Jesus said to the woman "Woman, your FAITH (lifestyle character...SPIRIT) HAS SAVED YOU".
Her passionate caring for those in her care (she undoubtedly was a MOTHER who set the table) was what Jesus came to teach us (with LIVING WATER from a "heart of flesh" instead of a "heart of stone"). THAT should our own PERSONAL "religion"....this is called HEAVEN (the kingdom of God is WITHIN).

Religion just means 'Whom and How you worship'
So yes religion does save one, but ONLY ONE religion saves one which is Christianity.
Jesus is "'the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone. 'Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved."
A Follower of Jesus makes you Christian.
Faith is believing the Creed you profess in Jesus Christ.

Since the beginning of time, the Dark Forces of satan have simply taken the truth about the creator and MADE IT PROPRIETARY/political (non-generic).
It's as though someone wants to study nature (or anything generic) and 'tricksters' decide to confuse them and prevent them from understanding properly.

"Religion" (an institutionalized self-righteous system of piety) is a manmade substitution of sincerity toward God.
Hebrews 6:1 says that true devotees/worshipers of God shall no longer have a "faith TOWARD God" (we should only have a TRUSTING faith that God wants us to return to Him and is a REWARDER of all who are sincere and want to "draw near" to Him).
After God the creator finished creation, He said "It is GOOD" (meaning that it is ALL good), but since Adam made the wrong decision, humanity learned to believe that only some things are good.
God created us as "LIVING SOULS" (natural man). He wants to RESTORE us to be natural man again (living souls).

Sitting in a church does not make you Saved, any more than sitting in a garage makes you a car

Religion can't save you. Faith saves you. The difference is that all religion is man made - but faith is a personal relationship between you and God. Only through Jesus do you get salvation.

religiion is a loving obedience and service 2 God as the Heavenly Father.Your faith in God only will save u .Luke8:21Not everyone that says 2me,Lord Lord shall enter in2 the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of my Father in heaven.Acts5:21We ought 2 obey God rather than men.

Religion IS man dictating to God who He is - (man-made God worship). This will NOT get you into Heaven or save you. Jesus Christ IS the only way to God and to Heaven. The ONLY WAY to be saved and go to Heaven is by accepting Jesus Christ into your heart as your Lord & Savior. This is NOT religion, but a relationship with God.

Say this prayer: Heavenly Father, I know that I am a sinner in need of a savior. I believe you sent Jesus to die for me. Jesus, I ask you to come into my heart, and make me clean. Take charge over my life Jesus. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Religion can't save you. Only Jesus Christ can save you. Religion is a name hung on a church door. The only way for anyone to go to heaven is through Jesus Christ.

Religion can NEVER save you.

mini u do not have to be so cold. People go thru different types of experiences, if they take the time out to blog their questions, we need to try and see how we can be of help. Ok? I am sure b4 this person came to this blog he or she had a dictionary and a bible. So do not ask them if they have one.

Well said Herb! This is exactly what was wrong with me before I was found by Jesus. I used to be a devout catholic but I was empty inside. I was super religious so I thought I had it made and never went on from there. I got born again in August of 1982 and I have never been the same since. Jesus is the reason. Religion cannot save any person. ONLY Jesus can save us. God is good!
---John on 1/10/07|
Many good answers here. Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. John 10:10)
Bless you, and would you let us know how you are? You are loved and prayed for
---christina on 1/10/07|
Religion takes more people to hell than anything else I know. When a person becomes religious, they think they are ok and will not seek Jesus. Ye must repent and be born again. If you would like to be born again then werit me.
---Rev_Herb on 1/10/07|
Religion cant save you but God can...there is so much more to Christianity than Religion and going to heaven, Jesus says to pray for heaven to be on earth isnt that soo cool....(its in the lords prayer)
---mark on 1/9/07|
need to know..it seems u know the answer already whom are you kidding...otherwise u wouldnt ask such question and wouldnt know to ask..how about it...look in your bible n dictionary
---mini on 1/9/07|
You can bet it is God that made your heart so open to the truth of heaven and hell. God sent you here too so please listen to these good people. Trust the Christian Gospel it is the truth. Also people here are right. No relgion will save you. Only God's grace can through faith that Jesus Christ died on the cross as atonement for our sins. If you make that choice, study the bible. Start with the New Testament and read it a couple of times. God bless you. I hope you make the right decision.
---Matthew on 1/9/07|
The answers from mature Christians here speak volumes. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is not complicated.
God uses men and women not because we are something special. You've touched God and He has touched you.

