My Church, Your Church

The vicious cycle of sectarianism still occupies the heart of many Christians today. Churches advertise "Non Sectarian, Full Gospel, and Bible Base"  doctrines which I now presume was just mere propaganda of some Denominations whose intent was really to suck you inside their flock and consider the "other" Body of Christ as actual threat to their numbers or to your salvation.
   I just wonder if numbers would justify the "blessedness" of a Church. Wasn't it the fruits that matters? 
     There is either one, true religion or there is no religion at all.
   Did God really intended Judaism to be a religion? For all I know, God intended Israel to be an example to Nations. The same goes with Christianity...as salt to the world.
   God intend to establish a Kingdom and Not Religion. We can read "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness" -- Matthew 6:33...
   Religion focus on the rituals and observance of man made traditions while genuine Christianity is more focus on grace; obedience and fulfillment trough the help of the Holy Spirit.



Did Jesus Abolished The Laws and Command
   A lot of people think that Jesus already abolished the laws and commandment after He had completed His sacrifices but is that true?
Matthew 5:17-20
"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven."

   Jesus' teachings on the Law also focused on inward obedience, or obedience of the heart, rather than outward, legalistic obedience (Mt 5:21-28). Furthermore, Matthew 15:17-20 contains the same teaching that in Mark is explicitly interpreted as saying that all foods are clean (Mk 7:14-23).
