    So so true

    God uses so many to spread his true messages, this young, wide man is certainly one of them.

    Re: Bluey67 – And it's sad that so many have messed that one up, too. This guy makes me believe again. I already believe….but it gives me hope.
    The crazies, who are like "OH MY. YOU HAVE TO GO TO CHURCH AND FOLLOW THIS AND DO THAT AND NOT DO THAT. EEKKEREJWRWEJREWKRJWEKLFWJEKRW. BAD CHILD" are scary and shouldn't be given so much credit!

    I hate bestiality, but I love fuckin' goats.

    Some religions are good - my best friend's dad is a pastor. he does a greta job and her family is the most loving and amazing. So of course, there are the outliers.
    But for the majority….people are messing it up. I'm not saying that I know the keys to God & jesus. I do not! But who gives the Pope that authority? or some old white man in Texas who says this or says that? They have become dictators of religion. It's one thing to preach and give a message. But to disown people just because they are the way god made them?
    One of my favorite lines is the "mega" church idea..about how they have this huge church, but don't feed the poor. It's sadly true. I visited one of the mega churches this year, and had a panic attack like no other.
    Let's love each other, please!

    He is NOT saying do not go to church. He is saying follow Jesus, not a man made religion. People who do not go to church, always only hear that part of the message. He is saying don't get sucked into the stuff made up by man. Church was created by Jesus, to worship corporately. Many churches do church just fine.

    It's all made up. Including Jesus. There is no god. We come from dust. That's it folks. I'm not saying not to believe in whatever you want, but at least acknowledge reality.



  8. 8

    so now hes made believers out of nonbelievers. laughable. why cant people just follow their own instinct. we all know the difference between right and wrong.

    I've always believed this, i hate religion. I think Jesus, the Buddha, Muhammed etc were all teachers, explaining to people the true meaning of happiness. But people have misinterpreted and created groups that completely go against what they were trying to teach. It's about time people woke up!

    I don't understand why everyone loves this video. I hate religion, and don't believe in Jesus. There we go.

    Re: lisaosnow – You completely missed his point. His point was that religion, the institution, sometimes becomes distorted and the true meaning of what the religion is supposed to represent is corrupted. See Islam countries and the oppression of women (which is actually cultural), for example. Islamic teachings and Muhammad did not teach that a woman must be treated less than a man, that is not supported by the teachings, however, people still try to justify their actions (the oppression of women) by calling it religious or that they're "doing it for God".
    It all comes down to people forgetting the true meaning of what it means to be Christian. People get so caught up in the idea of being "religious" that they're just going through the motions or on the other hand call themselves Christian when their actions show the complete opposite. How can a person say that they are a truly religious person or a follower of Jesus (Christian) when they are disrespectful and intolerant of others? - the opposite of Jesus and his teachings and Christian values at their core.

    Re: blahblahblahblahblahblah00000 – Remember that were made from dust the next time you cut yourself and it heals itself, or you see a new born baby having its cord cut, or the rain fall and make a rainbow. I think it takes more faith to think we came from dust, than to acknowledge that we were created. Is the perfect position of the earth, and gravity that holds us in place, because of the dust too? What a HUGE coincidence! Billions of perfect coincidences caused by dust.

    Thank you Jesus for sending this awesome message.

    I LOVE THIS. It took some guts for this guy to come out and say what so many people are already thinking. The truth about Jesus is all about GRACE…not what different denominations, rules, and separations have morphed it into…
    If you have not already, look this guy up on Youtube and watch his other videos…

    Jesus was just a wise, philosophical man ahead of his time. We are all just as much a part of god as he was.

    Just what the world needs. Another person who thinks their way to heaven is right and everyone else is wrong based on a fairy tale that's been around for ages. I don't mean to sound cynical, but why don't we all stop telling each other what to believe and just let everyone live in peace? It's so puzzling to me that the word 'faith' has such a good connotation to it. Isn't believing in that which we do not know, despite all evidence otherwise, just a nicer word for 'ignorance'?

    If you're offended by what I said, I do apologize. However, after decades of this country's history tainted by the oppression of millions of people in the name of God's will/religion, it's time we put humanity before 'god'.

    Re: joethehobo – He's doing exactly what you're saying should be done; he's against these churches that preach hate and bigotry. He's trying to show that christianity is all in the bible and not in some hillbilly Texan's mouth that only really spouts lies and homophobia. You should watch the video again if you didn't understand it, ’cause this guy is saying what the world really needs to hear.
