Secular Truth
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

            Secular Truth

The world we share bears so much shame

Decay plagues every land

Her brood deny The Saviour’s name

Through whom we live and stand


World truth may wear many a guise

Conceal a heart of stone

Deceive herself thinking she’s wise

Upon her selfish throne


Thinking to have life’s battle won

Thinking she knew it all

Blundering round without God’s Son

Until her destined fall


While pride dictates she’s never wrong

Being by Satan fed

Choosing to dance to sing his song

And lie within his bed


Adulterous, is the world at large

Willing to err and stray

But who’ll defend against the charge?

Her Judge will make one day


From Truth unknown she seeks to flee

She’s heard of God on high

But fails through pride to bend her knee

So as a fool, she’ll die –Hos.4:6


Through land and space she searches wide

Beneath the ocean floor

With Satan as her faithful guide

She’ll fail to find Life’s Door


The world’s defence will be in vain

With sin as daily bread

She needs to turn, be born-again

And serve The Lord instead.....

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.
