Jesus picked and chose what he accepted in the Bible of his day. He definitely did not literally apply every verse as everyone did 2,000 years ago and the way many people still do. If you want to be Christlike, don't you think you should interpret the Bible the way Jesus did?
Jesus was not and is not religious. In fact, just about the only thing Jesus ever got angry about was the behavior of religious people. And what ticked Jesus off the most was when religious people made up non-functional religious rules.
It will shock you when you realize how Jesus interpreted the Bible of his day. He did not interpret it the way the religious crowd of his day did, and he did not interpret the Bible the way that you probably do.
In this episode I give you the ultimate religious challenge: I challenge you to read the gospels constantly asking the question: "What is Jesus' attitude towards the organized religion of his time, and towards the leaders of organized religion he interacted with?" The results will revolutionize your relationship with God.
