A Case Against False Christianity - Poem by Njousi Abang

Albert Einstein says, "Small is the number
Of people who see with their eyes
And think with their minds."
People are made to believe
That without Christianity
They are nothing but lost desert folk
However, when they do become Christians
They sooner or later discover may be too late
That they are nothing for the remainder runs:
"You are dust and unto dust you shall return."

It is worse when other Christians
Treat you shabbily, dishonourably
And shamelessly discriminate against you
And terribly behave unlike Christ

In the face of all these you begin to wonder
Was it worth it after all?
Was your conversion not only a scam
To woe you into their fold
So as to reap where they did not sow?
Haven't someone somewhere
Discovered how precious and marketable
The name of the crucified Christ can be?
If Christ were to come back today
Will his shepherds and flock be ready
To receive Him and sing: Hosanna!
Hosanna! To the Lord of the Most High
Or are we going to hide shame-faced
Due to our burden of sin?
Are we going to give a good account
Of our stewardship and enter the Golden Gate?
Or will we be caught with sacks of money,
That we used His name to amass,
As if we are on an earthly trip to bribe
A custom official to let us through.
