I think there are a lot people out there who relate to these lyrics by Over the Rhine. I’ve tried to be a “good Christian” for much of my life and the trying wore me out. Hey – I’m not advocating rough living here. I just wish Christians had loved me more when I was trying to figure life out and I think we should do the same. What about you, do you ever feel like a failed Christian?
Over the RhineIt never got to me
Your sermon and all
You talked and you talked
About nothing at all

I’m a Failed Christian
Failed Christian, yeah

I’ve got two recollections
Taking the collections
And tears when the choir sang in harmony
It scared me half to death
I swore as I left
With a inside pocket full of change and memories

All over the world
The bloods on their hands
Religious instruction
I can’t understand

I’m going to meet my maker
A firm believer
Of spirit in music
There’s a prayer in a song

I’m a Failed Christian
And if I’m go under
And you’re coming with me
That much I can’t tell
