      Christ Crippled
Shirley Malmgren

Christ crippled,
crucified again,
not on a cross
but on the altar
of our pride.

Yes, Christians,
those for whom He died,
deform His Body
day and night,
worshipping at the temple
of religion,
dividing His Body
by tradition, cutting off
hands and feet,
destroying, killing
by the sword
of man's opinion.

What shall we say
to Father God
if by our stubborn will
we hurt and maim
His own dear children
so Christ walks
crippled still...


Shirley Malmgren is a Christian mother of five and grandmother of eight. She home-schooled two of her children through Christian Liberty Academy in Arlington Heights, Illinois. Over the years, Shirley has developed a large collection of her own poetry. Besides the poem above, three other poems of Shirley's are published here as well:

Denominations
Divisions
The Body of Christ
