Christian Poems –
Spiritual Poems using Bible Language or Symbols

Religious Poems - Christian Poems

Many poems by visitors on other pages of this website can also be called Christian poems since they are written by Christians on their spiritual journey.

This page however favours poetry which uses Bible language or refers to Christian stories from the Bible or to doctrines that I consider to be specifically Christian.

Much of the Bible is itself poetry, including the beautiful "The Lord is my Shepherd" so it is not surprising that so many of us Christians find our praise, worship and gratitude for God pouring out as words onto the page.

A word about my preference

St Paul says: "Without the resurrection the cross is nothing" and I agree.

I personally relate less to poems which speak of salvation only through the crucifixion and I am less likely to publish such poems.

I left the church for many years because I felt guilty that Jesus died for me. He was my friend and he died. Clearly I misunderstood. But I think this teaching is easily misunderstood when received in childhood.

The teaching of salvation only through the cross is a common Christian teaching which works to bring many people closer to God.
Many Christian websites will be happy to publish such work.

Also, through Christianity, I find a God of Love not punishment. There are poems that I have chosen not to publish because they speak of sin and punishment in a way which does not speak of the God I know.

If you are submitting a poem and wish to know if I am likely to publish it, please read more of this website to know more about my spiritual beliefs and spiritual practice.

Please do not take it as a reflection on your words if I do not publish your poem. They are your words and they are truly precious in their acknowledgement of your journey to let God love you.

Room for differences

Although I see myself as a Christian, the Chrisitian poems published here are NOT necessarily in line with my own beliefs. 

Sometimes, I have been touched by the poet's spiritual journey with Christianity. 

Other poems have provoked thought in me, and through expressing their different beliefs have clarified my own. They have served me and I thank the poet.
