Pseudo Christians
Poetry by Lance Landall

Some say that they're Christians, when in fact, that is hardly so; They may be Christian in name, but truly a Christian? No. Within the Christianís Bible, it says how true Christians act, And going by that Bible, the following is a fact:

Genuine Christian people donít hide behind politics, Nor indulge in game-playing, or any underhand tricks. Genuine Christian people donít willfully break the law, They hate bigotry and prejudice, and gossip ignore.

Genuine Christian people do not hide behind the Church, Donít misuse position or power, nor reputations besmirch. Genuine Christian people donít act promiscurously, Firmly stand on principle, always act transparently.

Genuine Christian people donít rape, maim, pillage or kill, Nor indulge in backroom deals, or what fuels a rumor mill. Genuine Christian people donít fiddle the books, or steal, Nor indulge in lying or cheating; shared secrets donít reveal.

Genuine Christian people keep to promises theyíve made, They practice what they preach, arenít vain, and wealth donít parade. Genuine Christian people always call a spade a spade, Never force anotherís will, investigation donít evade.

Genuine Christian people do not violate human rights, They don't seek attention or the limelight, and they arenít skites. Genuine Christian people defend freedom of expression, Uphold civil-religious liberty, condemn oppression.

Genuine Christian people do not curse, blaspheme or swear, They always act impartially, not cruelly or unfair. Genuine Christian people -- if blessed with wealth -- such will share, Uphold biblical standards, shun the extra-marital affair.

Genuine Christian people do not verbally abuse, They donít try to control, manipulate; nor others wrongly use. Genuine Christian people donít abuse our fragile earth, Nor tell jokes that show bad taste, or indulge in bawdy mirth.

Genuine Christian people hold no grudges; reconcile, forgive, They display compassion, mercy, uphold justice, moral lives live. Genuine Christian people show unconditional love, Honour and guard the Bible entrusted to them by God above.

Only those who act like Christ have the right to claim His name, Not those whoíre acting contrary, for such Christians bring God shame. Either they are genuine, or genuine they are not, And those who aren't genuine, folk can very quickly spot.

Christianityís a package, not a case of take your pick, Nor is it some Pick Ďní Mix, make believe, just rhetoric. Itís something that must be lived -- otherwise, itíll be a sham, And thatís just hypocrisy, which both God and Scripture slam.

Yes, Christians do make mistakes, for weíre all human, you see, But mistakes arenít the same as acting wrong willfully. However, genuine Christians try to avoid mistakes, Knowing itís their behaviour that their witness makes or breaks.
