    I wonder when
    God looks down at America
    if He feels warm and fuzzy
    as we would like to think
    when I think of the things
    that actually provoke Him
    not just things He doesn't like
    but the things that stir up
    His slow moving anger
    I see the reasons and results
    of His wrath around the world
    I think of the first commandment
    not to mention the second
    and just why are those first
    and foremost on His list
    I'd like to think that we
    don't put anything before God
    and that we don't worship anything
    else besides God
    but that just ain't reality
    we are a land in desperate need
    of real and righteous reform
    we are a world in desperate need
    of real and righteous reform
    how many worship the almighty dollar
    and how many of God's words do we
    neglect for the sake of greed
    and materialism
    how much time does the mind spend
    on money meditating on mammon
    how many ways in one day is
    money glorified
    and how many other gods are their
    to be worshipped and adored
    above God
    we know we love our sex
    love to bow down to the glorification
    of flesh
    even sacrifice children to the
    false and ancient gods of lust
    and hedonism
    we go to the churches of freaky
    and free sex and fleshly indulgences
    where hypnotic rhythms and lyrics of all types
    and styles of songs
    teach us of the proper ways to worship
    in the temples of actual spiritual beings (who probably
    wear spiritual T-shirts that say "demons need love too"
    or "worship us, it's oh so easy") fallen from God
    we go to temples that provide every type of vice
    and transgression to worship and meditate on things
    not of God ignoring the consequences
    and then go to temples where we offer up lives
    of the unborn to atone for sins of our own
    falling further and further into the snares
    and deceptions until it is too late and we
    are in far too deep
    I wonder how many signs will God send
    before it is too late to hope He would stay His hand
    but this is hardly poetry
    and I'm just a man
    wondering...

    HARDLY POETRY

    skrybe7,

    The topsy turvy reality that you describe is exactly what must infuriate an otherwise loving God. There is nothing really poetic, outside of the holy scriptures, words of Jesus, etc., because of how they supernaturally interact with the reciever. Jesus wasn't always pleased with the scribes of his day, but today glory has been given unto God because of the questions you pose. Great works! Peace.
