A New Religion

Our world is overrun with false religions all attempting to bring their followers peace and hope. There is only true one source of peace and hope which is revealed in this article.

One Hope For All Addicts

Recently I watched a rerun from the Quincy M.E. television show. The theme was about the illegal drug use among the younger generation. Dr. Quincy and a female colleague were discussing the problem at which time the female doctor said, “We need a new religion” which would supposedly bring help and hope to the drug culture.

The Quincy M.E. television show ran over thirty years ago. Not surprisingly we have a greater drug problem today. There are many contributing factors but the simple truth is the drug culture is itself a religion – of falsely induced peace and hope. The real tragedy is their false religion puts them in a worse state than before because they ruin their lives and lose their souls.

As I watched that Quincy M.E. program I felt so sorry that it was thought a “new religion” was necessary to combat the drug epidemic when all along there has been a religious remedy – Jesus Christ. The sad truth is the world will seek and try any and all humanly devised remedies for their ills except the One true cure – Jesus Christ. Let us see how Jesus supplies what the drug addicts and all lost souls are wanting.

Rest from life's struggles - It is inevitable that we get weary and worn down from contending with life's challenges. Nevertheless, there is a source of uplifting rest for us in the form of Jesus Christ. Here are His words. “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” Matt 11:28-29

Peace in our world of turmoil - If there is one thing the world desperately needs but can't find it is peace. That goes for drug addicts and addicts of all kinds. There is absolutely nothing in this world that can deliver true peace to those seeking it except Jesus Christ. “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.” John 14:27

Hope beyond the end - Who can refute the fact that we all have an end on this planet? After death, what? Ancient Job said, “My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.” Job 7:6 Our lives pass quickly and without hope unless we know the One who is hope. The Apostle Paul wrote, “Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Savior, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope.” I Tim 1:1

A new religion is not what drug addicts or any addict needs. Our world is overrun with religions but continually slides deeper into depravity. What the world needs is “That Old Time Religion” - the faith of Jesus Christ.
