Religionless Christianity:


Religionless Christianity is no religion at all, but pseudo humanism, a false man-made religion acknowledging some form of higher intelligence, or an amorphous, formless force, preferring to keep it undefined, vague and impersonal. A god of convenience who doesn’t have to be worshipped; a god that requires no discipline and allows one to sleep in on Sunday’s because one “works hard all week.” What’s more, since this god has no churches, there are none to attend. Personal responsibility is irrelevant, because there isn’t anyone to answer to.

Personal responsibility is irrelevant, because there isn’t anyone to answer to. 


However, true religion is not void of observance. Religion is not convenient; it requires commitment. In truth, unlike the person who lost his keys one night, and searched for them in the dark without a flashlight; why no flashlight? Answer: because he doesn’t want to find them. 

The human heart has an insatiable hunger for God; attempts to replace him with meaningless absurdities serves only to make life meaningless. People need religion in the same way they need food, drink, sleep and air to breathe; it is an integral part of personhood, imparting character and virtue to be passed on to their children by example. Your children and you are spiritual beings, not just physical. Calculated ignorance does not deter this unchangeable reality.

Any parent who sleeps in on Sunday because “he has to work during the week,” as if the rest of us stay home, does his children no favor by doing so. Children live by example set by their parents. Learned behavior originates from the home. More women attend church than men. Fathers who do not are leading their children astray. Jesus said: “It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone around his neck than to lead one of these little ones astray.” 


Luke 17:2. 

Teaching children by example to be lazy and indifferent to their soul’s salvation is not parenthood. Parents have a responsibility to instill in their children wholesome character traits that enriches and develops informed personalities. 

If parents don’t communicate with their children by wholesome example they will find someone else to talk to about life. Here are some statistics that should awaken any parent today. 

1. In the next 24 hours, 1,500 young people will attempt suicide from the ages of 10-24. 

2. 2,800 teenage girls will get pregnant.

3. 1,500 teens will use drugs for the first time. 

4. 3,500 young people will run away; many sell themselves to live. 

5. 2 will be murdered. Even if your children have not engaged in any of the above, they have friends and classmates who have. 


Parents must inform their children about these and other issues young people face today.

Not communicating with your children makes them feel unwanted and in the way. Rejection, no matter how unintended is the single cause of troubled young people. 

The church exists in the world to save man from himself. A statement like “no one goes to church anymore,” amounts to the language of the weak and indifferent, ignorant of the important things in life. Excuses are not the stuff of manhood. 


Real men bring their children to church so that they can learn the beauty of virtue, which enables them to withstand all that is wrong in this world. Instilling wholesome character traits in children begins at home and reinforced in Church.


The spiritual roots of unbelief originate in the home and spirals out of control in the public square. Parents who do not bring their children to church are teaching them unbelief. Sleeping in on Sunday and sitting before the television watching the ball game while your children are off and running every which way, without any guidance and moral structure, is not fatherhood, but the lack of it. Responsible parenthood begets responsible children.
