The Deception of the so-called “Christian Life”

Posted on Updated on

Since when am I the standard

for perfection and holiness?

You may steal, lie and cheat,

but I’m also full of mess!

 

Last time I checked the Word,

the goal was for us to be more like Christ.

So please help me understand

how what we’ve become resembles the Christian life?

 

I measure your sin

by how I feel it compares to mine.

But when did that become our focus?

When did we cross that line?

 

Have we been so deceived

that we honestly can’t see,

that Satan is busy at work –

in Christians today – literally!

 

Blinded by anger, bitterness, and hate,

we gossip, slander, degrade, and lie;

forgetting the very words of Christ 

and the main reason He came to die.


Love was the concept he preached over and over again,

the one command he left us to live by and for.

Yet love continues to vanish in our midst

as if thrown out the window or trampled on the floor.

 

We walk around pointing fingers at each other

playing right into the devil’s hands.

Neglecting time with God in His Word

and instead making up our own Christian demands.

 

We rewrite His rules

and interpret them our own way,

defining right and wrong

based on what we personally believe and say.

 

Not realizing that we too

are greatly deceived:

by lies, false teaching,

and a corrupt society.

 

The world now dictates how we live for Christ.

We adapt, modify, and daily transform,

moving further away from God;

Metamorphosis, in its worse form.
