Anything Goes


Are Christian churches standing true?

Is Christ our ruling King?

Is God content in what we do?

And that to Him we bring


We’re compromising everywhere

We’re losing fought for ground

We need to seek our God in prayer

Until the facts are found


Many may say they’ve heard from Him

God’s Way has been revealed

Then turn like sheep with eyes still dim

To graze a neighbour’s field


In church we’ll praise we’ll dance and sing

We’ll walk and talk as blessed

Yet tolerate the vilest thing apostate

And say it’s for the best


Appalling things are welcomed now

Bending religious knees

At Jesus’ name their heads may bow

Whilst doing as they please


The world stares in sheer disgust

Neighbours jeer and mock

When priests today so plagued with lust

May teach The Master’s flock


Whom do we serve in faith and trust?

Where do our values stand?

Treading God’s precepts in the dust

Shaking each other’s hand


God’s holy Word is plain to see

Testaments old and new

Complete as one we must agree

And in obedience do!!!!!.....

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.
