Jesus Pays Or You Pay

Everyone enjoys it when another will pay,
For sin the price was tendered at the cross.
By accepting Jesus it's exactly that way,
Rejection necessitates we pay for our dross.

At death, man's destination isn't left to guessing,
Or by some Church eulogy and clamoring voices.
For God sees the far side of any window dressing,
Judging our earthly tracks and lifestyle choices.

Things unseen by others are not concealed,
Time, is of the essence for repentance, don't delay.
For standing before God's throne all is revealed,
Examine your life and how you're living each day.

The actual picture will be much worse
than any picture your imagination has painted.

    I have not the same faith of you, Tom, but I appreciate your effort in form of a poem which sounds good and with appropriate rhymes. My opinion is that world could be much better if everybody, independently by own religion, used to live honestly and open to anyone else feelings without greed.
