I read this on a brothers blog, and found it to disturb something deep with in me. Because I was once under the same thought of what the word “Christianity” actually meant. A person who does not know Jesus, would honestly think that we are not loving, we are not extending grace, and we are some elite little club. Could not be further from the truth! “Christianity” means that I am a follower of Jesus Christ, it means that everything in my life is to line up with HIS teachings, and What the Bible has to say about my day to day life, which includes how I treat others. I have also experienced hurt from the “Christian” church, not everytime i have encountered it but it has happened. DO NOT take that to mean following Christ is learning to be down grading or demeaning to others, its is actually the opposite. Thank you Brother Johnny for this writing. Even if you read this and don’t agree, take a minute to pray for those that have been touched by a mock christianity, a self serving , and powerful thinking. Pray they will find the TRUTH of following Jesus.
Where did you come from, why are you here?
Why does your name cause pain in my…ear?
Who is your leader, what is your cause?
Who wrote your ordinances, who thought up your laws?
How can I escape you, where can I hide?
Could even Jesus protect me from your dominion so wide?
How great is this monster, how complex this machine!!
How mighty and awesome is this frightening thing!!
You twist and you turn and put on a new face,
You push your agenda and sell your cheap grace.
Like a vortex of death leading straight to insanity,
Where did you come from, oh where, Christianity?
