Theoretical Lies

Theoretical Lies


Lest salvation be plagued with doubt

Confusion troubles man

Lest empty be the cross of clout

Obstructing Heaven’s plan


Lest ‘You did that’ and ‘I did this’

Becoming standard code

Lest we Jesus as God dismiss

And leave The Narrow Road


Much foolishness is taught today

Blasphemy’s common place

So many hearing, fall away

To wander in disgrace


In sin to live in shame to die

Whilst help is plain to see

Whilst Heaven’s Truth to all is nigh

To set the captive free


But some; may cloud an infant’s eyes

When self has raised its head

Spreading rumour, theory and lies

In place of Heaven’s Bread


For who is self to brag and boast?

What power dwells within?

Without The Promised Holy Ghost

No crown we’d ever win


We need to change these strange ideas

Renounce the thoughts of fools

Return to God with godly fears

To be His living tools


It’s Christ who died its Christ who lives!

It’s Christ who heals and saves

It’s Christ alone one’s soul forgives

It’s Christ who’ll empty graves.......

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.
