Why I Hate Religion But Love Jesus

A spoken word written by Jeff Bethke 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. Jeff maintains that 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 his journey to discover this truth.

    The difference between Religion and Christianity is key to our faith and our freedom. Religion enslaves and Christ came to set us free…free to obey Him and walk in the Spirit and not be under the Law. Christ came to show that as keeping rules and regulations did not work, His saving grace does. We need to guard our liberty in Him. We know that our past sins, present sins and future sins have been forgiven and washed away and they are far from Father God’s sight….He looks at us and sees His Son and His love draws us nearer to Jesus and becoming like Him. Jesus came to heal the broken-hearted….even though we may not realise we are broken, if we ask Him He will show us and heal us. We give all the honour and glory to our Saviour, Jesus Christ and thank you Jesus for going to the cross for us. You died so that we may die to self and live for you and be in relationship with you. Amen!
