The following are some excerpts of a spoken word event and there were a few of the lines that really caught my ear...
God’s people, don’t look at me like that.
Your pupils look like firing bullets, knocking
us out one by one by one, saying you can’t come in
because you never learned how to pray.
God's people, don’t look at me like that. Your
iris’s look like vortexs of instability rolling
our ground like an earthquake telling us to
we can’t come in.
God’s people, don’t look at me like
that, don’t shake your head at my
appearance just because I have ink on my arm doesn’t
make me less of a person, just because I have color on my
eyelids, just because my skirts above my
knee, just because my fists don’t unwind and
interlock doesn’t make me less of a person.
I know there are many in society that feel this way. They feel as if they will be judged for how they act, dress, look, talk, and so on and that keeps them from Christ. Please know that as Christians we fail to live up to the standard set forth by our savior. Though at times we fail to be as loving as He is, to be as accepting and non-judgmental, He will never fail to love you just as you are. It is the standard we are trying to achieve at Christ's Church. It is not our intention to put up barriers on yourr way to Christ, we sometimes just don't get it right.
