You Think I Am Brainwashed? - Poem

Updated on August 20, 2012

You say I am brainwashed because

I follow Jesus.

I believe Him to be the Savior.

I can only say, yes, I am brainwashed.

I am body washed,

Soul washed, and

Heart washed, too.

From the top of my head to

The soles of my feet

I am washed in the

Precious covering

Crimson blood of The Great I Am,

Of The Spotless Lamb.

He was the sacrifice

For my sin.

I should have borne the penalty because

I was born the offspring of evildoers.

His blood made me clean,

Pure and forgiven

Before the Throne of my Father.

His forgiving blood

Flows from the Cross

Where He died

For all to come and

Be completely satisfied.



Nothing But the Blood of Jesus

      Oh my goodness, the video gave me a start! I didn't expect the scenes from The Passion movie, very profound statement! What a beautiful poem and song. Thanks for sharing this truth of Jesus here.

      Faith, I am so glad you appreciated this. Being brainwashed is the best thing that has happened in my life. We should be proud to annouce to the world who our Daddy is. God bless you.

      Molly, I'll agree. I am a loser in Christ. I wouldn't want to be anything else. It is such a joy to know we have been raised from the dead with Jesus. Thanks for the encouraging comment. Bless you.

      Dear me, what an unpleasant criticism! I'm glad you didn't let it discourage you. Ted Turner once famously said that Christianity was for uneducated "losers." The Atlanta Journal-Constitution was immediately inundated by replies from Christian doctors, lawyers, business professionals and scientists; but the letter they chose as representative was one that said, in effect, "Yes, I'm a loser! I've lost my past, my guilt, my sins and my old self. I'm a new person in Christ."

      Be who you are, sister.

      I am washed in the blood of our Lord and cleansed of my sins. His act of unselfishness is the greatest example of all time and a precious evidence of a God that cares about humanity. If only those who can't bring themselves to commit to a belief would see the truth, then their's would be the true story of the blind that are healed and to see again. Miracles do happen!!!Such a wonderful work in this hub.

      Amen! God is so Good to have given His Son for us. I am brainwashed too! He has risen indeed!! Good video of singers and clips from The Passion of Christ Movie. And I love the photo of the drop of blood. :)
