The Kevin & Jeff exchange re: Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus video
Given the amount of nasty inter-Christian fighting that’s been going on this past week* this, from Kevin DeYoung really made my day.
No doubt, you’ve all seen the Jesus vs Religion spoken word (isn’t it just a poem said with a bit of attitude?) video which has gone viral:
It’s a pretty good video, though some have pointed out that Jesus was actually against false religion, and not all religion – but I think that’s kind of the point, and maybe it’s a bit unfair to get so semantic.
Kevin DeYoung went through with a fine-tooth comb, and Jeff Bethke, the video creator wrote back with real humility and generosity – just check out the extracts from their exchange. I wish we could all be like this!
* I’m clearly referring to the bruhaha about Mark Driscoll, and am shamelessly adding this note to generate traffic. Speaking of which, can you imagine what would happen if I wrote a post of Mark Driscoll, Tim Tebow and Justin Bieber having a smack-down? I think the internet would melt.
