Am I a Christian . . . .What do I think?
Or is that the problem…. I think.
The ancient world defined
“nous” as the finest part of the soul
Both purely sensory and purely spiritual
As Christ was.
Every day I read the Word
And the words about the Word
I ponder, ruminate, whir and whir
About what it means to be a
About the fact and the fiction
The best and the worst
Within me and about me.
Or am I merely a theologian
Studying, staying in the safety
Of my mind.
Are my deeds good enough
To get into heaven
How much bad can I do
After I’ve been “saved”
And still get to see the Almighty Trinity?
Because, no matter what,
I do believe that purity and goodness
Are life long, daily, acts and beliefs.
If I question or doubt – do I get there?
Who really knows?
The One is not here to tell me.
Nor do I believe if I get to heaven
I will be divine – as some hymns allude.
Only the Trinity is divine.
So please tell me Lord
What it is that pleases you
And how best can I serve?
Because I want to be Christian
And not simply a Theologian.
