I hate all your show and pretence – the hypocrisy of your religious festivals and solemn assemblies (Amos 5:21; NLT).

If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless (James 1:26; NLT).

The time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God. This is because they have never known the Father or me (John 16:2-3; NLT).

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you (James 1:27; NLT).


I wish there were no
In this world –

For all we need
Is kindness,

And joy,
And peace.
