Dei-Me

Man and woman.

He created us in

Perfection.

The design He had in mind:

The Human race.

We exist for the glory and edification of our Maker.

God create my biology to demand a counterpart,

an opposite equal,

that both satisfies and multiplies

Me.


Unfortunately, the reality of sin has perverted the design

to include deviations that prefer to consume me.

In a culture that cultures my appetite to indulge in

Me


To do

Me

To be

Me

And put

Me

First


It appears that even sects of this

Christian faith

will perpetuate a

hedonistic approach to salvation.

One cultivated to mollify

oppose to crucify

Me.


It's a feel good faith

that alleviates the pressure

to submit to a Master who knows

Me

and would hold

Me

to a higher standard.


A Savior who knows that

My

heart is deceitful above all things

and out of it are the issues of life.


I'd

curated a Christianity that

I

was comfortable with like many before

Me.

I

discovered it easier to manipulate the scriptures so that

I

colored complacency profound.

This "new faith" only challenged

what secular society has cautiously ordained grey,

giving me

agency to modify the expectations of my Creator.


So though no one likes a liar,

There are some lies that can be excused.

It's a badge of honor to make a nun blush,

but her standards are something to be admired,

not replicated.


I

sorted through God's mandates

and chose only to adopt those principles

that were perceived as honorable to men.

To be only more forgiving,

more kind,

and more generous than my contemporaries

allowed Me

to place

Myself

closer to a Heaven

I forfeited

the moment I deemed my own altar

sufficient to worship at.


I failed to understand that,

any faith not based in the reconciliation of my soul to Christ

is pagan.

Idolatry

No matter how well I can quote scriptures.


This newfound belief in

Me,

meant that my god

(small "g")

was I

My feelings

My body

My biology betrayed by the sin in

Me.

A deity:

Dei-Me


So I repent.

For do I now persuade (me)n, or God?

or do I seek to please (me)n?

for if I yet pleased (me)n

I should not be the servant of Christ.


And

No man can serve two masters

for either he will hate the one,

and love the other;

or else he will hold to the one

and despise the other


So I

lay me down

before the cross,

to serve my Creator.

I lay me down and surrender to my Maker.

Choosing to let Christ reign in me.

Because

Greater is He that is in me

Than he

that is in the world.
