Spoken word: Why I hate religion, but love Jesus by Janyl Benyl

Hey lovelies

A spoken word poetry I made in response to "Why I hate religion, but love Jesus" since January actually.
If you have not seen the original I suggest you click 'watch on youtube' so you can see the original too via the related videos. It will make this more comprehensible.


Christianity is a lifestyle
I'm not talking about being bound by doctrine
but you must be ready to make the sacrifice
The church is supposed to be a place for the broken
but being broken shouldn't be infinite
That is the reason why Jesus came
so that in him we might be saved
And whom the father has set free,
Is definitely free indeed
The church shouldn't be a museum for good people
But would we rather have it described by bad and evil?
Like the same one that terrorizes man,
the one we can readily call a christian?

I'm not saying we are expected to be perfect,
But never forget that the just shall only live by faith
He giveth grace and showeth mercy
and that is the reason why it feels easy
And if the life you live is not about his laws and him?
Then I'm sorry it doesn't have anything to do with Jesus
We are his and were made of him
and when it comes to dealing with sin,
we should always let him take the lead
He never fails to speak
but the question is 'do we ever care to listen'?

He has given us a choice
the difference between right and wrong
We are filled with power
To overcome and conquer
Because in our hearts
the greater one abides
But we have to make a conscious step
To always remain connected
Not constantly aligning our thoughts to everything he dreads,
 ignoring and acting like he doesn't even exist,
living just for the pleasure of ourselves,
and remembering him only when we think he deserves

He says abide in me
and in you I will
And if you love me
my commandments you will keep
To keep him in our hearts
should be a constant task
And you can't be broken forever
'Cause that's why he is the healer
And when you are healed,
It means you are no longer the victim
And when he said it is finished,
He meant sin was diminished
The battle was won
to make you the greater one
You are not a victim
so quit trying to wallow in self pity
