Why I hate religion, but love Jesus

Religion says: Do.
Jesus says. Done.

Religion says: Slave.
Jesus says: Son.

Religion puts you in bondage.
But Jesus sets you free.

Religion makes you blind.
But Jesus makes you see. 

"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!"

(Jefferson Bethke)
