You're Not A Christian

(This poem takes place in the year 1800)

 

You call yourself a Christian who has been saved.

But you're not a Christian because you have slaves.

Instead of freeing your slaves, slavery is something you choose to prolong.

If you were a Christian, you'd free them because Jesus said slavery is wrong.

When you pretend to be a Christian, it definitely makes God mad.

Because you can't see that you're a horrible person, it is very sad.

God and Jesus realize that slaves are precious human beings who should be free.

You're not a true Christian because If you were, you'd free your slaves immediately.

Owning fifty slaves makes you money and their hardship makes your purse swell.

I wouldn't want to be you because when you die, you might just go to Hell.
