Why would Jesus start a new religion?

Question

Why would Jesus start a new religion such as Christianity? Isn´t it enough that we just follow his footsteps all the way to heaven? Isn´t it enough that we just follow his example? I don´t think that Jesus is an exception that no one can follow. I believe that Jesus came to demonstrate an universal path back home, a path that we all can follow. Jesus said, "follow me."

NOTE: I cannot reply on your posts as I don´t have that option yet.

Jesus didn't start any religion.  He set up a relationship.

Jesus didn't start a "religion",I'm wondering how you came by that information ,perhaps we can discuss that another time......Jesus did explain what He came here to do

Quote

Matthew 5:17-20King James Version (KJV)

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

God Instructed His children with the Law,He spoke to them,lead them & guided them through the Prophets.......all that our Heavenly Father Did  made it very clear that man could not simply 'Follow" and JESUS is the EXCEPTION that could....it is IN HIM that we CAN,He is the Way,the Truth & the Life

Amen OneLight, it isn't about religion but it about having a one on one relationship with Christ.

Jesus did not start a new religion-not at all. Christianity is a fulfillment of the religion He had already setup. He was the perfect sacrifice for our sins, and the only way to heaven. merely doing what Jesus did, will not get you to heaven, as we are saved by grace, and not of works.
