Does Anyone Still Preach on Sin???

Does Anyone Still Preach On Sin?
Where are the preachers who
 actually preach on sin?
Where is the fire of God that
totally consumes within?
One thing that is much
needed this very hour.
Is God's presence and his
majesty and power!
Many preachers seem
worried "they may offend."
Too many are afraid they'll "lose a friend."
If they really preach God's
word as they ought to do.
Hardly anyone would be sitting in the pew.
No wonder there's so much sin
and perversion to be found.
The truth of God's word
has been turned "upside down."
It's time we raise a holy
 standard in our lives
Listening to God's word and
no more of man's lies.
The judgement of God begins
 at his house--this is so clear.
Watch out--his righteous judgement
 is so very near!
What will you be doing, when he
knocks at your heart's door?
Do you really know
whom you are living for?
It's heaven or hell--there is
no middle road in between.
It's time to confess and repent
of all that's unclean.
It's only in Jesus...not religion...
that will save your soul.
 Jesus waits for you and
 desires to make you whole!

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!
