Denominations



 



We see church numbers slip and slide



As chapels close their gate



While through denominational pride



We choose to segregate



 



Yet God’s resolved to make us one



Devoid of sin and shame



Uniting in His Lamb, His Son



In Jesus’ holy name



 



We say the other church is wrong



Our doctrine’s rich and fair



But is it not the devil’s song?



When love we fail to share



 



The church, to free herself of rot



Must stop her selfish fight



Must be aware of Satan’s plot



Must now in Christ unite



 



We need to think before we speak



Question what leaders tell



Not make the bride feel sick and weak



Decreeing tales from hell



 



Christ’s church today should understand



Such things to lay aside



That each within The Lord God’s hand



Is chosen as His bride



 



We need to love with all our heart



Until the church is whole



Not with one’s mouth tear Christ apart



Condemning thus our soul



 



When one; combined in Heaven’s sight



When hand in hand we sing



We’ll walk and live in brilliant Light



Beneath our Saviour’s wing.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
