You Can’t Keep Me Out

Written by , Posted in faith, life, poetry

Christianity in general (and Evangelicalism in particular) has a great many vocal, self-proclaimed gatekeepers. They employ a range of scare tactics and subtleties, but the message is the same: “We” are in; “you” are out.

This has long been the way of the Christian; it has never been the way of the Christ.

Join me today at A Deeper Story for my short piece of spoken word poetry, You Can’t Keep Me Out.

    Hi Tamara

    Like the picture above , reminds me more of England, than Florida though. I’m glad you are still around, thought you’d voluntarily gone to Coventry. I liked the poem & presentation, cleverly done and constructed.

      Thanks, Hannah! Haven’t been hiding, just busy!

        Great Tamara! In my household, we’re all missing your posting (3 Jews, 1 atheist,1 agnostic) . I’m not of your faith, although I did explore it in great detail; got a piano recently so been playing Psalm 121 a lot. I find your honesty and frankness refreshing, you’re more like Jesus than a lot of the others who claim your faith (I don’t have a problem with ‘frog’ – U see I did watch the other videos!). Thanks and keep posting when you can.

          Aw, thank you! I appreciate you and your sweet family so much! And you know, I think we share a lot of faith. 🙂

            Hi Tamara,

            I agree and that is cool! (:

    A viable alternative is not to want to go in, which is my case.

    Hi Tamara,
    I can really relate to your beautiful poem. I have felt the same way about many “Christians”. My search has been the catalyst for the book I wrote.

    A huge victory for believers:
    EVOLUTION DOES NOT EXIST!!!
    Scientific proof of this fact begins on page 144 of my book.
    Simple, Understandable diagrams.
    (If you understood your 3rd grade reader, then you’ll understand this.)
    Our relationship to the chimp lies not in our DNA, but in a common Creator God.
