What is the True Religion?

There is a lot of debate about which one of the many religions, cults and sects around the world is the true religion. It is easy to get tired of so many different, simillar and contradictory opinions that you can find online. Yet it is almost funny to discover that the bible answers that question straightforward. So the true religion is … James 1:27

New International Version
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

King James Bible
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

And just before that there is this  – 26Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless.  Food for thought, is it not?. What is your opinion?

We talk and write too much about life – when it is only Vanity, Vanity, Vanity

One reason I like the book of ecclesiates is that it is so truth concerning a large amount of human experience, at least my own experience. This because at the end of the day everything is vanity or meaningless from the human advantage point. When we are gone we are gone there is no more human agency, no hands on anything.

King Solomon had it all, He ordered and ate his cake. Some suggested he was worth close to 1 trillion dollars at the end of his life when he said -Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind – Ecclesiastes 12:13. I can not help see this and link to something Jesus said – Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me. Matthew 11:6
