Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus
A poem about the difference between Jesus and false religion. In the scriptures Jesus received the most opposition from the most religious people of his day. At its 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 cant 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 dont represent yourself and His sacrifice is perfect putting us in perfect standing with God!
