Today in the church,
it’s hard for me to find
those who are seeking Jesus
with all their hearts and minds.
I listen to the preacher’s sermons,
I read the teacher’s blogs
but sometimes it feels as if
I am in a decomposing bog.
It seems the truth is decaying,
there’s no fine line in the sand
and I wonder if Jesus . . .
for their foolishness would stand.
I know all about forgiveness,
and the gift of His eternal grace
but to continue on in sin . . .
is to God ~ a disgrace.
Years ago, Jesus told the women,
He’d not condemn her for her sin
but then He warned her . . .
not to go and sin again.
Sin is sin,
no matter how you look at it
and today in the church
the sinner comfortably sits.
It’s no longer popular,
to speak against sinful things
it’s all about God’s love . . .
and the wealth that it brings.
But, God is more than love,
He has another side of Him too
and one day He’ll bring His wrath
upon the sin that His people do.
So, I am desperately seeking Jesus,
in the new age church of today and
if I cannot find the truth I think . . .
I’ll just stay away!
King James Version
“When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman,
he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers?
hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord.
And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee:
and sin no more.”
Deborah Ann Belka
