A response to the video "Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus". The purpose of this video is to do a response from a Catholic perspective, in a spirit of love, but also with a spirit of passion to defend our Mother the Church. The things that are said are not meant to offend, but we do have to be direct about what we believe and what we stand for. Join the discussion at http://phatmass.com

Special thank to Queen of all Saints Basilica and Monsignor John Pollard for allowing us to film in the church.
Lyrics: What if I told you that Jesus loves religion And that by his coming as man he brought his religion to fruition See this had to be addressed, the use of illogical terms and definitions You clearly have a heart for Jesus but its fueling atheistic opinions See what makes his religion great is not errors of wars and inquisitions It's that broken men and women to participate in his mission Clearly Jesus says I have not come to abolish I came to fulfill the law and I came to fulfill the prophets (Matthew 5:17) And lines about building big churches and tending to the poor Sounds a bit like Judas when the perfume was being poured (John 12:5) See His religion is the largest worldwide source of relief For the poor, the hungry, the sick and repentant thief Oceans of compassion, opening wide the doors For single mothers, widows and orphans, married and divorced (James 1:27) We all detest hypocrisy, and empty show is just the worst But blaming religion for contradiction Is like staring at death, and blaming the hearse. See the teacher will teach when the students are ready to listen But those that choose to sit in the pews and refuse the good news Is not the fault of religion. And If I have the Jersey and I'm playing for the Bulls There's going to be some boundaries, regulations and some rules. You can't have Christ without his Church; you can't have the King without his Kingdom Sins of the Body and internal treason will never ever make me leave him And that Jesus said it is done, is absolutely true But he also gave us a mission with many things to DO. Jesus says if you love me, you will Do what I command. (JN 15:14) Go and Baptize in the name of the Father, Son & Spirit in Every Land. (MT 28:19) And on the night he was betrayed he took his men in the Upper Room Take at eat this is my body take and drink my blood for you. A New covenant you see, an act connected to the tree, Do this time and time again in Memory of Me. (Mt 26:26-28) And at last with crown of thorns beaten beyond comprehension His eyes were looking for yours and mine; it was divine, no human invention. So as for religion I love it, I have one because Jesus rose from the dead and won. I believe When Jesus said IT IS FINISHED, His religion had just begun.
