“MAN MADE THE BIBLE SCARY”
( A poem)
Man made the Truth complicated,
God would never do a thing like that!
Humans wanted to change their history
by making it a mystery
no one could understand.
That is just the opposite
of what God had planned.
The “created” decided
to create a Creator,
of their own choice,
so they could hear the shouts of men
above God’s still small voice.
Man made the Bible scary,
full of darkness across the land,
making a child of God leery,
least they get buried in the sand.
The sand of ritual and dogma,
shutting out all the Light.
So that those who live in His Kingdom
must learn how to fight.
Fight the good fight with glory,
Fight the good fight with love.
With their hearts ever knowing
all their strength and glory
comes from above.
From the King of all creation,
from the Prince of peace,
everyone that shall know Him,
shall find a wonderful release.
Release from the prisons,
release from the pains,
by giving Christ the reigns.
The choice is always one of fear or love…and we make those kinds of choices everyday. It does seem that the world around us operates more on fear than love, and that most seem more fascinated with eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil than eating of the Tree of Life.
I wrote this poem only a few days ago and wanted to put it on before I started my “Jesus is All and Everything” series of articles to show another aspect of how the Truth verses religion. And also because my first article will be about Jesus being the Tree of Life.
May He have His arms around you!
JESUS IS ALL AND EVERYTHING!!
