Dr. J. Vernon McGee, Th.D.

Religion Versus Relationship

Transcript: May I say to you the curse of the world is religion, and God would like for you to get rid of religion and come to Christ. I mentioned that to a man not too long ago, and immediately he countered by saying to me, “I want you to know, Dr. McGee, I’m a religious man.” He said, “You know, I’m a religious man by nature.” And I think I shocked him. I said to him, “Brother, you ought to get rid of your religion.” He says, “Why, aren’t you a religious man?” I said, “No, I’m not. I’m one that came as a sinner to Christ, and I have a relationship today with a Person.” That’s no religion; it’s a relationship. And that’s the important thing.

About Church of the Open Door
Built in 1914, the 4000-seat Church of the Open Door was conceived by R. A. Torrey who had come to Los Angeles to start a Bible institute (now known as Biola University) similar to Moody Bible Institute. Other pastors have included Louis T. Talbot (1932–1948) and J. Vernon McGee (1949–1970). The church is strictly non-denominational, though Evangelical. Its mission was to reach the lost of Los Angeles, which was reflected in the name ‘Church of the Open Door’ based on two passages of Scripture:

“I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” - Jesus Christ, John 10:9 KJV

“I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.” - Jesus Christ, Revelation 3:8 KJV
