jesus vs. Religion

What usually turns people away from Christianity is not Jesus, but religion. “Jesus is cool but I can’t handle those holier than thou judgmental hypocrites, the expectations, the group-think, and all the rules.” 

But the same things people reject about church… Jesus also rejected.  Many of the things we think and feel about “church” were never part of following Jesus in the first place. Is following Jesus just another religion or is it something better? Is there something more? What’s the difference?
