Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus

Hope You enjoy
A poem I wrote to highlight the difference between Jesus and false religion. In the scriptures Jesus received the most opposition from the most religious people of his day. At it's core Jesus' gospel and the good news of the Cross is in pure opposition to self-righteousness/self-justification. Religion is man centered, Jesus is God-centered. This poem highlights my journey to discover this truth. Religion either ends in pride or despair. Pride because you make a list and can do it and act better than everyone, or despair because you can't do your own list of rules and feel "not good enough" for God. With Jesus though you have humble confident joy because He represents you, you don't represent yourself and His sacrifice is perfect putting us in perfect standing with God!

  • Religion in general is no representation of who Jesus is, or what the Bible really says. If it's not in the Bible, it's from man. And if a doctrine forces people to believe or practice things that are unbiblical, it is exactly that - unbiblical. Killing somebody in the name of God, or promoting some other agenda in the name of God, does not mean that it is supported by the written Word or by God.

  • When eating I like Edam and Monetary Jack
    This statement is true, a total fact.
    These things I use on my bread and my toast
    And I send thanks for this gift to the Holy Ghost.

    When munching away on all these Cheeses
    My mind often wanders to the subject of Jesus.
    I love the sentiment and message of the story
    And totally understand why you worship his glory.
