Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus || Spoken Word
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 the Father.
