Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus

Being raised by a hard-core Catholic grandmother I knew she would be beyond dismayed and would probably reckon my soul as damned if she ever finds out that I stopped going to church (or hearing mass) when I went to college. It would be unfair however to blame it all on UP's academic and religious freedom however, it is undeniable that the university really had a huge impact in moulding my personal and spiritual beliefs.

But I digress. I'm posting this video here because he was seriously spot-on about almost everything religion embodies since a millennium ago. I am not a preachy type of person - make that NEVER - but this kid threw some realm of truth that our church (or in my case, my grandmother) would never want us to descant (insert "erehe" or "filibustero" name calling here).

PS: I believe in God, in Jesus, the Architect, the Great Hand, the Maker of this universe or whatever other name He goes by. I just don't fully support what our church here is preaching. They have a major issue with consistency.

There's a great difference between being Religious and being Spiritual. Jesus said it himself, "God is Spirit." If you kept on focusing on dogma, you miss the whole point of being spiritual. God is a spirit, and not a body, or a corporeal substance, not Catholicism, not Born Againism, or Iglesia ni Cristoism, or any Religion or Idealogy.

"For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth." John 4:24
