So you can trust Jesus Christ or the leaders of religion. Jesus continually warns you and me that men who trust anything more than God's Word will be blind guides. Only Jesus Christ, the Light of the World can have you "see" His Way and have you walk with Him. Your Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105

"I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. But I will show you Whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after the killing of the body, has power to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear Him (The Lord God Almighty, Judge of the earth). Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
"I tell you, whoever acknowledges Me before men, the Son of Man will also acknowledge him before the angels of God. But he who disowns Me before men will be disowned before the angels of God. … "When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say." Luke 12:1-12
What is a friendship with God like?
Bring me to My Religion is Good.
