All Religion Ever Made Me Was a Sinner

On my way home from church this morning I heard the following song on the radio.  I italicizing the parts I particularly resonated with…

“More Like Falling in Love” by Jason Gray

Give me rules
I will break them
Give me lines
I will cross them
I need more than a truth to believe
I need a truth that lives, moves, and breathes
To sweep me off my feet
It ought to be

More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance

Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
It’s like I’m falling, oh
It’s like I’m falling in love

Give me words
I’ll misuse them
Obligations
I’ll misplace them
‘Cause all religion ever made of me
Was just a sinner with a stone tied to my feet
It never set me free

It’s gotta be

CHORUS

…It’s like I’m falling in love, love, love
Deeper and deeper
It was love that made
Me a believer
In more than a name, a faith, a creed

Falling in love with Jesus brought the change in me

*Sidenote:  I love that picture.

  1. Thanks for sharing that song! I am not sure if I have heard it or not..It reminds me to hold tight to Jesus and my relationship with him and not organized religion.

  2. I’ve struggled with religion for a long time. Either I feel guilty for my sins or I’m scared of punishment. Thanks for this post.