Tomorrow IS guaranteed for Christians. 1John5:13 "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life" If we belief on Jesus we know what are future will be... tomorrow or years from now. People who just have religion are depending on works... Eph. 2:8-9 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."

Religion cannot save you just as the Pope cannot save you either. "Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." If you want to go to heaven, Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life, no one goes to the Father except by me." By believing upon the Lord Jesus Christ and Repenting from your sins and being baptized according to Acts 2:38 is how you get to heaven. Being born again means being born of the water and the Spirit of God.

Personally, I do not adhere to a religion as I believe that they are man-made. Spirituality, a one-on-one relationship with God, is what I strive to maintain.
---Annie on 1/9/07|
Religion is organized worship of something.
Christianity is worship of Christ. Only He is worthy to be worshiped. Only His obedience to the suffering on the cross will save you. There is nothing you can do except;
Repent of sin,
Admit your need,
Confess and accept Christ into your heart and life. Trust Him and only Him for your Salvation.
Pay attention to the other comments here.

Religion is a belief where adherents are obligated to fixed rules and regulations. Religion never saved anybody. Christians worship Christ only as their only personal Lord and Savior, and follow only him, and if the person does this then they are Christian. "Whosoever will Call upon the Name of the Lord will be saved": Joel 2:32; Zechariah 13:9; Romans 10:9-13. And by asking him into our lives, God will send the Spirit of Christ into our hearts, crying Papa, Father: Galatians 4:6.

No religion can save you. John 14:6 Jesus says, "I am the Way, the Truth & the Life, no man cometh to the Father but by me." Only by believing Jesus is Messiah, came to earth, shed his blood, died on the cross, was buried & rose again, by having a personal relationship with him, can you have assurance you are saved from your sin and will go to heaven. I encourage you to read G-d's word, fellowship with other believers, spend time in worshipping G-d to have an intimate relationship with Him.
---Phyllis on 1/8/07|
Religion will not save you. A personal relationship with Jesus Christ will. Are you aware of why Christ died on the cross? It was to allow you to have a relationship with God and be forgiven of your sins.
Read the book of John in the New Testament of the Bible. It is a Gospel, which means Good News.

No religion can not save you. Only the Father who has mercy on you will grant you access to the Son and only the Son can give you salvation. Ask, seek and knock.
---Ryan on 1/8/07|
Need_to_know, Only Jesus saves.Cry out to God ask Him to forgive you of all your sins, ask Jesus to come into your heart,He loves you poured out His soul unto death for you(Isaiah 53:12),shed His precious blood to wash away your sins.Cry out to the Lord, to save you,then obey His Word,stay in the Word.Once you receive Jesus in your heart, ask the Lord to baptize you in the good Holy Ghost,while you are praising Jesus with all your heart. Please keep us updated! I'll pray for you.God Bless!(Romans 10:13).

Religion cannot save you. Only the Lord Jesus Christ can save you. Jesus came to this earth and became a Man and died on the Cross for your sins, then Jesus rose from the dead. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.
---Helen_5378 on 1/8/07|
Religion does not save, only faith in Jesus Christ does. Romans 4:22 This is why it was credited to him (Abraham) as righteousness. The words it was credited to him were written not for him alone, but also for us to whom God will credit righteousness-for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification. (italics added to NIV were mine)
---joan4689 on 1/8/07|
