I'm Not Tired of Jesus

I'm not tired of Jesus.
A few weeks ago,
I thought maybe I was,
maybe I was having
a crisis of faith,
but I'm not.

I'm not tired of Jesus;
I'm tired of people,
the people who speak in
Christianese,
who repeat the same ideas
in new words
every little bit
of the time.

I'm worn-down-wearied-out
of love the sinner hate the sin
with no real evidence
of any love in
the first place.
I am finished
with the culture that has
sprouted from what was meant to be
simple.

Love God.
Love Neighbor.

Quit talking.
All of you, please,
quit talking.
Start loving.

Love.
Love.
Love.
Love.

That's the only poem
you need from me.
