Many Believe.....

“Many believe they’re Heaven Bound

They’re not as bad as others

No faith no trust in Christ is found

Like His faithful brothers


Born and raised in Christian land

As their parents were before

Immediately they understand

They’re Christian by the law


They’ve never read the bible though

To church, they’ve never gone

They’ve never even said hello

To God or Christ His Son


To them! Christian’s a country thing

Christian when one is born

One day to rise on angel’s wing

When Gabriel blows his horn


No need to go to church at all

It’s been so long passé

One close by is a Bingo Hall

Where folk play night and day


Heaven is one day where they’ll be

Others may go to hell

But if God’s lives His face they’ll see

And everything is well”


“You say these dreadful things to me

Perhaps your words are true

But how can one from sin be free?

And live the same as you?


You start I need to read God’s word

Live truthful every day

Walking, living by what I’ve heard

And through Christ Jesus pray”.....

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.
