Cleaning House

Why do some strive to fix others

when they can’t even fix themselves?

They’d rather avoid their own mess

and tidy up someone else.

They kick and scream about the failures of men,

pushing aside their own mirror image of sin.

It must be pleasing to avoid such decay —

no focus on the inner, just how others will pay.

Way up high, looking down on the rest.

Beating and bashing; they know what is best.

What a terrible way to treat all the world’s people.

Justifying the ways found under a steeple.

Doctrines divide the Body of Christ,

but the language you speak is the one that’s precise?

I don’t understand the prideful division,

and I don’t understand your righteous decision

to section yourself off from the rest of the hurting.

Gathering in a house divided — in sin, you are flirting.

Your little title is not mine…can you not read?

Baptist, Presbyterian, or Methodist? Let me see.

I find nothing in Scripture that says it’s okay

to claim such a title, so why do you say?

Perhaps your division is what causes your pain?

Perhaps it’s why you can’t see that we’re all the same?

Your house teaches division, it reflects it, and then

you overlook your own decay, and look at my sin.

Why do some strive to fix others

when they can’t even fix themselves?

They’d rather avoid their own mess

and tidy up someone else.
