Plain Words

a lipogram God’s Word is a mirror, strong proof, basic, factual tool which can typify mankind. Archaic illustration from this book… abduction, untruths, conniving and killing. Individuals, loyal to God for a long span abruptly drop control, turning corrupt. King David was a man with a mind for God How did such disloyalty occur? First a craving for that which was not his own having way too much; lust commands sway. Gravidity runs to duplicity Finally, fornication’s offspring turns into assassination’s aid. Words unmask a king’s guilt, Nathan’s symbolism. Most important, words also log his sorrow - “My sin is against you, my Lord.” David is pining for pardon; his ransom awaits. David owns up to truth; his body, spirit and soul worn out, his rapport with God brought back always mindful of its implications
