Religion is a product of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
In order to practice religion properly, you have to know the rules. What is right and wrong – good and evil. The arguments religious people get into are always about information, including the rules.
Religion is a foundational part of every culture. Every human is religious about something until freed from it by the Spirit of Jesus. Even barbaric atheists are religious about their practices in some part of their lives.
Religion that Jesus values is being religious about taking care of orphans & widows & strangers. Feel free to be annoyingly religious in those areas!
