    alot of evangelicals are saying that Christianity is not a religion - but a relationship with God.

    i believe it's both (looking at james 1:26-27)

    i used to be fully against religion. but looking into it - alot of evangelicals have a twisted view of what religion actually is. or should be anyways.

    what's your definition of religion?

    any thoughts?

    I believe you're correct. Despite the evangelical cliche, Christianity is indeed the true religion because it offers a true relationship with God.

    agreed.

    why is it then... that it seems so many evangelical christians.. or christians in general - focus more on the Relationship end of things and almost completely forget the Religion part of it all?

    does no one care or what?

    i'm not trying to stir up a fight. i'm legitimately asking a question i've asked myself before.

    peace.
