Can You Love Jesus and Hate His Church?

It’s a common argument many have made: Jesus is sweet, but Christians, and the churches full of them, are lame.

Not long ago a video made the rounds nearly everywhere that explained why a relationship was better than religion. It was another jab on the church and a plus one for Jesus.

On the one hand this seemingly common understanding of Christianity should cause Christians and churches to reflect on how they can be more like this Jesus people are drawn to, while on the other hand we must also recognize Jesus and his bride are not so easily separated.

I wanted to share this video with you because it represents a much healthier way of seeing how relationship, religion, Jesus, Christians, and the church blend together without having to build walls around the parts we like or don’t like.

Do you love Jesus and dislike the church? Why? Why not?
