Going back to basics, back to essentials, is a necessary and important thing to do from time to time.

I have observed the ongoing crisis of a Christ-less Christianity (or, “Churchianity”). How did the Christian religion get into this situation?

By forgetting the essentials. By focusing on things that don’t matter. By being led astray from the simplicity of Christ. By majoring in minors. By “adding to” the main thing with a 10,000 lesser things.

So it seems that going back to basics… back to essentials… is a necessary and important thing to do from time to time.

If you take away all the extra junk that religion has added to Jesus over the last 2,000+ years, what are you left with? What are the basic, essential, simple truths that are most important?

Each of these 7 Essential Teachings of Jesus can be reduced to a single word. We’ll review each of them in this series of teachings.
