A Big Problem in Churches Today...

A Big Problem In Churches Today…


There’s a big problem in churches deep within…

Very few preach on the topic of; “SIN.”


Sin is a very powerful and destructive force!

Many families are coming apart and ending in divorce!


Getting involved in perversions of various kinds…

Many are getting a garbage of filth in their minds!


Too many pastors are afraid to preach of a God who’s HOLY!

They remain silent and consider it a bunch of “baloney!


It’s just too easy to come and play “the Sunday game.”

But at home…  Things are not the same!


Not everyone in church is doing fine and “o.k.”

It doesn’t matter how you listen or what you say!


God is a God of love but also of holiness too!

He wants the best kind of life

 for me and YOU!


He said to “take up the cross and come follow me!”

This is the only way we can be



Whatever sin or problem is “holding you down.”

Seek the awesome presence of Jesus

that can be found!


If you can’t find his presence

in your church building…

Come to him in prayer! 

Seek his power of forgiving!


He is God!  There is NOTHING that you need to fear!

Through the blood of Jesus… 

Your sins will disappear!


He is and will always reward those

who diligently seek him!

All of your struggles you can put “beneath him!”


“Though your sins be as back as scarlet,

they can be as white as snow!”

Once you’ve met the master. 

And the redeemer of your soul!

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!
