Favourite Scriptures, Two Of

Genesis 0:0 'Before the beginning, God saw that the expanse was vast, and in its vastness it was empty and still, and it saddened him, and bored him a little, too. And before the first day, thus spake He: "I'll scribe a great tome, a thousand pages and more !" ' And he fulfilled his pledge and scribed a great tome, a thousand pages and more. And many great things were painfully matched with much great wickedness and iniquity, for God decreed that His Word make man and woman. Thus was His Word soon devoured. For the mighty man wielded His Word as a sword, and the greedy man sold it to the poor; the depraved man bent it to his most hateful will, and the foolish man gave way to them all. Alas ! None learned aught of its author. Revelation 23:1 'And God sat down to catch His breath, for his tome of the ages was perverted by wicked men, and the earth and heavens heaved with tumult. And after the last day, thus spake He: "I'm not too sure they got it." ' 31st May 2020 For Chantelle Anne Cooke's contest, Favourite Scripture

Premiere thoughts, indeed, Lawrence. While I don't agree with your theology, you have created a masterpiece of thought. I would argue that God knew all along of the rebellious tendency of mankind and planned for it. But that's another poem. Congratulations on your high placement in this Premiere contest and a POTD too.

God made man, then made him a help meet. Eve. Said, be fruitful and multiply. And so.. the World is filled. Prayers are certainly needed, as Satan's influence is everywhere. Congratulations Lawrence, on Poem of the Day. Still- In the beginning, is my favorite verse within your words. ~ Brandy

Thanks, Paula, appreciated. I cannot speak for Him/Her/Them, but from one mortal man's perspective, I'd say we've got ourselves in a right mess.

Hey, I like this gospel of Lawrence. I think these should be included in the 1000 page tome.

So many ways the Bible is devoured, distorted, misused, misumderstood...our president even used it like a dumbbell for a photo op yesterday. Thanks for sharing your deep, thought provoking words. I'm grateful it was spotlighted as POTD, or I would have missed it. Congrats! Have a great day, xx Rhonda
