In these passages is the account of the Jews turning Jesus over to the Roman governor, Pilate, to be crucified.  Interestingly, the Jews would not enter the Roman Praetorian because they did not want to be defiled. This would prevent them from eating the Passover dinner.

This is a graphic illustration of religion.  Religion is man-made and applies rules that are not found in the Bible.  In so doing, religion distorts the Truth. This results in leading people away from rather than toward God.

The Bible says that Satan is the spiritual ruler of the world.  He is opposed to God and wants to lead people away from God.  I  believe that Satan has been most effective in his goal by using religion.  He uses religion to exploit peoples’ superstitious nature, keeping them from learning God’s Truths. 

The Word of God, the Bible, is our only reliable source of Truth.  The Bible characterizes Jesus as the Living Word of God.  Belief in Jesus is the only path to Heaven.  Therefore, our belief in Jesus is validated through living our lives according to the Bible’s guidance.

Living our  lives according to the Bible will set us free from the bondage of sin.  It will also set us free from the bondage of religion.  When Jesus sets us free, we are free, indeed.  Our lives will be rich, full and blessed.
