Do you practice Jesus' new and living religion of the Spirit or old church ceremony, tradition and authority?

Please peruse these supernal, inspired, copyright-free quotes on this:
“Institutional religion cannot afford inspiration and provide leadership in this impending worldwide social reconstruction and economic reorganization because it has unfortunately become more or less of an organic part of the social order and economic system which is destined to undergo reconstruction. Only the real religion of personal spiritual experience can function helpfully and creatively in the present crisis of civilization.”
“The religion of Jesus is the most dynamic influence ever to activate the human race. Jesus shattered tradition, destroyed dogma, and called mankind to the achievement of its highest ideals in time and eternity — to be perfect, even as the Father in heaven is perfect.”
“Goals, rather than creeds should unify religionists. Since true religion is a matter of personal spiritual experience, it is inevitable that each individual religionist must have his own and personal interpretation of the realization of that spiritual experience. Let the term “faith” stand for the individual’s relation to God rather than for the creedal formation of what some group of mortals have been able to agree upon as a common religious attitude.”
Do you agree or not?
If yes, please share some of your personal religious experiences — God-consciousness — and it’s benefits. Thank you !
Peace and progress in Spirit and in Father-Son Truth !
To Shalom Y’all: Is this “One True Church” invisible and burning brightly within you as a perfecting son of God in Jesus ? or can this “Church” be physically located on earth ? If you internet search “One True Church”, you will get thousands of them all claiming Authority and yet having different dogma. Please explain.
This new religion of the Spirit was established May 18, AD30-on when Jesus ascended and poured out upon all humans worldwide He the Spirit of Truth – just like Jesus except there is no physical body limitation ! See John 16:7-16 That way, Jesus is here in Spirit upon all and within all Truth-lovers ! So this True religion is new and still being established, compared with the nearly one million year history of mankind living on earth to date.

  1. I’m the Old Church Ceremony, Tradition, and Authority Christian.
    I believe it is completely necessary to recite the prayers/creeds that have been passed down to us from the Oldest of Catholic Traditions, basically, as close to Catholic tradition as possible.

  2. There is ONLY One True Church commissioned by God…. with His Son Jesus The Christ as The Head… If you are not of The True Church you will not be found in Heaven… regardless of what man invented denomination you may be part of…or what “personal” religious experience you may have had.
    My personal Salvation experience comes closest to the third example. But, I see the need for the structure of doctrines and creeds, and even “traditions”, in maintaining order among The Body here on earth… so long as they do not obscure The Truth

  3. If God the Father and his son Jesus Christ are the same yesterday, today and tomorrow how can there be a “new” anything in connection with any organization instituted in the name of God? That is unless it is created by mankind and not divinely ordained. During Jesus’ ministry he organized his church which was comprised of Apostles, Teachers, etc… Jesus established the ordnance of Baptism as required by all who would call themselves his followers. He also initiated the sacrament of the bread and wine. “This do in remembrance of me”. Peter (and his example of faith) was the cornerstone of the primitive church. Being the chief apostle Peter held the authority given him directly from Jesus to lead the church after His departure. The Holy Spirit was sent not only to comfort the apostles and members of the church, but also to guide and direct them. To testify of the truth.
    Given that we are all here to pursue our individual spiritual growth and purposes we need to recognize that this is imposable to achieve in an isolated state. If we are to obey our Savior and Redeemer and love one another as He loves us, we must come together and organize ourselves into the body of His church. Truly this organization should be in the pattern of that set forth by the Master with His authority granted to preform the ordinances He prescribed.
    Ultimately, we are in need of Divinely granted Authority, traditions that bind us together as the family of mankind, the saving ordinances of the gospel (ceremony, if you will) and a personal relationship with our Savior.
