Some friends of ours released a video several weeks ago called “Why I hate Religion but Love Jesus” we all sat in amazement as it reached 15 million views in a week. It’s created an amazing public discussion about issues of theology, faith, hypocrisy, legalism, self righteousness and well… Jesus and religion.
(Matthew Robertson aka CIK productions did a lot of editing and shooting of this… His production can be heard on our BreaxOver mixtapes)
It’s also been wild to see Jeff become a YouTube star virtually overnight and how he’s done an amazing job stewarding his platform in humility. Who he is outside of the video has been more inspirational then the actual video to us. His humble response to critics has been extremely convicting and challenging to me personally.
Seeing how our faith has become a target for some is interesting as well.
I found this Islam response to Jeff very well executing and articulated well.
Then another friend of ours did a response to the Islam response video. IV who’s worked closely with our long time producer DJ Rek released this video recently (which I also loved)
I think it’s pretty incredible that in 2012 we get to discuss topics millions of people over thousand of years have wrestled with. I think it’s even more incredible that technology has allowed us to do it in a very fresh & innovative way. All three of the videos are well shot & edited with some great typography. I’m honestly inspired and excited about the era we get to live in. This wasn’t possible 10 years ago or even 5 years ago.
It’s amazing the place culture is in. With all the discussion of faith, the social & religious climate is shifting, even the fame of unashamed christian athletes like Tebow and Jeremy Lin seems like something really cool is brewing.
This time last year Odd Future exploded on the pop scene and it felt like music & entertainment was in a much darker place, this year it seems like people have hope, faith and love for each other. Seems like people are asking questions only God can inspire. Let us know how as theBREAX we can better serve you & perhaps bring more clarity to some of the things you maybe wrestling with. And no, we won’t be releasing a response video about why we love Jesus & Technology.
