Reviews - What do customers think about End Of Religion?
it is about time... Nov 5, 2008
This book draws the line between what Jesus intended versus what the "church" built into rituals and rules.
Phenomenal book. Buy it...read it
So, what's new? Oct 13, 2008
I'm surprised that readers think the idea of Jesus being subversive to religion is something new. The Baptists and others, have been saying this, well... since Jesus.
Preaching to the choirless Aug 27, 2008
This is a massively important book. I read it from cover to cover in a short time and found myself agreeing with almost everything. The other reviewers already made good points including the one who unfortunately gave it only 2 stars. However I would not agree with his point that God set up Judiasm. God gave the law to Moses and his people. The people created the religion from it. The law was necessary and to one extent or another still is the basis for much of the worlds legal system. Jesus did come to blow away the religion (Luke 11:37-52) but he was still adament about the fact he did not come to change the law. (see Matt. 5:17)
A little revolution now and then is a good thing, don't you think? Jun 26, 2008
Politics and religion. Parallel subjects. What so often starts out as a fresh start, a clean break, so to speak, all too soon ends up becoming institutionalized and just as stifling as what it set out to replace. Author Bruxy Cavey deftly points out that Jesus taught that outward appearances involving rituals lacked substance, that faith is about humbly talking the talk and walking the walk, not putting on a pious show. Throughout history, true believers have recognized the need to get back to core values, hence, the repeated reformations that have taken place when the existing church devolved into an oppressive political machine . All of which is a good thing. Just as in politics, when a party strays from it's values and beliefs and becomes an entity concerned only with maintaining power and control. For those who have just about given up, reading this book will reveal that being "churchy" and being a true Christian are entirely different things.
Sick of Religion?......so was Jesus Jun 16, 2008
This book should be given free on the streets!!!!!!!.... I have always been against religion, before knowing God and now that I know it, even more. This book strips away thousands of years of empty, lifeless, meaningless religion. Jesus didnt come to earth to establish a new religion, he came to revolutionize the earth, he came to abolish religion, he was against religion. He has been the most irreligios man who had stepped the earth. Religion doesnt points towards God and God doesnt points towards religion. Many people in order to be against religion they consider themselves spiritual, and they seek an alternative path to spirituality believing that God is equal to religion. Thats why so many people run away from God because they think that God is religion. People are tired of religion. And me too! Who wants to be part of a organized religion which instead of freeing people it enslaves them? Men have turn the word of God into a set of rules and laws. Religion have made atrocities in the name of God along the history. Massacres and cold-blooded mass executions have been made in the name of Jesus because of religion, and not only within the christian faith but religions in general. Religion doesnt cover the breadth of what God is and what you can do with him reigning in your heart. Religion tells a boring story about a boring jesus that was boring and dull. Jesus wasnt like that! He broke the establishment, he went against the stream, he was creative, he never did the same thing twice, he was always innovating...hey! that doesnt sound like religion does it?....Its time to revolutionize this earth like Jesus did. Im glad im part of the generation that will bring the real message of God to the culture. Im from Uruguay (Latin America), to realize what God is doing around the world is great, books like this makes you wanna conquer the world, makes you proud of what you got in your heart, of what you believe. Im waiting impatiently for the next book of Bruxy, I enjoyed this so much, I can picture Jesus smiling with hope, definitely this is the type of book that is backed up with the power of God. The way Bruxy writes is awsome, is such a refreshing reading. He teaches you with examples and basing on the bible. He takes out every religous stereotype and show you the real message of God. Besides he explains in the book that he isnt a special man sent from God who has benn iluminated and that he has "THE" answer. He just isnt afraid to speak the truth...Jesus neither...and me neither...I dont follow any religion. im not into religion. im against it. im a christian. I follow christ.....the most irreligios man who had stepped the earth....
