If Christ Were To Step Down From His Cross

by tjtherien

If Christ were to step down from his cross
And walk the Earth among men today
Would lord and saviour be at a loss?
What would he do and what would he say?

Now I am not a religious man
But believe if Christ were to return
He would not travel in caravan
Nothing to distinguish or discern

No gifts of gold, myrrh or frankincense
And no cherubs singing in concert
He would be collecting evidence
Not be trying to preach and convert

Watching, He would silently observe
And mingling with us unbeknown
The subpoena for our soul be served
Every man called to stand alone

In His esteem the verdict will rest
A manโ€™s heart will be weighed on a scale
And will we, his children pass the test
Or go to Hell when we surely fail

Each called to deliver testament
To defend the lives we chose to live
After individual judgement
Called to account as a collective

Each atrocity under the sun
Falsehoods will not crucial truth eclipse
Days of trying to persuade are done
Revelations and apocalypse

Proofs of our crimes, our sins, our abuse
Found in the carnage and the chaos
Our blind ignorance is no excuse
The day that Christ steps down from his cross

  1. I find this a powerful, stirring poem, well written, and I like being with that questions too. I don’t believe in a hell or in a final judgement but that doesn’t prevent me from appreciating this.

    • Thank you very much…the only thing I really believe is there are forces in this universe greater than I…what comes of us after death I haven’t a clue…as for final judgement…I don’t know about this either, just that the evidence against us doesn’t look good if there is such a thing…

  2. Powerful!

  3. This is definitely powerful.

    I think we sometimes create our own hell.

    I think I commented on this your blog. Correct me if Im wrong, but it sounds familiar. If I didn’t comment I meant to!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • thank you…nope not a single comment on it on my blog…and you are right we do very much create our own hell here on earth…but we can also create heaven here on earth too…we have the power to do both…

  4. I must have read it and then got distracted, so sorry about that. And yes I agree, we can create heaven too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Everyone can make their own heaven or hell.

    : ) smiley ( no space ) ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. thanks Harry think I got it ๐Ÿ˜‰
