Jefferson Bethke || Death Of Yolo || Spoken Word

  Partial Lyrics: Jefferson Bethke || Death Of Yolo || Spoken Word A roman cross, ya Jesus died on that I don’t care what you believe, read history; it’s a historical fact So the question is what will you do with this man of misery? Only six hours on that wood, yet it completely changed history. What’s weird though is we’ve pimped Jesus out, made his sacrifice foolery, We just come to church on Easter, and make his cross nice jewellery. The cross though wasn’t a symbol of faith; it was a symbol of death, I mean imagine if someone wore an electric chair around their neck? So we have to ask what was different about that man on that day, That could turn an instrument of death, to something that saves? See His cross is unique, because He was innocent, God actually became a man?! Now that is different. So on the cross he says I’m not dying […]

Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus, Spoken Word, Jefferson Bethke

Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus, Spoken Word, Jefferson Bethke What if I told you Jesus came to abolish religion, What if I told you voting Republican really wasn’t his Mission What if I told you Republican doesn’t automatically mean Christian, And just because you call some people blind doesn’t automatically give you vision. I mean if religion is so great, why has it started so many wars? Why does it build huge churches, but fails to feed the poor? Tells single mom’s God doesn’t love them if they’ve ever had a divorce, But in the Old Testament God actually calls religious people whores. Religion might preach grace, but another thing they practice, Tend to ridicule God’s people, they did it to John the Baptist. They can’t fix their problems and so they just mask it, not realizing religion is like spraying perfume on a casket. See the problem with religion is […]

Sex, Marriage, Fairytales || Spoken Word

Jefferson Bethke - Sex, Marriage, Fairytales || Spoken Word – Lyrics Sex Marriage and Fairytales Words: When a video like this comes out many people will want to be able to read and evaluate the words. Here are the words to Jefferson Bethke’s new spoken word poem called, Sex, Marriage, &  Fairytales. Disney Movies and Chick Flicks they put us in a weird position, They’ve distorted our reality because we forget they are actually fiction. Because in marriage we either get better or bitter, either joy or remorses, What we’re doing isn’t working just look at the rate of the divorces. So how’s your marriage? I mean common let’s be honest, It seams more like a prison than the paradise they were promised. We thought marriage was supposed to fulfil us and make us happy not lonely, But the truth is God’s main purpose is making you holy. You say, no one told me, it feels so odd, Where dating feels like […]
