On 'Jesus > Religion'

In the course of the past week, it seems that a viral video has come up that pits Jesus against Religion. You may have heard of it: 'Jesus > Religion'. Sadly, the guy is really talented and has some good points, but misses the mark for the most part. His emotionally charged blanket statements can easily lead us astray if we don't take the time to think about it. In the past few days, I've gotten a handful of emails from people with questions or concerns in response to it. To respond adequately would take a while, since his broad statements need some precise responses. Thus this post is meant to be a simple starting point if you're looking for a response to it.  I posted below three videos. The first is the above-mentioned video. The latter two are responses from individuals that I thought were cleaver and well-done. Enjoy!
