Love is the true religion

In the book Mark chapter 10 verses 17 to 27, we are told of the story of the rich man and the kingdom of God. The rich man wanted to enter the kingdom of God but he wasn’t willing to part away with his wealth. He obeyed the commandments of God and he was righteous but he worshipped his wealth. When you give to the poor you are giving to God. If you didn’t do these for the least of these then you didn’t do it for me. (Matthew 25: 40). This scripture tells us that when wealth is given to us by our Father, we are supposed to share it with the underprivileged.
Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way, they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life. (1Timothy 6:17-19)
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. ( James 1:27)
