Religion vs Jesus

How can these people be so foolish thinking religion is the way,
Don’t you see that there is one which is through Jesus, He’s the way,
What religion does is throw laws to bring you down,
But what Jesus has done was to fulfil all the laws; he died on the cross to bring you up through him,
Religion is nothing but a man searching for God,
But the truth is that God is the one, who he is searching for you,
Religion is nothing but a barrier; it pushes you far from your creator,
Jesus is the great I am; He brings you closer to your creator,

Religion tells you to do; Jesus tells you it is done,
Religion brings you burdens; Jesus sets you free,
Religion makes you dead; Jesus makes you live,
Religion is made by man; Jesus is made by God,

Religion says that you have to be perfect if you want to go to heaven,
Jesus says come as you are; follow me and I will show you a true way to heaven,
Religions points at the sinners and make them feel ashamed,
Jesus points at the religious Pharisee’s and puts them all to shame,
Religion is like man dressing up a dead man’s corpse,
Following my lord and saviour; I can just walk without shame,
Religion forces you to pay your penalty fines, to die because of your sin,
Jesus has already paid your penalty fines; go sin no more because your sins have been forgiven.

Religion destroys; Jesus restores,
Religion is man-made; Jesus is by God’s grace,
Religion leads to a wide road of destruction; Jesus leads to a narrow road of peace,
Religion fails; Jesus reigns,

Let us rejoice, let us be set free, let us give him the glory, let his name be exaulted,

Peace be with you from God the father and our lord Jesus Christ.
