Welcome to your daily dose of focus, courtesy of Galatians 5:6: When we are in Christ Jesus, it is not important if we are circumcised or not. The important thing is faith—the kind of faith that works through love.
Far too often the Bible is used as a weapon of manipulation. It’s been (wrongly) used to wage wars, enslave nations, and justify (some of) the worst behavior in human history.
Because of that, some people have inner conflict about God and the Bible.
But guess what? Not the Pope, not your pastor, or local priest have a Heaven or Hell to put you in. And no matter what they say or do, your life and eternity is resting on your actions and decisions, not their conveniently crafted set of rules.
So don’t get hung up on religious doctrine — instead, focus on what God wants you to do and serve His people through loving actions built on obedience, humility, and faith.
