Many Churches Have Compromised the

Many Churches Have Compromised The Gospel Of Jesus Christ!


There’s many churches all across this nation.

That have “dug in” to a compromising situation.


Prayer time is often traded for a “social event.”

A lot of their time for big parties is being spent.


Any kind of preaching on holiness is in the past.

Many want a very quick sermon, and want it FAST!


A message of love and acceptance seems to catch on.

“How dare we tell people how their living is wrong.”


“Just come as you are!”  And you’ll leave just the same!

As so many are being pulled down by sins’ heavy chains!


The presence and power of God?  It doesn’t seem to matter.

As many sit in the chairs, filled with gossip and chatter.


Perhaps the words; “Ichabod the glory has long departed.”

Should be written on the doors, before the service is started!


If you want “preachers with itching years.”  You can find them!

If you want the truth and power of God…  Perhaps remind them!


God’s not looking for fancy buildings or big denominations.

He’s sick and tired of the evil and wicked abominations!


Jesus is coming for a church washed in the blood of the lamb!

His message of truth and holiness…   Do we understand???


Please come dear Lord, and purify us with your holy fire!

That daily honoring and serving you will be our desire!


Let’s not compromise the truth that God has given!

And experience the joy of being set free and forgiven!


It’s the builder, not the building that needs our attention!

And allow Jesus Christ to bring us in HIS holy direction!

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!
