Feel Good Religion ~

Dead Works ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Dead - IBible Verse

I love the feel good religion,
like the one you hear today
I like knowing God loves me
no matter what I do or say.

I like giggling and laughing,
as the pastor jokes around
I like all the modern music
with that big band sound.

I like the laid back attitude,
the easygoing, off beat tempo
I love that the mega building
is progressive and contempo.

I like the main message,
about being richly blessed
I like the fact that my sins
I no longer have to confess.

I like not having to repent,
or change my ways or views
I like I’m not told anymore
what to God, is or isn’t taboo.

I love the feel good religion,
like the one you hear today
but, I love Jesus more . . .
so I think from it, I’ll stay away!

2 Corinthians 11:13-15

” For such are false apostles, deceitful workers,
transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

And no marvel; for Satan himself
is transformed into an angel of light.

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers
also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;
whose end shall be according to their works.”

No Longer Guilty ~

No Longer Guilty ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

At the foot of the cross,
my tears mixed with shame
and I felt such deep regret
as I cried out His name.

“Lord, I know my sins,
have caused You much pain
please come into my life
my soul, my heart and reign.”

Waves of guilt passed by,
one-by-one they marched on
I looked to God and praised Him
for the gift of His beloved Son.

As I prayed for forgiveness,
confessing to Him my every sin
I could feel His love and mercy
purging the shame I felt within.

I was redeemed by grace,
that day Jesus died for me . . .
and there at the foot of the cross
He declared me ~ no longer guilty!

“Being justified
freely by his grace

through the redemption
that is in Christ Jesus:”

The Burden of Religion ~

The Burden of Religion ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, please set me free . . .
from the burden of religion
cast aside the smoke and mirrors
that are clouding up my vision.

Break down the wall of greed,
shatter the egotistical foundation
that is in Your church today
so I’ll not be led into temptation.

Sever the chains of works,
tear apart the man-made laws
crush under Your foot
each statute and every clause.

Pull me out from under,
all the whistles and the bells
take way all my earthly idols
lest I may find myself in hell.

Lord, please set me free . . .
from being just religious
for I know without repentance
there will be no forgiveness!
