We are taught not to judge but how far does that go?
Yes, we're all taught to love but how much of it shows?
We like to throw stones at the devil's scapegoats
Yet the ears that will listen are hearing this quote:
"Judge not lest ye be judged", and isn't it true?
Or are some people so bad that our judgment is due?
Did you think that salvation was exclusive to you?
If you light fires of judgment won't you be consumed?
I can't speak for you but I don't want to judge people
After all, under God we are all loved as equals
When I join the accuser and his self-righteous band
Somehow I can see my own sins in the sand

Hope is the anchor that secures my soul
Needed for endurance as the Bible foretold
One of three qualities, along with faith and love
I am filled with hope to honor my Holy Father above
Hope in God's promises lightens my heavy load
It's instilled in me when I venture down a dark road
Hope has power to keep me moving in the right direction
And there I will find the mercy and love of God's protection
Hope is a means of trusting in what will be
Faith in the unseen; that is what hope means to me
Life without it fences me inside a brick wall without a gate
I believe in the Word of God; I do not adhere to destiny or fate

On earth, as it is in heaven,
Or the Bible tells me so--
I wonder if in heaven,
Will the winds of autumn blow?
Or will there be a garden,
Will the morningglory grow--
I wonder if in heaven
Will the springs of summer flow?
And just beyond the pearly gates
Will the seasons come and go--
I wonder if in heaven
Will there fall a flake of snow?
Or will my love be waiting there;
Shall I find my crimson rose?
And marvel at her beauty...
The smile Da Vinci knows.

absence, adventure, age, anger, bible, words,
Slowly I see the light decrease off your hand
You say love but do you see my eyes
Surviving you is a long vanished pen
As building it through is what I witness
Occasionally you grasp me effortless
This new found conviction is astonishing
As you see my devotion but never entitle it
Perhaps in time you will revolutionize
So I give you my voice to authentic expectation
Love should never harm, as I do find you irresistible
I pray to up beyond but at wish some things aren't precise
So I just listen to a spirit, as my future plays a shipping canal
And this is the power, the power of now.

introspection, people, social,
two bible-blabbering, prattling pastors
from two denominational sectors
ended up in stitches and bloody plasters;
those around said it actually began
when one yelled, "faith alone can save a man!",
the other screamed, "only charitable acts can!";
swinging bulky bibles, shouting curses,
they whacked each other's eardrums and noses,
bludgeoned and bloodied their righteous faces;
so ironic, how they maimed each other
for faith, for charity and didn't bother
to heed the Lord's words: "Love one another."

In the Catholic Schools of the West
All students are put to a test
Their head must go South
With an open mouth
To measure who comes off the best
A priest is never too fickle
An Adam's Apple to tickle
No need to repent
Its all Heaven-sent
The meek love sucking a pickle
Virile men should become a priest
So many are needed back East
Beneath every frock
Likes a ticking clock
Hungry mouths in need of a feast
The Bible predicts that a beast
Will plunder the Great and the Least
So you can do more
To even the score
When you serve this world as a priest!

inspirationaleaster, earth, love,
L-ove for one another is what we all need.
O-n earth especially with all of the greed.
V=anity of vanities can plant it's own seed.
E-ach one should love as in the Bible we read.
T-he Ten Comandmants tell us to love.
H-ave mercy on us we pray to the Lord above.
Y-et we still don't love, we wear a face glove.
B-ring all your burdens to the cross, we say.
R-easoning that Jesus shed His blood there one day.
O-nly He had the greatest love for mankind, and for their sins did pay.
T-hen after three days in the ground where he lay,
H-e arose from the dead, on earth could not stay.
E-very Easter we celebrate this wondrous Love.
R-emembering Christ and His Love from above.

bible, christian, faith, god, heartbroken, hope, inspiration, inspirational, prayer, religious,
Soft, still, the silence heaves
I inhale, the Spirit breathes;
Flowing, growing Christ bestowing
Life and strength surpassing knowing.
Scented, soothing, respiration
Taking in His inspiration;
Filling, feeling Christ exalted
Love and Grace supremely vaulted.
Sure, secure the Spirit wind
Where flows the Sovereign;
God revealing Christ resplendent
Hope and purpose codependent.
When He breathes upon the morn
Hope has dawned and life is born;
He my all in all shall be
From now unto eternity.

bible, creation, cute love, humor, humorous,
God creates male and female
A Slight Improvement
All it took was one rib,
Adam wouldn’t miss it.
Look what he gained.
At first sight, he uttered
an ancient word the equivalent
of the modern, “Wow!”
From the best use of a rib
of all time, came a creature
capable of charm, seduction,
procreation, gentleness, envy,
love, virtue, loyalty, jealousy,
deceit, and an affinity for salt.
Though she came from man,
she seeks always to best him,
and considers herself superior
in every way. After all, she has
that extra rib.

bible, christian, jesus, love, sea, truth, water,
Find me in the sea full of empty shells.
They are bones over Noah’s burnt vessel,
ashes of gopher, Calvary’s wood the
timeless ark and rungs on Jacob’s ladder.
Moor your might to my truth and blink your eye.
Before you’re adrift in Luke’s gulf, find me.

death, grandmother, loss, mother,
Easter brings back sad memories.
My mother died on Good Friday.
She was a bible scholar and quoted
Jesus's words every day to us kids.
I remember her love for lavender,
Her operatic gentle voice singing to us.
How she loved little children with joy
And what a great grandmother she was.

A pure red rose I send to you
It carries love from me
Believe in all you know to be true
The rose will bloom eternally .
Its fragrance forever will allure
The petals will be as soft as lace
Keep it safe and forevermore
True love you will embrace .
Every morning when you open your eyes
You will feel contented bliss
Your heart a whirl of butterflies
As my loving rose you kiss .
Safely in your bible pressed
My rose was in heaven made
Feel the warmth of gods caress
The rose of love will never fade .
Bask in the glory of forever
Give praise to god above
Let us march through this life together
Sharing the red rose of true love.

I love u Jesus for what you've done for me
You died on the cross of Calvary
You didn't think about your self
Coz you wanted me to be saved from hell
The crown of thorns upon your head
And the fact that for my sin you bled
When I think about the pain that u bore
I start to love u more and more
Words can't express my love for you
You've changed my life made it brand new
So now I have a place secured in Paradise
I'll reach there when I close my eyes
I want to live to please you Lord
Coz you are the maker, the One true God

Of Man, and Prince of Peace,
Lamb of God,The Annointed One,
And Omega, and King of Kings,

bible, christian, dedication, devotion, jesus, joy, true love,
Yes, all to Him, I owe!
He paid the price,
the debt that I had greatly owed.
No greater gift He gave, His "life!"
How precious is the blood!
of the lamb that was slain.
For He rose "Jesus," after that faithful Third day alive!
with all power over hell, death and the grave!
How lovely and excellent is the great name.
For it is the name, that is above all other names.
"Jesus," "God is Salvation" "Christ" "The Anointed One."
Resurrected glorified is He, and alive for evermore.
The Commencement and End to all things,
and is coming back again!

The Word of God Yahweh is
like air for the believer
The Word of God is like food for the soul
It is a map that leads us on the right path
The Word God Yahweh gives us hope
when we feel like we want to give up
the Word of God Yahweh gives us hope
The Word of God Yahweh is
a light in this dark world
The Word of God transforms our lives
When we are weak the Word
gives us strength
There is no other who love like God
In God’s tender loving arms is
Where I belong
In this Word is where I live
But it is not my home
God’s love and mercy is
what keeps me from day to day

Wodon gave them song and verse
Promethius gave them fire
Dionysius gave them wine and games
Orpheus played the lyre
Atlas held the world aloft
Fenrir consumed it whole
Ceres gave them seeds and crops
Ran the waves that roll
Pandoras box kept evil locked
Rati set love free
Boreas brought the winters frost
Eostre, springs fertility
But for my name they are nothing,
Upon these you may not call,
For I am christ the jealous god,
And I destroyed them all
So do not sing mousai's songs
Rebrand all festivities
For each of you are heathen
And theres is only me

I love you too much
To let anything bad happen to you
I love you too much
To see you do bad things
I love you too much
To do nothing
I wont sit and do nothing
I will stop you
Even if I have to hurt you to save you
I wont sit and do nothing
It’s nothing personal
I just love you too much

beauty, bible, community, dedication, miracle, perspective, prayer,
They are scarred, barely able to write a letter
But her hands have helped make us humans better
I prayed from afar, chasing a revolution, another falling star
She sacrificed by nursing the aged. A Sister? Friend? Daughter?
In the winter of my life, I cannot see with these eyes
I won't see her hands - I know they are scarred prayers in disguise
Jesus still heals ... Is it His will to heal my eyes, my future, me?
Viola! I pray my Savior heals her hands (My greatest testimony).

Oh,, this is gonna be the night
Feelin’ the warmth of this incredible sight..
I will love you with all my might.
Holdin’ you in my arms so tight..
My lips run into your neck..
And I whisper in your ears
“Let’s make love in the full moonlight”…
Let’s make a night…
Sweet, gentle breeze touches our skin
We are dancing to the rhythm of love
Let me be the one tonight
Who will embrace you so tight
Let’s make love in the moonlight
Let the swaying leaves be the witness
Of this sweet love we have
Let the soft, gentle wind touch our skin..
Let’s make love tonight..

bible, christian, easter, endurance, friendship, jesus, relationship,
The sky looks blue and alluring
The lovers look tired but enduring
Clinging to love which has waned and disappearing
As memories of yesterday kept on interfering
Love looked so real and true
Filled every night with warmth untrue
Made them believe in peaceful bliss
Which did not go beyond the deceitful kiss
Human love so weak and ephemeral
Comes with intensity so ethereal
But crumbles as fast under a weak foundation
Cause it has a beginning and an end
God's love is ever enduring
Neither beginning nor ending
Love so pure and caring
Demonstrated on the cross in a manner so glaring.
by Charles Abraham |
bible, blessing, christian, faith, inspirational, jesus, spiritual,
People use this earth like a facility
To generate felicity
Finding happiness in everything that's wrong
Like drinking, smoking and using a bong
But what's the point of this when your life is gone?
You could end up a murderer or a con
Acting like everything is fine when its actually upside down
Why don't you come to Jesus Christ, exchange your cross for a crown
Girls have modesty, don't wear a sleazy gown
Coz you might attract the wrong crowd
And that's not what love is about
Let the Word of God change you inside out
And may the Holy Spirit dispel all your fears and all your doubts

From Wikipedia: The Bible Belt is an informal region in the Southern United States in which socially conservative evangelical Protestantism plays a strong role in society and politics, and Christian church attendance across the denominations is generally higher than the nation's average.
