Christ's Disunited Church

Christ's Disunited Church

 

There’s nothing worse this side of hell

Than hatred of another

So Jesus came and died to tell

Man; should love his brother

 

Once lost in sin and doomed to die

I answered God’s command

“O Lord my God I can but try

To make them understand”

 

It seems that all are teachers Lord

That everybody knows

Though churches clash with tongue and sword

And disobedience flows

 

One church says this, another that

They all say truth is there

Though all have ‘WELCOME’ on the mat

There’s not a lot who care

 

Selfishness is common place

Often from head to tail

Both day and night fall souls from grace

In epidemic scale

 

Factions are forming everywhere

Denominational clans

Not few seek for the highest chair

Whilst forming selfish plans

 

How can your church divided learn?

How can she serve Your Son?

As Groom; You said You’ll not return

Until the bride is one

   

Have mercy Lord consume the sin

Revive true love of yore

Rekindle embers found within

Unite us as before.....

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.
