What is religionless Christianity


Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Christianity After Religion
Page 25

As I’ve said here multiple times, one of the ways I find books to read is by watching what comes back to The Scranton Library in Madison where I work.  My taste in books have changed over the past few years, and one genre that I’m particularly interested in now is Spiritual/Faith books.  The reason for this change is the spiritual evolution that I’ve experienced since discovering Law of Attraction.  Law of Attraction has definitely made my faith stronger.  The quote above is from Dietrich Bonhoeffer.  Dietrich Bonhoeffer is NOT the author.  He was simply quoted.  I chose that quote because it deeply resonated with me.

Religionless Christianity is a subject I feel especially close to.  As anyone who has followed this blog from its inception and anyone who knows me understands that I don’t feel religious in the slightest.  That’s NOT to say I don’t believe.  My faith in God is stronger now than it has EVER been.  Religionless Christianity can sound harsh, odd sacrilegious.  Here’s what I believe:
I believe we can worship the divine independently.
I believe we can carry on a deeper conversation with God individually.
I believe we don’t need a prescribed time to pray, to talk to God.  God is waiting for us.

How do you know if he is listening?  Well, you have to look for signs.  God speaks to each one of us differently.  You have to tune into YOUR frequency.  You have to find YOUR signs.  Ask for something.  I’ve said it here before:
Ask for a parking space you want.
Ask for a red light or a green light before you get in your car for the a road trip.
When these requests come to pass look skyward and say:
Thank You!

This was a gift from God.  Now don’t laugh.  You MUST believe this was a Divine gift.  When the small gifts begin arriving, then it’s time to move on.  Ask for something greater.  It’s important to keep up your conversation regularly.  And don’t JUST ask for things to come to you.  You don’t want to become a beggar.  And also keep this in mind:
Sometimes the answer will be no.  But when the answer is no, remember, it’s only because something better is coming down the pike.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
