The cultural perception of religion is that it ruins everything. Modern society tends to view religion as the cause of most of the world's problems because religious people are hypocritical trouble-makers who force their outdated beliefs on others through intimidation, condemnation, force or oppression. Ironically, Jesus isn't too fond of religion either. In fact, in Matthew 23 he condemns it. In this sermon, Living Hope Location Pastor, Trevor Nashleanas, explains how God is not pleased with empty religious practice, but with authentic faith in Jesus.
