Did we make Him a God for our convienence, so we can keep on keeping on, I think so, celebrate all he was, and is, but don't use Him for an excuse,

 

 
 
 
Does anyone really care?
When Easter eggs we share,
While blood and tears ran to his feet,
Did He have, Easter eggs for treat?
 
This God, you nailed upon the cross,
Was it another sacrificial loss?
Stop celebrating, his demise,
For most your truth, are really lies,
 
Selfish surely and as usual,
The point you missed is crucial,
He died a man for His convictions,
Brave, for his love, bate no restrictions,
 
Stop begging his forgiveness,
But live the truth and wisdom with which he me and you did bless,
Love your neighbour, your fellow man,
And try as hard as you possibly can,
 
Stop slobbering all over him,
Whining about your sin,
If that’s all, He’s good for, for you,
When you celebrate his death, you do,
 
Think of Him again more clearly,
A man He was, a God most nearly,
Don’t just use Him, for any excuse?
I can’t possible be just like Him, for He was God, what is the use.©08/04/2012

We do live in a society of convenience. Drive-in salvation, the beach by noon to ogle at the neighbors wife in her bikini. That isn't a sin is it? Patrick

Donít just use Him, for any excuse

So many seem to be doing just that these very sad days, and even sadder, many of them are our so called 'leaders.'

i think you're sadly leaving out the key element... His resurrection
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 4/8/2012
I don't believe he was a God, but Jesus, like so many good men in history, was treated to a cruel and untimely death that we can blame only our ignorance and superstition for.
