Pro and Con

Posted Monday, October 1, 2012, at 12:16 PM

The paths are quite clear, once one is too near,
As-in, passing beyond mortal life,
Repentance required, before knowing, True Fear,
Or, True Joy of being God's Wife.
Pro and Con
By Arley Steinhour 100112

We have brains, we have hearts,
when it rains, we may get wet,
We have moving, and growing parts,
To dance with Jesus, a winning bet.

So many people, gnash, and wail,
Eating of life's forbidden fruit,
That's why too many go to jail,
Where man wears an inmate suit.

Six thousand years, came and went,
With life-focus on 'here and now,'
Ignoring God, we're still Hell-bent,
Sin-filled living, is life on a garbage scow.

Our hearts are bound by prison wear,
We need not suffer, if we full Repent,
Baptized in Spirit, His Love, freely share,
So, through Eternal, we live under God's Tent.

We seem to desire, life on edge of knife,
A life filled with death and Social blight,
Preferring to feel the pain and strife,
Refusing safe harbor, in God's 'Way and Light.'

Bridegroom comes, with pomp, and horn,
Snatching His Bride, those souls reborn,
Leaving behind many folk forlorn,
Who'll wish they'd never been born.

A Love, God-deep, can never sleep,
By His Grace, Faith lifts you up,
Mortality, only, should make you weep,
Fear-not, when on His Love, you sup.

Please join the hearts, set truly free,
Through God's Holy Grace, Salvation,
To be His eternal, blessed family,
A Joy-filled, and Eager, God's Nation.
