Why does Jesus hate religion?

 Last visit home I saw this sign and had to take a picture. I'm more spiritual than religious and I don't know why Jesus hates religion, but I think it has something to do with the people who preach the word in order to profit from it. I can understand that and actually commend this church for putting it out there.

Many independent studies have shown the benefits of prayer, religion, spirituality, faith or whatever cultural practices you believe in, do in fact help in the healing process.

My sister lives in Bayport right next to Stillwater, how cool is that. I didn't know you lived in Minnesota, hello neighbor!

Zazzy, I replied to your email.

my thought is, religion is manmade... spirituality is more to do with the individual soul... :)

Hmmm. Good food for thought!

I feel like I have become much more spiritual over the past few years, and I attribute it to 1) becoming a parent and 2) exposure to some very, very critically ill people I have met in my career. You really can benefit hugely by having some faith and trust!

I think Jesus just kind of wanted us to love one another and not judge each other. Unfortunately organized religion does not always live up to those ideals.
