Item description for Love Thy Neighbor...?: When A Spirit Of Religion Opposes The Heart Of God by Aaron D. Davis...
In John 17: 20-21 Jesus prayed, "My prayer for all of them is that they will be one, just as you and I are one, Father--that just as you are in me and I am in you, so they will be in us, and the world will believe you sent me." (NLT) The Christian church continues to find points of contingency by which they justify their divisions. Many do not realize that it is not the Spirit of God under which they operate, but a subtle counterfeit named Religion. The Spirit of Religion has been the greatest opposition of the Christian Church since its inception. It was the "religious" leaders of Jesus' day who were influenced by this spirit and continually sought to discredit Christ and his teachings. Those who were bound by this spirit sought to silence Christ, and eventually found cause to kill Him. This same spirit at work today continues to cause division, among Christians as well as between Christians and non-Christians. This book has been written to expose the evil influence that Satan has had upon the Christian church under the guise of religion and to release those who have been bound by religions chains by establishing a true relationship with God. Issues addressed in this book include: What is the Spirit of Religion? What is the difference between church doctrine and sin? Why do Christians judge? What does it mean to "be ye separate?" What does the Bible say about those who are Tattooed or Pierced? What is the difference between having a religion and experiencing a relationship with God? ..and much more.

Awesome Aug 3, 2007
In a word . . . Awesome. Very insightful. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who has walked into a church, only to walk out because of other people in the pews or pulpit.
I believe it is a tool to inspire people who have given up on the church and/or church goers, not to give up on God!!!
A must-read book Dec 27, 2006
I want to share with you this awesome book my family and I read called "Love Thy Neighbor....? When a Spirit of Religion opposes the heart of God". This is a very well put together, heartfelt book full of truth and scripture. It sure has opened my eyes to whats going on around in the churches and the people in them. As a christian, I have felt like an outcast and a rebel, (in my own church) some even condeming my tattoos. Aaron has done an awesome job explaining things I was going through. I am not good with my words and cannot express how great this book really is. I think everyone should check it out and see for your self, christian or non-christian.... this is a must read book!!! Thanks for letting me share....
opens your eyes Aug 10, 2006
This book does open your eyes. The behavior of some so called Religious Dictate is shocking and yet it continues on. "He explains the true meaning of Love Thy Neighbor." Aaron opens up to his readers by sharing his experiances. Great inside point of view.
