This is not meant to offend anyone, its just questions to think about.


Things that arenít understandable

Newscasters stated we filmed Bin Laden,

It shows him a year before 9/11.

Yet say, ďWhy didnít US kill him then?Ē

To kill him before he attacked us,

Is this murder?

Would it have made things better?


Things that arenít understandable

Media proclaims same gender sex is normal.

Canít procreate; the two donít fit.

Yet say, ďNo one can help their preference.Ē

 Abuse and stolen innocence,

Is this influence?

Would it point a child that way?


Things that arenít understandable

Religious preach and teach Godly behaviors.

Verbalize, do right, and live in peace.

Yet say, ďWho is he or she to give a chance?Ē

They treat honest people badly.

Is this love?

Would this bring others to God?


Things that arenít understandable

Many desire and choose the way of iniquity.

They see evilís pain and disillusion,

Yet say, ďLet them sow their wild oats now.Ē

Give a pill, patch, or a condom.

Is this approval?

Would it make their life easier?


Things that arenít understandable

The day has been rough and we need comfort.

We see the results of over eating.

Yet say, ďIíll eat another, and Iíll feel better.Ē

Stuffing ourselves with lots food,

Is this healthy?

Would it make our life better?


Things that arenít understandable

Life is hard, and Iíve been dealt many blows.

Read results of too much alcohol,

Yet say, ďDrinking will make me feel better."

I drive while under the influence,

Is this helpful?

Would my problems go away?


Things that arenít understandable

We continue to do things that hurt the most.

We know perfectly well the results.

Yet say, ďItís all right if everyone else does it.Ē

I want to be in and to be popular,

Is this Godly?

Is the broad path the way?

You ask some real hard questions, Patty. Very thought-provoking.

thoughtful piece to ponder. Life is a selfish adventure for quite a few Pat. Everyones faith and vision is different. Most of us get burned or wounded while in cildhood. I do not like people like Ben Laden, he is a selfish mean critter. I would get him and the others myself if I could. People who have no respect for others lives should be put to sleep. This is my selfish feelings speaking. Anyway, on another selfish note, most only understand what they wish and want to understand within their selfish agenda. Right and wrong doesn't matter to selfish mean people, they only care about getting their way. figure it. love and peace. G

Q:Some abuse and steal innocence,
A: most who abuse and steal innocence are NOT gay, not even close.

Q:Is this influence?
Would it point a child that way?

A: this is an asinine question, just showing the lack of analytical thinking runs rampant in america, becuae if one's parents had a direct influence on their sexual preference, then there would be no gay people now would there. also, even if it was so: so what?

Excellent write Patty! We only know the narrow path
when we know the Lord, and that is what most people
do not know!
