Does God Offend You?

Does God Offend You?


 


It seems like there’s many people becoming “defensive.”


As anything of God, is seemingly being “offensive.”


 


People can peddle their smut and filth around.


But a cross or nativity?  They must come down!


 


People can watch acts of fornication on their t.v.


But, talking about God?  “Why that’s offensive to me!”


 


People often talk about their constitutional “rights.”


Perhaps someone upstairs “turned out the lights!”


 


Its amazing how money is spent getting God “removed.”


What is it exactly that people are trying to prove?


 


What’s next?  Taking “in God we trust,” off our money?


It could happen very soon!  I’m not trying to be funny!


 


Think about what’s happening and taking place!


We’re told that we can’t pray in public?  Or say grace?


 


This whole country is being turned “upside down.”


Our very foundations are being “tossed around!”


 


In what’s being pursued as “political correctness…”


Has left in many lives…  A total weakness!


 


God is being replaced with what’s “socially appealing.”


Much of what’s in our society has no real meaning!


 


A person can marry anyone they want, or smoke pot..


But the truth of God’s word, can’t be taught?


 


It’s time that we come to God, and totally repent!


Before another wasted day we have spent!


 


Sooner or later, God’s judgment will come out!


Our lives need to be changed, and cleansed throughout!


 


Jesus is the answer!  Our only hope of salvation!


We need him now!  All across this great nation!

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!
