Religions Facade.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

† † Religions Facade.....

Great powers received unto man

True knowledge some have gained

Come with lifeís eternal plan

With responsibility chained

Accountable; is man and child

None innocent is living

We canít persist in running wild

Thinking Godís forgiving

Technology can see no bounds

Science resists defeat

As nations seek immoral grounds

Bombing each foe they greet

Throughout the globe the same old song

Each nation sings with pride

Our way is right and theirs is wrong

And God is on our side

The tests of life for all are hard

Both here and every land

Religions with their grand facade

Canít force The Masterís hand

God has no thirst for human blood

Christ died to pay our bail

To walk through life The Way we should

To live no more to fail

However much some think it odd

This world can still unite

Thereís but one way that leads to God

The Way of Truth and Light

There is a God on Heavenís throne!

Godís Lamb, Godís risen Son

Willing to melt manís heart of stone

That victory may be won.....†

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.
