Choose to Follow Christ

Posted by

For this week’s theology post I thought I’d do something a little different. The focus of my theology, as many of you are aware, is the sovereignty and omnipresence of God and what that means in terms of freedom of the human will. I have posted about this subject a lot in recent months, so I hope that most of you have a good idea of where I stand. If not, I have written the poem below, which expresses my feelings in a concise way.

Choose to Follow Christ

“Choose to follow Christ”
Demands the Holy Book,
But God it is whose will
Dictates the way I look.

“Choose to follow Christ”
Insists my Christian friend,
But God it is whose will
Dictates the time I spend.

“Choose to follow Christ”
Insists my Christian brother,
But God will have His way,
And I can do no other.

“Choose to follow Christ”
Demands the Christian voice,
But all I do is by God’s will;
And so I have no choice!

For a more in-depth look at the theme expressed in this poem, you might like to check out my essay entitled ‘An Almighty Predicament: A Discourse on the Arguments For and Against Christianity’ which can be found here.Β Thank you for reading!
