So, I’m being a little lazy today in posting a video my husband used in church Sunday. The sermon title was, “I Believe In God But…I’ve Had a Bad Experience.” Unfortunately one of the legacies of the Christian church has been to condemn rather than to show God’s grace and mercy to others. Many young people, whom churches are actively seeking, have stories to tell of feeling judged, condemned, unworthy or manipulated by well-intentioned members of the body of Christ.
This video was created by a man named Jefferson Bethke and is entitled “Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus”. In only 2 weeks this clip has received over 17 MILLION hits!! You might not agree with everything he has to say, but there’s something here that resonates with many. I think his point is valid. I’d love to know what you think. Linking up with Michelle today at Graceful.
Blessings and Peace,
