How did the cross KILL religion?
Breaking The Hex
life with God after the cross killed religion
WHAT IS THE HEX? It is living on BOTH sides of the cross, blending religious obligation with relationship.
Quotes from Breaking The Hex
“Jesus didn’t come to make bad people good but to make DEAD people ALIVE.”
“Not only did He die for your sins, He KILLED THE SYSTEM that condemned you.”
“If Christianity were about your spiritual progress then the symbol would have been a LADDER instead of a CROSS.”
“Religion is all about SIN MANAGEMENT.”
“If the record of debt has been cancelled by God, that means you…do…not…OWE…God…anything! (STUNNING!)”
“One thing I have noticed over the years is that people do NOT need a license to sin. People sin well WITHOUT A LICENSE.”
“On THIS SIDE of the cross, you do not need to ‘come into His presence.’ He will never leave you nor forsake you. Nothing you can do will separate you from the love of God that is in Jesus Christ.”
by Roger Fields & Jeff Fields
Have you ever wondered WHY…
- the Apostle Paul tells some Christians they are under a “HEX?”
- Paul never mentions “discipleship” or the word “disciple?”
- the New Testament writers never tell people to “follow Christ?”
- it’s so hard to find scriptures after the cross that tell us to “serve the Lord?”
- ALL the believers in Acts are called “disciples?”

You crazy Galatians! Did someone put a hex on you? Have you taken leave of your senses? Something crazy has happened, for it’s obvious that you no longer have the crucified Jesus in clear focus in your lives. His sacrifice on the cross was certainly set before you clearly enough.
Let me put this question to you: How did your new life begin? Was it by working your heads off to please God? Or was it by responding to God’s Message to you? Are you going to continue this craziness? For only crazy people would think they could complete by their own efforts what was begun by God.
If you weren’t smart enough or strong enough to begin it, how do you suppose you could perfect it? Did you go through this whole painful learning process for nothing? It is not yet a total loss, but it certainly will be if you keep this up!
(Galatians 3:1-4 Message Bible)
