    The Unchristian(like) Christian

    Give unto Ceasar…that which is Ceasar’s
    And, Give unto God everything else


    How many of you know that
    Being a good Christian
    Requires you to be a good citizen?

    ”Obey the higher authorities”
    Those put in positions…Over you

    My God is an orderly God…And, yes, He’s drama free
    Don’t be giving me attitude when you’re speaking to me
    “Love your neighbor as yourself” And obey all the rules
    Don’t choose to fornicate yourself…For, salvation, you will lose

    The Unchristian Christian

    When he, or she, gives praise to God
    And Jesus Christ…our savior and Lord
    He is the one who claims to know
    What the bible says…and how things should go

    “You shouldn’t spank your child
    Don’t you know that’s not good.”
    He will try to impose his will
    If he could

    Coz “Spare the rod and spoil the child”
    Doesn’t register as it should


    They claim to love God…claiming to respect His commands
    Yet, push their own agenda…whenever they can
    Contradicting His dictates…when doing their thang
    “This is who I am” coz their game don’t change


    “I wanna be married in a church”
    That’s what she said
    Of her third marriage
    When she was ready to wed
    To be blessed by God…and spiritually filled
    Doesn’t she know that goes against God’s will

    When her reasons for divorce was never his cheating
    Just attitude and hostilities…She didn’t contend with no beatings

    Has anyone told her that an adulterous mate
    Is the only justification for a remarriage date
    Otherwise her marriage isn’t sanctioned by God
    Just an adulterous affair…and she’s asking His nod
    Like it doesn’t matter what kinda person she be
    When questioned, she responds
    “I’m just trying to be me”

    You do yo’ thang
    You break the rules
    Then claim you’re Christian
    Crying your (unchristian) blues

    ~ Do you think He’s in the mood

    Whatever happened to obeying the laws, and
    Turning them jaws, and
    Recognizing false prophets when they call, and
    “Thou shalt not lie,” and
    Why do you ask why
    (Did God let that happen, anyway)

    ~ Disobedience

    Ministers in the pulpits…Pimping women for free
    Wanting them in his harem…trying hard to be me

    He helped himself to double helpings…of all she would give
    Her cherry. Strawberry. To the dungeon, she lives


    She’s “holier than thou,” with her grunts and growls
    …Shouts “Amen” aloud, when she’s out with her crowd
    But when surrounded by people who’re not supposed to know her
    Her old personality’s unleashed…it doesn’t have to control her
    All of her efforts are thrown by the way
    ‘til she steps in the halls of her church…on Sunday

    Is it right that I judge the things that you do
    When claiming to be SAVED
    But knowing it’s not TRUE

    (Be) in the club EVERY NIGHT of the week, if you could
    But, on Sunday…O, Sunday
    “Yes, Lord, I’ve been good”

    Don’t claim to be a soldier…if that’s not who you are
    Soldiers stand tall…will defend their position next to God
    They don’t have to wonder if they’re doing the right thing
    Their heart tells them so…while their soul says, Amen


    Exercising faith is a thing of the past
    We don’t work at our praying
    For the things that we ask
    We sit on the sidelines
    Waiting for God to provide
    All that we ask
    EVEN…when we’ve lied

    I
    Know
    That we’re human
    But that’s no excuse
    For being mean
    Cantankerous
    And blatantly abusive

    Learn to love your SELF
    And share that with others
    Learn to stand up for right
    Support your sisters and brothers
    Give the whole of your heart
    To Jehovah our God
    That when judgment day comes
    They don’t have to tell you what was​

    This was a message for all!


    Reminds me of what my former pastor used to say, "I'm not impressed with full pews on Sunday morning.....I'm concerened about your 'Saturday Night."


    You stepped on some toes up in heah, Brother Baller!

    Like they say in church, "If you can't say 'Amen," just say OUCH!" (lol)

    GOOD MESSAGE!

    God don't like hypocrites...

    ...so, if you're gonna be a soldier in His army, KNOW THE RULES--what the bible says--and be all you can be. you don't hav'ta try to fool me. God knows your heart. He sees your ALL. He's the only one that matters.

    BE TRUE TO YOURSELF.

    THANKS for reading.

    I remember a time in my early teens when I saw some Christians in my Church do some "Unchristian(like)" stuff that tripped me out.

    my favorite verse,

    some people forget that...

    ...those who stumble others will pay the greater price...for KNOWLEDGE carries with it RESPONSIBILITY. a motto i love: it is the responsibility of the enlightened, to enlighten those less enlightened than themselves. even in God's house, you have the MATURE ONES and the BABES. let's do what we need to do.
