A new viral video is creating a stir among church leaders due to it's strong stance against religion. The video, "Why I Hate Religion, but Love Jesus," has more than 11 million views after only five days on YouTube. The author and spoken word poet, Jefferson Bethke, says he created the video to "highlight the difference between Jesus and false religion." In a recent blog on The Gospel Coalition, Kevin DeYoung says that the video's premise—that Jesus came to abolish religion—simply isn't true or theologically accurate. "The word 'religion' occurs five times in English Standard Version of the Bible. It is, by itself, an entirely neutral word," says DeYoung. The rest if the story is at http://www.churchleaders.com/pastor...er&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily-Update I have heard pastors, people in the congregation, and denominational leaders talk about religion as something they hate. What I wonder is how many actually read their Bible. The entire book of James address creedal faith and compares it to a genuine saving faith. It bothers me to let the cults such as Mormonism use the word "Christian" and distort its true meaning while others walk away and adopt a new name "Christ followers". What will new believers think when the read the word Christian in the Bible. Will they be reminded of what a genuine Christian looks like or Mormonism?
