Religion Blinds Us to the Things of God

Religion blinds us to the things of God and drives us to justify ourselves to further our own agendas, thinking that we are working for God.  All men are under God’s sovereign control, and nothing that we have is a result of our own efforts, but rather His grace.  Jesus’ restraint in the face of His creation’s ridicule, mocking and belittling is something that we cannot grasp; how the Creator of all things would allow his creation to torture, belittle, and kill him is mind boggling.  God is much more glorified in the cross than if we had never sinned.  The restraint that the Creator displays in the cross is something that we cannot grasp.

John 18:25-19:26
