Jesus > Religion

The newest viral sensation is a video entitled "Why I love Jesus but hate religion."   

Although I am sure I don’t have to tell you that.   As this was posted three whole days ago, to most of you this might already be old news. 

Be careful to only click on the original.  They will put anything on the internet…

Pros: Good cinematography.  Well filmed and dramatic music.  The kid makes SOME good points in which the humanity of the Church is apparent.

Cons: The majority of what he says are heretical one-liners wrapped up like candy.  It becomes pretty apparent that by religion he actually means Church, our Church. 

Before you go sucking down this stranger-candy, take a moment to think about your relationship with the person of Christ.

Does your experience of encountering the person of Christ through the Roman Catholic Church line up with what he is saying? 

After you have used your OWN reason to form an opinion about this video, check out what Marc Barnes from Bad Catholic has to say on the subject.  I think you might find that he puts words to the tension you feel after watching this video.

You can access Barnes' article HERE.

Let's be cautious and prudent about sensation.
