Heaven forbid, He who many claim to be
the son of God made no such claim, God forbid.
He was taught and learned the ways of sin you see
from rabbi, these very learned and conflicted men.

One God was on Joseph's son lips not named;
one god and he but one son, who wished to enfold
the untold numbers who did not believe the same.
He was of God's chosen people, sons of Abraham.

Believe as did he, whom was given Christ's name
all mankind lives in the palm of one God's hand.
A god who created and does understand, orchestrate
all, undivided, twixt good and bad, small men's dole.

Fear not all actions which create or destroy are known
and forgiveness given for we are but bone.
Actions, consequences, choices, creation's plan,
God unnamed abides within the clay of man.

"God unnamed abides within us" is a moot point. When one 'personalizes' God and brand names it - it's no God! I agree with your point of view.

One damn fine poem! So delighted to find another poet who like me is not a biblical literalist...and your work very well put-together as well! What more can I say? Love this.
