HAPPY SABBATH: OXYMORON - Closet Christian Closet Christianity?!?!









I Don't Know About You
BUT
I Have Never Been 

A Closet Christian!

I Don't Care Who Is Looking At Me "Funny" 
When I Say Prayers In Public Before I Eat!

I Don't Care Who Knows That I Say Prayers 
To The Almighty God
- In Jesus Christ's Name -
To Watch Over Me When I Sleep!

I Don't Care Who Thinks It Is Weird For Me To Say:

"Thank God for Grace and Glory!"

AND ...

I Don't Care Who Thinks I'm Strange 
For Not Believing That God Is A Made-up Story!

I Believe In:
Almighty God - The Father
Jesus Christ, Creator, Redeemer, Savior, Friend: God - The Son
AND
The Comforter: God - The Holy Spirit,  Too!

I Believe That Holy Angels Do Surround 
AND
Protect True Believers from The Devil And His Evil Crew!

I Believe That It Is A Fool Who Plays With The Devil
Dipping And Touching Hands in 
The Devil's Pot of Deceitful Stew
AND
I Decided That Heaven Is My Goal
AND
I Know That I Will Survive And Thrive 
By God's Grace 
AND
I Know - For Sure - 
That I Can Do Without Satan's Fool's Gold!

I Shall Continue To Testify About 
What Good God Has Done For Me!

I Will Tell It To The World
That Being A Christian Does Not Mean That I Can't Laugh 
AND
Be Happy
AND
That Laughter Is Not Akin To Having Killed The Fatted Calf!

I Will Tell The World That 
In Jesus Christ 
My Failures Are Not Fatal
AND
My Mistakes Are Not Considered 
An Infestation of Rabid Lice
So That I Must Be Put Down!

I Can - And Do - Tell My Jesus Anything And Everything
AND
I Know That He Will Direct Me 
AND
Mark The Straight And Narrow Path That 
I Must Walk Along!

And ...

I Don't Have To Worry And Fret
AND
Threaten To Commit Suicide ... "Just Because ...!"
A Friend Is Doing Better Than I Am

WHEN ...

In Jesus Christ's Blessed And Holy Name 
The Almighty God Provides For Me!


NO! NO! NO!

No Closet Christianity For Me!
I Am Out 
In The Open 
For All The World To See
That Jesus Christ 
IS
The Lover Of My Soul
AND
Come Hell Or High-water
Jesus Christ Is Carrying This Soul 
AND
His Eternal City Is Mine
AND
I Shall Live Forever - After Having Endured To The End -
At The Fullness Of Time
FOR
The King Of Love Is My Shepherd
AND
His Love For Me Is Divine 
AND
Not Love On The Line!




Confessing To Being 
A Faithful Christian 

IN TIMES LIKE THESE

Puts A Bulls-Eye On Our Bodies!

*******

We Don't Need To Worry!

Let Us Remain Faithful!

*******


Man Can Kill The Body

BUT

Almighty God
Has Got Our Souls

AND

We Will Live ... Again

Immortal AND Glorified!!
