…no, not in the Lord.
I’m losing my faith in men
as they drum up continuous discord.
They all claim, “absolute truth”.
Twisted flesh interpreting Word.
“Look at my way — ignore your own,
for your way is absurd!!”
The temple of stone erected,
with label and fable within.
No room for arguments of meaning,
just ranks and imperious men.
They leave a lasting impression
not fit for swine in mud.
They glorify their self-importance
as the sheep gladly shed their blood.
“Follow me, for I’ll get you to Christ —
I am the way, you see.
You need to serve our master
by giving your all to me!”
The teachers are a plenty,
for millions are around.
Just like divisions among the Church —
many thousands can be found!!
No, I’m not faithful to the fallen;
men and women who claim their ace.
They exalt themselves with degrees
they’ve earned in worldly place.
Where is the voice of God
available to every man?
Did the Church dissolve when taken
by Constantine’s Roman hand?
Flesh weaved the folly of current.
Men now serve men and self.
Holy Spirit has no dominion.
Hierarchy not lacking stealth!
“Sit in the back, I say, dear Jesus,
for this is the way we do.
Your services are secondary,
but oh, how we love you!”
