evil misunderstood

is there a god of the heavens 
a true hebrew god?

a god full of wrath and love
i find that kind of odd 

is there a jesus of the jews?
a king of the promise land
who works miracles and wonders 
and heals sheep with his hands 

is there life beyond the flesh?
a place of everlasting love 
or is it all make believe?
something we are thinking of 


do we follow jesus or do we follow paul?
and if we follow an apostle why do we follow a messiah at all?

do we live in fear of sin careful of every step we take?
or let our conscience be filled with fear within for his names sake!

how much more dogma can we take?
and decpetion must we believe?
how many more lies must we partake 
for the salvation that we recieve?

what is good what is evil is it something that we hold?
is it convenient to embrace something new for something old?

how can evil be so bad if evil feels so very good?
i truly believe that  evil is just very misunderstood
