Iím Not A Christian Anymore
Author: Mark Spencer

Iím Not a Christian anymore
Is what I heard you say before
You told me that you once believed
Yet by this claim Iím not deceived

You may have once acknowledged God
But your commitment was a fraud
You simply took Him for a ride
His principals were not applied

God doesnít leave a heart thatís true
If His spirit resides in you
One only turns away his eye
When faith proclaimed was just a lie

So donít tell me what you once were
I donít believe what you infer
I know the truth as does the Lord
And this pretense wonít be ignored.

Creating doubt is the intent
In claiming that your faith was spent
And only those who donít believe
Follow the paths deceivers weave

So hold your tongue until itís time
For all to learn which paradigm
Awaits us after our last breath
Will it be life or dreamless death

Iíve been there once although Iím sure
You think my journey wasnít pure
Just chemicals within the brain
Is how the doubting soul explains

Events they do not understand
Unless experienced first hand
This is what your faith was about
Your mind was always filled with doubt

And if you say that isnít true
The only one youíve fooled is you
True faith has never filled your soul
Itís always been an empty hole

You have never been a Christian
God was never your lifeís mission
For faith like yours to simply cease
A wolf need only doff his fleece

I'm not a christian anymore

this poem is truly the work of an artist,it has very good delicacy of language and accuracy.But our faith in God needs to be sustained in spite of the odds against us.We must continue to strive despite our short comings to win the Crown at the end of life.It isn't easy, but God the giver of strength and grace is ever there to help us.

Ouch!

Mark, one of the things that I've always liked about your poetry is the fact that you never pull your punches. It as though we can look at the same subject, and while I see the surface, you see so much deeper! I admire that.
