The Title

I close my eyes and walk beyond the lost soul in need.
I have too much on my schedule, I'm much too busy.
I shrug my shoulders when I'm asked what God has done for me.
I will not push my faith upon the others that I meet.
I disregard the statutes that I read in God's Word.
He can not expect me to obey them all, how absurd.
Why should I spend time in His Word anyway,
Can it be relevant to this day and age?
I don't believe it to be literal just a a metaphor.
That's my faith's foundation, nothing more.
Though I do not seek the helpless and the lost,
I am a Christian.
Though I do not serve no matter the cost,
I am a Christian.
Though I'm content to live in unrepentant sin,
I am a Christian.
Though I do not have a relationship with Him.
I am a Christian.
I claim the title, but disregard the Christ.
I claim the title, but don't live the life.
I am a Christian, or am I?

"Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity" - Matthew 7:23
