Warriors with No Kingdom


Spineless hoard!

So terrified of loss.

Vainly, they stand

For the opinions of another man’s religion.

Religion, a man’s way of pleasing his version of God.

In that respect

There are as many religions as people who have lived.

The spineless want peace.

Quite willingly,

They toss away the peace of God in Christ,

That they may be left alone

To pursue their religion of Man.

_____________

See how their religion

Requires hatred through defining:

“You spoke a bad word.”

“You thought a bad thought“.

“You did something vile”.

“You have transgressed our pact with one another“.

“For this, and many more, we condemn you”.

So says they who love their worthless peace.

Those who despise their brother; reveling in the demise of their neighbor.

So bright they think themselves to be.

Performing mental gymnastics;

Wielding the piercing sharpness of their wicked forked tongue.

All the while glowing with darkness in a land filled with nothing.

Indeed, go then!

Be righteous among your righteousness.

Disavow the glory of God in Christ;

You spineless worthless hoard!

Make me


No one can make me hate.

No one can fill my mouth with hateful words.

No one can cause me to incite another to violence.

All of that is in my own heart.

Control of that lives in my own heart.

Even if my mind tells me to agree with all those evil things, my mind also reminds me not to do them.

No one can make you mad. it’s a choice you willingly make to vent your own frustrations.

All these things are true. When will we start to do them?

The Missing Clue


There are so many who go through life without the slightest idea of why they’re here. Their best clue is to adopt some sort of higher ritual. At the height of their glory they are no more godly than a mockingbird is human.

The only reason for being here, living this life until death, is to serve the living God by allowing his holy son to become your sacrifice and master.

Armchair Humans


The world is in trouble. Everything that can be wrong is wrong. Why bother to itemize the list.

Everyone is a critic. Everyone seems to know what everyone else should do. And, by golly, they’re not afraid to speak.

What’s missing in all this wicked chaos? Why, the ANSWER is conspicuously missing.

Christ is the ANSWER. And those who know that ought to fill their mouths with repair.

Would you be brave?

Would you be useful?

Then love your fellow man by risking alienation.

Speak of Christ.

Is it time to put your hand down?

Is it time to pull in your index finger?

Is it time to deliver hope instead of accusation or worthless correction?

Armchair priests, judges and executioners. Compassionless, gutless, useless, and fragile people who think they are something simply because they had a thought.

Is it possible that keeping the words of Christ from our brothers of flesh is simply a violent retaliation dressed in the fear and embarrassment that is sure to come? “Let them all burn in hell! I’m intent on saving my own skin.”

Does the body of Christ look down on those who willingly speak the word of God for the sake of His honor and The Hope of their brothers of flesh?

I’ve only asked the questions. The answers are in your heart.
