The Internet and Jesus

I love Jesus but hate religion CLICK to watch video

I suggest you watch this Youtube video, viewed more than 10,000,000 times, with a 10 to 1 like versus dislike rating, and ask yourself the following questions:

1. How much of what this obviously sincere young man is saying makes sense to you?

2. What doesn’t make sense to you?

3. If you were going to debate with him, how would you begin?

The Internet is how many young people form their opinions about Jesus, religion and church. How ought your local church respond to the Internet?

Let me know what you think.

  1. I was fortunate enough to be taught by the Christian Brothers who taught me to question everything, including my religion. This young man is trying to separate a fundamental issue of religious organizations, that being they are man made, but based upon the teachings of Jesus. We can only aspire to be like Jesus, but it’s very clear that time and again organized religion falls short of that goal. The Christain Brothers were very adept at making their students understand this, and that it is up to us to make change.
    I did not hear in the words of this rhymer that he had the courage to be part of the change, only that he wanted to point out the problems. Jesus knew that pointing out problems was easy, changing things for the better is difficult.
    I would challenge this person to join in, and help to change his chosen religion for the better, but never stop questioning.
