Wise Words for Today

“Ever since this cosmic calamity of man’s rebellion against his heavenly kingdom government, religion has been his vain attempt to return to God’s presence or to compensate for the loss. Therefore, religion represents every activity of mankind in its self-centered search for God and the kingdom, whether through Scientology, Bahai, Islam, Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, Shintoism, animism, Unitarianism, atheism, or any other “ism” or philosophy. The principle motivation is to rediscover and receive what was lost, the Kingdom of God. No matter what name they bear, all religions are an exercise in futility because they express man’s vain frustrating pursuit to recover what lost…..Religion is man’s substitute for the Kingdom and that is why it cannot and will never satisfy him. Only the Kingdom can solve man’s eternal problem.”

Dr. Myles Munroe
