measure our spiritual life -- Love God with everything you have and Love your neighbor as yourself.  Love that defines our lives and the activities we pursue.  Could it be that we have missed the point by making the religious institution the focus?  Could it be that we made the wrong things the most important things?

Please don't misunderstand.  I am not saying "religion" or "church", as we define it are bad.  Maybe just a little misguided.

The focus is not the church.  The focus is Jesus.  And that defines the church.
