Us, From The Outside.
(How unbelievers see Christians)
I see you at my job, I see you at a restaurant and in the grocery store.
You have the worst attitude I have ever seen, You do nothing but complain.
You leave bad tips, and a tract that I just throw away anyway.
95% of you that go to church, don’t go for the right reasons.
You go to hang out with your firends, and talk about sports.
Most of you don’t even go into service at all.
The 5% of you who do go for the right reason, don’t get anything out of it.
You sit quietly, and listen to the preacher, cause that’s what you were taught.
But then you go out and live your life, not allowing it to change you.
And you are constantly bringing up hate, I thought Jesus was about love.
But I hear you say that you hate homosexuals, and drug addicts, and prostitutes.
I’m pretty sure you are hating the people that Jesus was around the most.
But I mean, you do love, I can’t take that away from you.
You love money, and being greedy, and judging others.
I’m not trying to be mean, but if you are going to take a stand for Christ.
At least stop giving him a bad name, by the way that you live.
We are tired of your lies, we just want you to be yourself around us.
Don’t think that you have to be all fancy around us, just tell us what’s on your heart.
Live the way Jesus would, Live a life trying to make a difference.
Some of the topics in the essay above, are from actual conversations I have had with unbelievers. I’m not just making this stuff up. This is how we as Christ Followers are honestly seen most of the time. It’s time to make a change.
