Religion of the People

The Bible talks about government hundreds and hundreds of times, contracts, covenants, agreements, hundreds of times. Religion is mentioned only five times.

In 1382 the introduction of John Wycliffe’s translation of the Bible read, “This Bible is for the Government of the People, by the People, and for the People.” John was arrested by the government, and died in jail. Two years later a church burned his body at the stake. They burned others alive for the same belief and perception.

“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit137 the fatherless and widows in their affliction, [and] to keep himself unspotted from the world.” James 1:27

The Greek word for world here is defined as that “constitution, order, government” which comes from the Greek word komizo defined “to care for, take care of, provide for.” It meant the “State”.

Christ’s Kingdom offered the same religious benefits, care, and assistance as the “world”. It offered daily bread for the administration of the widows and orphans but it was dependent on faith, hope, and charity to provide the resources of its government as God has always intended.

The “world” then offered free bread and circuses and a vast system of welfare. They provided those benefits through the tax supported temples of the Roman government. This collection of the sacrifices of the people was called Qorban and like the Corban of the Pharisees it made the word of God to none effect.138

The governments of the world never provide charity. They only give away what they take away from others. The government of God never gives anything except what is charitably given. Freely give and freely receive. In this one precept of charity we divide the the goats from the sheep, governments of the gods many of the world from the government of God the Father in Heaven, pure religion from impure religion, and the faithful from those of little faith.
