I don't need religion. I only need a relationship with Jesus. I am a Non-Denominational Christian.
Have you ever heard this?
First let's look at the defintion of Religion according to the Merriam Dictionary:
"The service and worship of God or the supernatural."
When someone says they do not follow a religion, according to the actual definition, they are saying they do not service or worship God. I do not think this is their intention.
Many were simply taught to not follow a religion, simply follow Jesus, which is what Religion means. It means to service and worship God.
Second, let's look at “I am a Non-Denominational Christian.”
What does this mean? It only means they are protestant and follow most protestant theology.
What is a protestant? A protestant is one who follows Martin Luther or one of the protestant reformers.
In short, Non-Denominational is a denomination in itself. It is all smoke and mirrors to make it seem that one is a true Christian when the truest form of Christianity is Catholicism.
