Excellent video! This man's view on the original video is pretty close to mine.

Wow people totally misinterpret what Jeff is saying. I think its a funny coincidence that this video is posted because I just saw and talked with Jeff at a youth confence less then 10 hours ago. But he isn't talking about God's religion, which is to help widows, etc. But how everyother religion is built upon 'our' way to God. But rather Jeff is going over the relationship instead of religion. Religion is built upon the premise that my actions bring me to God or justify me. But Jeff talked alot about the prodigal son, even though the son did bad and came back, the story was actually to the pharisees and scribes who are the religious and they were being welcomed in but Jesus leaves the story open ended. Jesus does hate religion, as much as He hates sin. Both sons were offered in though. Jeff said that it is when you place your faith in something in other then Jesus to save you that you have a problem. Like when the Galations added circumcision to the saving process. You know I think the main problem here is just that Jeff didn't make the video long enough to get into each aspect of it. But to do that it would be hours long and would not accomplish what it is meant to do. The entire thing is right, but your interpretations are wrong.

You make a very good point. Interestingly, the interpretation of this video depends largely on your own definition of religion. If by saying religion, you mean a moral code and relationship with God that helps guide our lives, then no, Jesus isn't against religion. If by saying religion, you mean placing the laws above your relationship with God, and using them to make you seem better than your fellow man, then yes, Jesus is absolutely against religion.
