why yes, yes it is.
Im sitting here listening to my music.
Everyone has gone to bed,
and im sitting thinking to myself,
why do we feel the need for privacy?
its selfish for sure, a given.
And i mean, maybe theres even some upsides to it..
for social reasons…maybe people get sick of me.
But, i mean…im an open book.
You can read me up and down,
and talk me left and right,
and ill sit and listen to you all day,
and all frickin night.
But, maybe i just need some alone time.
Maybe i could benefit from sitting in my room,
staring at the wall wondering when i can stand people again.
its never gunna happen like we think it will.
ha, if there is one thing ive learned,
its that people are people, no matter where you go,
they dont change.
Im not gunna force u to be away from me,
but if you need me to back off,
if im to close. You just let me know.
im yours for the long run, and gosh u know it.
Maybe this doesnt make any sense at all,
maybe its more a late night compliation of random thoughts,
more so that a profound glimpse into my heart.
Look all you want, im an open book.
People hate the church.
Certainly not everyone, but the fact remains.
People DO hate the church.
There are just so many problems in the church.
I know, right!?
Why can’t the church just learn to love?
Hypocrites! Hypocrites! Judgmental Hypocrites!
“The church is a whore, but she is my mother”
Ill admit, I have been a member in that group of people
to condemn the church. To diss the church.
To hate the church.
To call the church out because
of all its shortcomings.
And I can only sigh as the church has gone
from fighting hunger to fighting gay marriage
But every time I see a hurting person, I know that it
is not the church that has failed to love.
It is me. I have failed to love, as I should.
If asked what the church should be,
I would refer to the book of Ephesians.
Godly people. Godly Faith.
For any and everyone that’s ever in any way
been burned by the church.
Burned physically and emotionally.
To anyone called a bad Christian for
listening to secular music or for being a democrat.
who’s repeatedly had Christ shoved down their throat.
I am sorry for the pain we have caused you.
Its not you, Its me.
And believe me, Im in perfect Unison with your thoughts
that the church needs change.
I love the church. She raised me up into the man I am now.
The first step to fixing a problem such as the one
in the modern day church, is admitting your wrong.
God help this broken system.
This is the song “Edelweiss” from “the sound of music”.
