God's Word Is Absent in Many Church
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

 God’s Word Is Absent In Many Churches!


As I travel around, I can’t believe what I’m seeing!

God’s word, in many people, seems to be disappearing!


Many in church tell others what they want to here.

They don’t want to preach the truth…

 Just tickle their ear!


Many in church seem to be quite “afraid…”

Of the thought of their Bible being “displayed.”


Many hide it under their coat except on Sunday…

It’s difficult finding their Bible come Monday!


Many want to believe what’s loving and convenient.

Any mention of God’s holiness?  It appears to be absent!


Any talk of what scripture speaks as morality.

Is often absent, as many pursue what is vanity.


Soon, the truth of God’s word is twisted into a lie…

As many people look to what soothes the eye!


Indulging themselves in lust, they’re not ashamed.

Any problems they have….  They give God the “blame.”


There’s going to come a time.  A time very soon…

Where the Holy Spirit will clean up every room!


Here’s a truth every man and woman need to understand…

“Christ is coming for a bride washed in the blood of the lamb!”


Have your sins been washed away?

Are they as white as snow?

Only the truth and blood of Jesus can

totally make you whole!


Won’t you allow God’s truth to convict your heart within?

And find out what it truly means to be BORN AGAIN!


Please don’t allow God’s truth to disappear today!

Allow it to transform your life in a Godly kind of way!


Jesus will never disappoint you

and offers his atonement!

His love can totally change your

life this very moment!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
