Is Christianity Religion.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

Is Christianity Religion?

Just as most people say

Or a rational decision

To walk Salvation Way


One needs to think, rational seek

If God’s actual fact

Able to feel, smell, hear speak

Essentially react?


God in Heaven’s absolute true

Creation thus displays

Plainly existing all in view

Finished in seven days


Religions are repetitive

Acts, day in and day out

Chanting, racial competitive

Life’s starvation and drought


Chants are the same, heads to and fro

Banging drums, blowing flutes

Uniforms, gowns, where chanting they go

Nowhere revealing life’s fruits


Believe or not accept, refuse

Salvation! Has a voice

Where Christ’s faithful win, doubters       lose

Everyone has a choice


Even walking dead! find each day

Religion’s not in God’s view

From youth until old grey

With fools have nothing to do


Mankind at large are roaming wild

Most of the world’s astray

Without through Jesus reconciled

              Souls will be lost each day…..

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.
