Religion or Christianity.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


Is religion, Christianity?

Is God Author of both?

Will each improve humanity?

Truly bring forth one’s growth?

 

Sounding as if, man can’t go wrong

Regardless which we choose

Which in truth, is best to belong?

Which is the worst to loose

 

Throughout the world, religion rules

Christian churches decrease

Sitting awkward, between two stools

Where does one find true peace?

 

Each other sounds complicated

Religion can be strange

Church goers oft seem inflated

Christians, delight in change

 

In which of these can truth be heard?

Revealing Heaven! As fact

Leaders,explaining God’s very Word

Informing, how man should act

 

In which of these can truth be heard?

Revealing Heaven! As fact

Leaders,explaining God’s very Word

Informing, how saints should act

 

How should a Pastor, toe The Line?

Vicars teaching to pews

What of religion is Divine?

What are their selfless views?

 

What should a soul do, unknowing?

While each cry out they’re true

Pray God where Life’s Wind is blowing

Allow Him! To guide you….

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.
