A good start)

Here is a popular youtube video that I believe is a good tool to convey a solid point. Simply that Jesus is what needs to be the focus and our relationship with him. Just acting like we are Christians by words alone does not make us some how better. We need to act like true Christians and preach our weaknesses at the same time we need to be helping our brothers and sisters when we see an opportunity.

Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus || Spoken Word 

I noticed that there was a lot of video responses that were somewhat trolling this video. It seems like there are a lot of religious people and or Christians that seemed to think it is smart to tell him that he is wrong in some of his rhetoric. Personally, I think it is silly to judge this video as bashing the church in any way. It is very easily understood that he thinks that we should be following Jesus' model, not that model of the religious leaders at the time that were trying to kill him. When you see Cardinals, Archbishops, and Priests wearing golden robes, sitting in a lavish environment with a scepter in hand. You begin to wonder why the church isn't using more of it's offerings to feed the hungry and heal the sick. Surely the orphans do not see the power of God through the mighty clothing and vast stage that much of the church has created as it's setting. They would much prefer some bread and clean water. I do believe that God deserves glory and yes he has much and should be mighty. But at what cost are we allowing the face of our faith to be shaped by that of a minority that does not represent the common Christians values. What is the #1 Golden Rule?? In Matthew chapter 7 it says "Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you." I believe this is the core of our faith. I also believe that inherently we all want to be treated equally, while at the same time we want to love and develop relationships. We are social beings, and everyone has a great potential within them, as any one who has not given up in life will tell you. Anyways about time to start getting these vlogs started :p 

-God Bless

He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:29-31
