The Religious Trap

In Matthew chapter 6 Jesus goes after two issues that will keep his followers from seeing His kingdom advance on earth - money and the "religious trap". When Jesus followers start doing things for the approval of man and not God, bondage, criticism, control and disunity are never far behind. Honesty (with God and others) and repentance are the keys to avoiding this trap (Matthew 6:1-6; Matthew 6:16-18; Matthew 16:5-12; Psalm 51:6; 2 Corinthians 10:3-6).
