Existential “Christians” use the currently faddish dislike of the word “religion” to peddle a big lie wrapped in half truth …

By claiming that Jesus is all about “relationship” and not religion.

While it’s true that Jesus wants a relationship with us …

He wants that relationship to include all He has authoritatively revealed in His external Word of Scripture about Himself, us, His creation and so much more.

This includes His propositional truths, moral precepts and objective reality as they apply not just to us …

But also government, church, family, history, culture, economics and everything else.

Otherwise, Jesus is just about their self-focused “existentialism” rather than Lord and creator of all …

As they seek to define Him in their own terms based on their own perceptions, sensibilities and agendas.

This is why “Christian” existentialists typically have a “faith” that’s trapped in doubt, angst and uncertainty …

As they remain stuck with themselves rather than submit to the comprehensive, authentic Jesus of Scripture – who’s so much more than just an individual subjective relationship.

Don’t fall prey to a false Jesus of their own creation …

But find liberty, freedom and authority by surrendering all of you to all of Him – as Lord of all who’s over all – on His terms, not theirs.
