    Jas 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

    "Religion" there is Greek thrēskeia meaning "ceremonial observance:—religion, worshipping"

    Not an institution but one's spiritual beliefs and practices.

    "religion" is man-made religious systems that people use to control and manipulate other people. God hates them.

    Rev 2:6 Yet this you have: you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

    The Pharisees of biblical times and today as well as the Roman Catholic religion (and her Protestant daughters) are perfect examples of this.

    Jesus established a Church. He did not write a Bible. And he put Peter in charge of that Church, giving him the keys to the kingdom as a king would to a vicar. He told the Apostles that whatever they bind and loose on Earth they bind and loose it in Heaven also. 

    As these leaders had such authority, they established the requirements and methods of Apostolic Succession that still exists today. He said whoever listens to them listens to him.

    He told these leaders of the Church that they are to go out and baptize all nations.  He said to these leaders that they can hear and forgive or retain the sins of others. He told them to eat his flesh and drink his blood; and told them to do it often as a bloodless sacrifice in eternal memory of him.

    This ritualistic religion is outlined thoroughly in the Bible. And it still exists today.
