YouTube Thursdays

This week's video was first uploaded to YouTube on 01.10.12, so you may have seen this one. 
It is called "Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus."
This is powerful.
This video has over 20 million views!!
Below I have copied and pasted what he wrote to go along with the video for you to read before you watch.  The video made such an impact there is now apparel for sale (link is below). 

"A poem I wrote 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. 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 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 the Father."

Wanna support a good cause and also wear something that sparks conversation? Peep the Jesus is greater than religion shirts.
