Religion does not produce love, it produces man's flesh power. Power of conquering and power of indifference. Agape love may be alongside or within religious systems, for there is nowhere that love can't go, but it is in opposition to religion, never in favor of it. Religion glorifies man. True agape and spiritual truth glorifies Yahweh. We may mix the two in America, but understand they are opposites. Also this is one reason that we lack the power of God. Religion tries to snuff that out. Why? Because when Yahweh is in prominence by the Holy Spirit, then man cannot be. Therefore, truly, you ultimately can't have both. "Choose you this day whom you will serve."
