Truth...


To live in denial does not change the truth
Or to claim there is no God
Does not free one of accountability
As his body is laid in the sod

We love darkness when our deeds are evil
Thinking its act none can find
God knows what we will do before it is done
A fool deceives his own mind

There are those who rebel against light
Because they have not understood
That God is compassion and mercy and love
He is Light and He is good

Since Eden this world was doomed to woe
The consequence of sin
But after this world we will go
To an eternity without end

To live in denial does not change the facts
In this life we are not doomed to loss
We can be saved, not by our own acts
But through blood shed upon a cross

To live in denial does not change the truth
All who live must die
Eternity’s destinies are only two
Hell below or heaven on high

“There are those who rebel against the light,
who do not know its ways
or stay in its paths. Job 24:131


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it. John 1; 1-5

  1. This poem reminded me of a quote...

    "A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell." ~ C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain
