“Whenever any individual rejects error and embraces truth, a last judgment passes upon that individual.” –William Blake in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell

“We cannot let this happen
here without response from us.
God calls us to repentance,
truth, faithful witness.”

The discussion thus began
and soon majority sways:
hold him to account for sin,
error of his ways.

In Christ no condemnation,
no ex-communication,
but reconciliation,
love, restoration.

Yet inside house of worship
people forget commandment,
prey there upon each other,
condemn in judgment.

Cyclical retribution
repeats ever endlessly.
As you point finger, ponder
error of your ways.

Too often have I sinned by
denying another grace,
and in such cold decision
overstepped my place.

I will forgive; I will pray
God angers not, brother mine,
at your certain stand for truth.
Peace, mercy be thine.

I love the story when someone asks Jesus how many times we should forgive a neighbor...and suggests maybe it be 7?
The questioner probably thought he was being generous. Perhaps Jesus would suggest as many as 4 or 5 times.
Jesus responds "70 Times 7."
The people I know who make the biggest display of their religion are the most unChristlike people I ever know.

How true this often is. Well penned, Dawn!

You speak the truth...this is powerful..
Great writing here Dawn...It is really
difficult to be the person that He wants
us to be.....only through Him can we..
