We Are Trading God's Laws for Our
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by James Pemberton

We Are Trading God’s Holy Laws With Our Own!


Too often, our country embraces

 an ungodly cause.

And end up passing a “new” set of laws.


As God’s holy truth is being abandoned.

We come up with another law, at random!


What once were our laws for many years.

Are being removed… With little tears.


As more people “indulge” in ungodly things.

The wrath of God, is what this brings!


What’s pure and holy, seems not to be relevant.

More ungodly sets of laws are clearly evident!


The past foundations are now being destroyed.

So this new “freedom” can be “enjoyed.”


This country is being destroyed from within.

By the new “tolerance” of so much sin!


We can try to pretend that we’re “wise.”

But in the end, we’ll find it’s all LIES!


As the relevance of God, seems to disappear.

His judgment draws ever so near!


I’m going to live for God,

 in the “old fashioned” way!

And will live by what his

 words have to say!


God was here! Before any of us existed!

Let’s not get his truth 

“confused” or “twisted!”

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!
