Blasphemy!!!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

            Blasphemy!!!

The church herself is oft to blame

For many vacant pews

Allowing some in Jesus’ name

To falsify His news

 

Some say in Christ, they’ve made their choice

God’s living Word is theirs

But never have they heard the voice

Of He who truly cares

 

Whatever good they’ve come to speak

What motive they’ve to tell

If Jesus’ face they’ve failed to seek

Danger remains of hell

 

Some dare to quote The Father’s Son

For gain, God’s Truth they’ll share

There’s so much talking going on

Where deeds are less than rare

 

It matters not how sweet they pray

How trendy is the sight

Blasphemy’s spoken night and day

Disguised in robes of light

 

Some say, in Christ I’m born again

To hand I’ve Heaven’s Sword

But still God’s name they take in vain

With “Thus says Christ The Lord”

 

Their deadly sin means nothing less

Than wearing Satan’s chains

False dogs should all deceit confess

Or else their filth remains

 

Blasphemous stench The Father hates

However good they’ve lied

No dog will enter Heaven’s gates

Nor liar, dwell inside….

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.
