Religion Will Disappoint You!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Religion Will Disappoint You!  Jesus Won’t!


Are been frustrated with

so much religion?

By the "superficial" hope

and man-focused attention?


Have you been scorned by

 a fellow church member?

The faults you have... 

They do remember.


Some in church who pray

and worship on Sunday.

Are often a different person

come Monday.


Some who claim to be

"righteous and holy."

Are simply full of

"hot air and baloney."


Look to Jesus!  Look beyond

 the "church crowd."

Read his holy word...

And shout it out loud!


A relationship with Jesus is the

most important thing.

Into your life...  Abundant living,

he will bring.


The religious distractions will simply go.

Once Christ has control over

your thoughts and soul.


Religion is empty and will

always fail you!

Jesus is faithful and

wants to help you!


Won’t you try Jesus?

He won’t let you down!

Where there’s religion…

His love much more abounds!

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!
