The write, says it all! It's bad enough, that most often, we preach, to choir. It's another, when the choir, starts, quoting: the, devil's lies, in their, songs.


              How can it be both?

To praise the Lord and His people.
Through quotes and original words, too;
Then turn around and, go along,
with, ”new age” thought, and conclusions.


The, devil's lies, that, so many,

spew


It's like, hitting one out of the park,
for the Home team.


Then, changing sides, and batting, for: the, Opposing, team

too.

 

Its, way beyond, my understanding.

It sickens and disgusts; it makes,

your praise, a joke, you see,

cause your heart, I cannot trust.


What does it take today, to make one, see?


That if you spit, in God’s face, you’ll, eventually:
have to pay.


The price is death, and that’s no joke,
but all the bullshit is.
Jokes are for the immature, barely fit, for kids.



It’s truly, sad, an awful, shame:
when you, talk, out, both sides of your, mouth.


Yet, still can, dare to claim:
that you are, all, for the Lord,
aver your,  Godly stand.



When all the while, your house is built, on: nothing,
but, sand.

Then,” nothing” must, be:
on, and for, what,
you, really,
stand!

Excellent Art, but sometimes we must remember that God is the judge, and others faith is their business, if God gives us a choice we can't take it from them. You have the right to stick to your principles and say what you believe, that much I agree with!

Hi Art...

I won't call people down about their faith because they do have their own ideas. I'm happy that God put the balance with that belief
of mine with your bravado. Good verse needed to shake up the mix in people's faith and how they practice it.

A great Statement of Faith Art.

How I wish I could have been more consistent in my life too.

Sadly, all those bouts with anger and jealousy, all those struggles with the lust of the flesh and covetousness, and all else that is associated with the sin nature, are real battles that test the moxie of everyone striving to walk in faith.

"I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee," and . . . "all men have sinned and fallen short,"

Thank God for His mercy as we walk our paths!
