Yesterday, my son and I watched The Bourne Ultimatum with a friend. (There are no spoilers in this post.) We had previously watched the other two movies in the trilogy: The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy. Throughout this trilogy, Jason Bourne suffers from amnesia and is trying to remember his identity while evading those who want him dead.
It seems that many Christians suffer from this same problem. They have forgotten who they are. They do not remember their true identity in Christ. Instead of living an abundant life connected to God through Christ, indwelled and empowered by the Spirit, they live a life of ritual and tradition. Instead of growing in grace, they learn religion.
While there are some who prefer the chains of ritual, I have seen more and more followers of Christ remember who they. It is a beautiful transformation out of the bonds of religion and into the freedom of Christ.
