Ed Young Jr. Explains Why Christianity Is Not a Religion; Says Calling Jesus a 'Good Teacher' Is Intellectually Dishonest

 

Ed Young, pastor of the Texas-based, multi-campus Fellowship Church, explained in his Sunday sermon the difference between Christianity and other world religions to make the point that following Christ is not a religion but is rather based on a relationship.

Young’s sermon was part of his current “Mythbusters” series which he has used to biblically clarify preconceived notions about God that society tends to hold as true. In talking about religion, Young emphasized that God does not want His followers to be religious, contrary to what people think.

“There are some similarities among world religions because all make exclusive claims but Jesus says in John 14:6, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life. No one gets to God but by Me,'” said Young. “So to call Jesus just a good teacher is being intellectually and historically dishonest.”

 

He added, “What separates Christianity from other religions is the fact that it’s actually not a religion. Jesus was the most anti-religion person that ever lived. Religion is a set of man-made do’s and don’ts in order to appease God.”
