I wonder what God would say

I wonder what God would say 
About those who come before him,
Only to use his name
To gather financial gain..

I wonder what God would say
When the first thing you do 
When you leave your place of worship
Is engage in idle gossip...

I wonder what God would say
To those who don't know the lives of their brothers,
Yet find it fit to criticize 
And fight down one another...

I wonder what God would say
About those who claim
To proclaim in his name
Only for fortune and fame...

I wonder what God would say
About the tongue of man
Used to slander 
And engage in malicious behavior...

I wonder what God would say
To those who reveal secrets
Made known to them in confidence,
Causing them to lose the trust that was once placed in them...


I wonder what  God would say  
To those who endorsed slavery
Giving permission to trade human beings
Buying and selling them like property..

I wonder what God would say
About those who say they're blessed
And have experienced his greatness
Yet find it hard to follow a path of kindness...

I wonder what God would say
About our man made decisions 
To create separation
Through racism, sexism and religion

I wonder what God would say
About so many things..
If he existed only in our minds
And not in the outreach of our lives
As we've been taught to believe as a child...

I wonder what God would say...
Would he regret his decision
To place man on this earth,
His decision to give woman
The ability to procreate; to give birth,
His decision to give us the ability to think
And choose freely;-
As to whether we believe in the theory of Evolution 
Or the theory of Creation?
All in all it's still our decision 
To make
But I've always wondered what God would say...
