    I ain’t judging you
    I ain’t even mad at you
    But I can’t help but wonder why you judging me?
    Is it because I choose to follow the things that I believe?
    I mean what? I believe you have the right to make your personal choices
    Don’t I have the right to make my own personal choices?
    I mean, you ain’t seen me write one bad thing about you
    I get out your way and let you do you
    So it’s funny to me that you say I’m judging you(though I don’t)
    And in the very same breath you judge me up one side and down the other
    I ain’t judging you
    I ain’t even mad at you
    I’m just being true to the things I believe
    Are you mad at me for believing in God? In Jesus?
    Because I believe the Book that says I am “in” the world but not “of “ the world?
    See, I found this Book. And it’s like a map that shows these holes and pits
    It shows these traps and snares but I didn’t really care
    Some are hidden covered in this and that and some come with big bright neon signs
    with big bright arrows that flash and say “come fall up in this”
    I thought fo’ sho’ these holes was the place to be
    It took me falling face down in the muck and mire of my own fleshly desires
    to realize that it wasn’t the place to be
    I opened my eyes to the piles of broken bodies
    Opened my ears to the wails moans and groans of souls full of sorrow, heartache and misery each singin’ their own version of the ultimate truth and the inevitable
    I even seen so many that were just pushed into the holes before they
    even knew what hit ‘em and some still don’t know
    And if it ain’t a hole tell me, why is it so, so easy to fall into
    yet so HARD to climb the heck out?
    See… I ain’t judging you
    I ain’t even mad at you
    But I must admit I’m kind of sad that you seem to be walking straight into
    where this Book says a hole is
    but if you tell me “mind ya business” then I’ma mind my business
    I just hope you know that the concern is born of love
    Even love from above
    I don’t want to see you fall in no hole crying ‘bout, “help!! I’ve fallin’ and…”
    And for the many many souls in the holes
    I can’t just stand by and watch their songs of joy as they turn into cry’s of pain
    and suffering and never offer them a hand or point out to them the best
    places to start that inescapable climb
    Don’t be mad at me because I choose to be a Christian in word and deed
    So that I represent the One True God the way He told me to
    I ain’t here to spoil your fun or cramp your style, poop on your party, etc…
    You got your own choices and consequences to live with
    Just like I got my own choices and consequences
    I ain’t judging you
    I ain’t even mad at you…
    So tell me, who’s judgeing who?
