The Difference Is the t

As a Christian, Jesus is a very real presence in my life and writing. Spirituality isn’t the only subject I write about, but it is the backdrop for everything I think or pen.

Christians believe every person born has good and evil hopelessly combined within. It is like a cup of water that someone has spit in. The whole cup isn’t spit but the whole cup is ruined for drinking. At best, every action I take is mixed. Even the most glowing actions cast a shadow of evil. In Christianity, it is impossible to be moral based on what I do; morality is only gained by believing in Jesus’s execution on the cross.

To explain why faith in Jesus makes a person moral would take waaay too long and be too technical for this blog. My other blog, thevoiceofone.org, delves into my spiritual beliefs. But below is a poem I wrote years ago to encapsulate the Christian view of morality.
