Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus by Jefferson Bethke

[Verse: Jason Bethke]

What if I told you Jesus came to abolish religion

What if I told you voting republican really wasn't his mission

What if I told you republican doesn't automatically mean Christian

And just because you call some people blind

Doesn't automatically give you vision

I mean if religion is so great why has it started so many wars

Why does it build huge churches but fails to feed the poor

Tells single moms God doesn't love them if they've ever had a divorce

But in the old testament God actually calls religious people whores

Religion might preach grace but another thing they practice

Tend to ridicule God's people they did it to John The Baptist

They can't fix their problems and so they just mask it

Not realizing religions like spraying perfume on a casket

See the problem with religion is it never gets to the core

It's just behavior modification like a long list of chores

Like lets dress up the outside make look nice and neat

But it's funny that's what they use to do to mummies

While the corps rots underneath

Now I ain't judgin I'm just saying quit putting on a fake look

Cause there's a problem

If people only know you're a Christian by your Facebook

I mean in every other aspect of life you know that logic's unworthy

It's like saying you play for the Lakers just because you bought a jersey

You see this was me too but no one seemed to be on to me

Acting like a church kid while addicted to pornography

See on Sunday I'd go to church but Saturday getting faded

Acting if I was simply created just to have sex and get wasted

See I spent my whole life building this facade of neatness

But now that I know Jesus I boast in my weakness

Because if grace is [water](undefined) then the church should be an ocean

It's not a museum for good people it's a hospital for the broken

Which means I don't have to hide my failure I don't have to hide my sin

Because it doesn't depend on me it depends on him

See because when I was God's enemy and certainly not a fan

He looked down and said I want that man

Which is why Jesus hated religion and for it he called them fools

Don't you see so much better than just following some rules

Now let me clarify I love the church I love the bible and yes I believe in sin

But if Jesus came to your church would they actually let him in

See remember he was called a glutton and a drunkard by religious men

But the son of God never supports self righteousness not now not then

Now [back](undefined) to the point one thing is vital to mention

How Jesus and religion are on opposite spectrum's

See one's the [work](undefined) of God but one's a man made invention

See one is the cure but the other's the infection

See because religion says do Jesus says done

Religion says slave Jesus says son

Religion puts you in bondage while Jesus sets you [free](undefined)

Religion makes you blind but Jesus makes you see

And that's why religion and Jesus are two different clans

Religion is man searching for God Christianity is God searching for man

Which is why salvation is freely mine and forgiveness is my own

Not based on my merits but Jesus's obedience alone

Because he took the crown of thorns and the blood dripped down his face

He took what we all deserved I guess that's why you call it grace

And while being murdered he yelled

"Father forgive them they know not what they do."

Because when he was dangling on that cross he was thinking of you

And he absorbed all of your sin and buried it in the tomb

Which is why I'm kneeling at the cross saying come on there's room

So for religion no I hate it in fact I literally resent it

Because when Jesus said it is finished I believe he meant it
