what if I told you Jesus came to abolish religion
what if i told you voting Republican
really wasn't his mission
what if I told you republicans doesn't automatically mean Christian
And just because you call some people blind doesn't automatically give you this
I mean if religion is so great
why has it started so many wars?
Why does it build huge churches, but fails to feed the poor?
Tells single moms God doesn’t love them if they’ve ever been divorced
Yet God in the Old Testament actually calls the religious people whores
Religion might preach grace, but another thing they practice,
Tend to ridicule Gods people, they did it to John the Baptist,
they can't fix their problems and so they just mask it,
Not realizing that religion is just like sprayin perfume on a casket
See the problem with religion is that it never gets to the core,
It’s just behavior modification, like a long list of chores.
Let’s dress up the outside, make things look nice and neat,
Its funny that’s what they do to mummies, while the corpse rots underneath,
Now I ain’t judging I’m just saying be careful of putting on a fake look,
Because there’s a problem if people only know that you’re a Christian by your Facebook.
I mean in every other aspect of life, you know that logics unworthy
It's like saying you play for the lakers just because you bought a jersey
See this was me, too. But no one seemed to be on to me,
I was acting like church kid, while addicted to pornography.
See on Sunday I go to the church, but on Saturday getting faded,
Acting as if I was simply created to have sex and get wasted.
Spend my whole life putting on this façade of neatness,
But now that I know Jesus, I boast in my weakness.
Because of grace is water, then the church should be an ocean,
It's not a museum for good people, it’s a hospital for the broken
Which means I don't need to to hide my failures, I don’t have to hide my sin,
Because it doesn’t depend on me, it depends on him.
See because when I was Gods enemy and certainly not a fan,
God looked down and said, “I want that man!”
Which is why Jesus hate religion and have already called them fools
Don’t you see so much better than just following some rules?
Now let me clarify, I love the church, I love the bible, and yes I believe in sin
But if Jesus came to the church, would they actually let Him in?
Remember He was called a drunkard and a glutton by “religious men”
The Son of God not supported self-righteousness, not now, not then.
Now back to the point, one thing I think is vital to mention,
How Jesus and religion are on opposite spectrums,
One is the work of God; one is a man made invention,
One is the cure but the other one is the infection.
Because Religion says do, Jesus says done.
Religion says slave, Jesus says son,
Religion puts you in bandages, but Jesus sets you free.
Religion makes you blind, but Jesus makes you see.
And that's why religion and Jesus are two different clans,
Religion is man searching for God but Christianity is God searching for man.
Which is why salvation is freely mine and forgiveness is my own,
Not based on my merits but Jesus’ obedience alone.
Because he took the crown of thorns, and blood that dripped down his face
He took what we all deserved, that’s why we call it grace.
While being murdered he yelled “father forgive them, they know not what they do”,
Because when he was dangling on that cross, he was thinking of you
He observed for all your sin, and he buried it in the tomb,
Which is why I'm kneeling at the cross now saying come on there’s room
So for religion, I hate it. In fact, I literally resent it.
Because when Jesus said it is finished, I believe He meant it.
