The problems with religion

   Posted by: admin   in The Church

Here is Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church, Seattle, addressing why he hates religion. Thanks to Erik Raymond for this link on his ever-excellent blog.

Quotes:

  • “If I obey, God will love me… Redemption says ‘God does love you. God has loved you in the life, death, burial, resurrection of Jesus. God demonstrates his love for us in this, while we were yet sinners, still totally jacked up in every way, Christ died for us.'”
  • “Religion says the world is filled with two kinds of people: good people, bad people… Redemption teaches that there are two kinds of people: repentant and unrepentant, because all people are bad… If the world was an old western, we’d all have black hats…”
  • “Religion cares about your birth, redemption cares about your new birth.”
