Easy Faith

An easy faith

That requires nothing of me

I come to God as I see fit

On my own terms

Church attendance is not required

No time in my busy schedule

Prayers are uttered

But only in times of crisis

No need to study God’s word

No desire to know truth revealed in Scripture

My faith is more about how I feel

An experience that makes me feel good

No need to share the gospel

Don’t all paths lead to God

My thoughts are not taken captive

There’s not much difference between me and the world

My son whom I love so much

Surely he is good enough

No need to train him up

In the way he shall go

No time to take him to church

When our days are filled with baseball, basketball, football and tennis

God’s warning may go unheeded

By ears who do not hear

Rather than being welcomed home

“Come, enter into the joy of your Master”

There will be a loud and resounding proclamation

“Away from Me, I never knew you”
