You represent the most cloying aspect of Christianity.
It’s only when you paint yourself
Into the darkest of moral corners,
And only then,
Do you turn your life over to Christ.
You don’t go to Christ on prom night,
It’s only when you’ve messed up
Your life so horribly,
That nobody down here
Will talk to you anymore.
I see you on the news…
Then in court…
Eventually pleading guilty…
Being led off to jail…
Then all of sudden,
You find Christ.
Which leaves me asking,
How didn’t He see you first?
