Church Rogues & Fools......
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Some churches harbour rogues & fools

Though Heaven’s word is plain

They break barefaced The Father’s rules

For lust of selfish gain


The blind are leading blind to hell

Not knowing where they go

Young lambs consume what shepherds tell

Following to and fro


Money is what they preach about

If preaching is its name

Have they no fear no faith or doubt?

God’s work is not a game


From Heaven’s Truth no lie can hide

God’s no-one’s fool or berk

His perfect eyes still open wide

Can see these rogues at work


Mega churches wax high and fast

With seldom thought of sin

But all who come to have a blast

They need but walk on in


Though countless souls are dying still

Seeking Salvation Way

Believing pastors do God’s will?

Young sheep do as they say


Music and singing fill the halls

Where servants sought The King

What happens though when Jesus calls?

What fruit will these then bring?


Many are teaching Darwin trash

Living as Satan’s whore

But soon they’ll scream, their teeth will gnash

Cursing forever more.....

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.
