Many In Church Won't Forgive!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

Many In Church Won’t forgive…


There’s some who people in church disagree with.

Soon, this same one, they don’t want to be with.


Many in church have their cliques and socialize.

But there’s things in life they seem to “prioritize.”


They often talk about a message of salvation.

But it’s only if you meet their “expectation.”


If there’s something about you they still don’t like.

They have a subtle way of saying; “take a hike!”


Many in church don’t live the love they preach.

There’s so many lost souls that they can reach.


They often let pride and their feelings get in the way.

You can almost see it by the things they do and say.


They’re no different than the Pharisees Jesus dealt with.

These are the kind of people we don’t need to be with.


By this example, many in church bring Christ much shame.

As they often find someone else they can blame.


“It’s not unforgiveness.”  “I don’t want to be with you.”

“I really have nothing good I can say about you.”


“I don’t hate you.”  “You’re not the kind of person for me.”

“You look different and just aren’t my cup of tea.”


Fools!  You’ve made a shame of Christ’

death on the cross.

He sacrificed himself for everyone that was lost!


He didn’t “pick and choose” those he loved the most.

He was filled with compassion and the Holy Ghost!


If this is where you’re headed, it’s a dead end for sure.

You need to walk in God’s love that’s so pure!


Please do it today, while you still

have the time!

Allow God’s pure love to completely

fill y our mind!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
