Love Thy Neighbor

Scripture asks us to love our neighbor.
But some think love comes without labor.
It's something we speak,
Not something we seek.
A fine cup of wine with no flavor.

Declarations of love make me laugh.
Without knowledge such words are just chaff.
You say I love you,
But that isn't true,
'Til you've traveled that ship, fore and aft.

A neighbor is a gem in a box,
Which is freely displayed without locks.
But when you decide
To not look inside,
Your love goes no deeper than the box.

It's the heart that defines who we are.
And you cannot love that from afar.
You have to dig in,
Look under the skin,
It takes patience to open that jar.

Any love less than this is a lie,
Just a superficial lullaby.
When you won't connect, 
It's sung for effect,
A performance arranged for the eye.

In God's kingdom, would this be your goal -
To have neighbors without heart or soul?
Should we love your grace,
Or only your face?
For a love without depth isn't whole.

If make believe love has sufficed,
Then your love is improperly priced.
Rewards one receives,
Show what he believes,
When such love has been offered to Christ.

For as you've loved the least of His flock,
Those empty faces there on your block,
That's how you love Him,
A name in a Hymn,
It's a church built on mud, not on rock.

So before He meets us at the gate,
Learn this lesson before it's too late.
Love's ultimate goal, 
To open the soul,
Is a truth that determines our fate.

Three Atheistic Limericks

Three Atheist limericks 
	for April Fools' Day 2006


Dear Mrs. Schiavo: Goodbye. 
	
Dear Mrs. Schiavo:  Goodbye.
Fifteen years was a long time to die.
   Your husband was brave
   To withstand the wave
Of inedible pie in the sky.  

Why San Diegans remove Crosses from public Land

The SD City Council must hold strong:
Those mountaintop Christians are wrong.
   Crucifixion's the sign
   Of insensitive minds
Not the Native Americans' song.

Unrequited Faith

Dear Judeo-Christian God:
Your behavior's exceedingly odd.
   You let Hitler misbehave
   Then killed thousands with waves
And can't keep your priests' hands  off  kids'  bods!

What the Radical Religious Rabble Rousers Are Thinking

All of Islam deserves our hate
Unlike ours—this faith can’t be great
The ground zero mosque
Is an evil kiosk
Our lord says to obliterate

What’s better than the Ku Klux Klan
And frightens the bad Taliban?
Yes—with a book roast
America will toast
Those evil who read their Koran

Burning books ain’t nothing to fear
Infernos are fun with a beer
So with drink all cheer—(hip hip hooray!)
To hate is nothing queer
Hitler did it—and he we revere

religious institution


Once there was a man called Simon “the Institution”
Debated “shift from religious institutions to educational “
protection of individual conscience
protection of group rights, a science
Bloody these goals need a lot of research!

Limerick: Once a President of Bolivia

Limerick : Once a President of Bolivia

Once a President of Bolivia
Frothed oblanceolate green saliva
Must dream was Ashoka*
On Andes throne Inca
That’s how COCA-cola drug India.

*ASHOKA, b. circa 304 BCE (reigned: 273-232 BCE): King of Magadha,
was the first great commoner Buddhist Emperor
of India which, then, extended from Afghanistan 
to Bengal, and from Nepal to Southern Deccan.
Among his recorded edicts : concern for the peoples’
welfare ; medical attention for the needy ; arboured
thoroughfares ; nomination of officers to oversee
morality and magistrates ; forbade the slaughter of
animals for food or for religious purposes ; required
the reconciliation of all religious tendencies ; wanted
everyone to practice compassion and charity towards
one another and to follow the laws of the Dharma or
Righteousness ; and drew attention to the vanity of
glory and emphasised the supreme aim of Life itself.

Starbucks Song

There once was a company that brewed coffee
With lovely flavors like raspberry and toffee
     One year they made clear
     To remove all reindeer
Christians cry "Where's Holly Hobby?!?"

THEO-OLIGARCHIC HAPPENINGS IN SLOVENIA


URAN'S WILLY

Taking sides in discussions holily
About whether Uran used his willy
Means you're trapped in their game -
Either side is the same:
Cock distracts, cash departs, crowd stays silly.

Issues

Why is Isis such an issue 
Those affected by the crisis deserve a tissue
When a drone flies fast 
the bombs have a huge blast 
The cause is misused

Who Needs God the Most

Who Needs God the Most

Out of us who needs God the most?
Also Son and Holy Ghost
And for me to be fair
All of them I should share
About Them like to brag and boast.

Am Still Alive

Am Still Alive

Trump is still on earth and alive
From sins managed to survive
Thanks to God and all He did
Kept him from flipping his lid
No longer lies or will connive.

God Started Shaving

God Started Shaving

Off my sins God started shaving
Me from them was always saving
From each one he would release
Efforts to help others did increase
At God each morning will be waving.

We Have Waited

We Have Waited

Regardless of how lone we have waited
God our whole world surely satiated
Each crevice and cavern He did fill in
Even ones that are now a lion's den
With His things there can be educated.

God and Grueling

God and Grueling

God prevents things that are grueling
Me for a great day up started tooling
Sitting me down making me still
And showing me a new found skill
So much to learn in His schooling.

Sin Again and Again

Sin Again and Again

If my body and mind death did set in
My new life in heaven would begin
Body stayed in grave;
Place for me God did save;
Those on earth sin again and again.

Why So Much High Society

Why So Much High Society

Why is there so much high society;
Was this how God meant us to be;
New answer we now do desire
Each of us is sure to inspire;
From sin our souls are now set free.

Christ Redeeming People

Christ Redeeming People

While Christ many people was redeeming
Around His face a bright light was beaming
Which forever we knew continued to shine
On each Sunday commune with and do dine
And into church they started streaming.

Small Hands Will Appall

Small Hands Will Appall

Even though brains and hands are small
And so many people he is sure to appall
Compulsive behavior and does criticize
We are all sure soon he has to realize
In the end he must give God his all.

This might be the same story for
several of us.

An addition being that I have

A Trump Anecdote

Whenever I hear a Trump anecdote
Would like to grab him by his throat
Want to have freedom of choice
Not in any opinions he did voice
And people illegal when they vote.

Totally ridiculous.

Never Censure Christ

Never Censure Christ

Christ, we should never censure;
Experiences with Him are an adventure;
He does deserve all our praise;
How I sing to Him will amaze,
As I do it through each denture.

Radiance and Suspense

Radiance and Suspense

When our sin for us created a prison
For this very reason Jesus has arisen,
And again to return with His radiance
While we are waiting in much suspense
His presence have been sorely missing.

And our many mouths He will feed;
Daily on knees must pray;

No better way could it have been;
Christ died and saved us from sin;
On cross arms outspread;
Buried in cave when dead;
Jesus has arisen, amen and amen.

God In My Life

God In My Life

God in my life always does prevail,
And how sweet is sound of a nightingale;
Do love to hear,
Until does disappear;
Sin is set free and from me has set sail.

For Sermon Had Hunted

For Sermon Had Hunted

Again and again we had hunted
For copy of his sermon we wanted;
Much feeling in it would be found;
Adore each word and its sound;
Great knowledge to sermon amounted.

Transfiguration

Transfiguration

Certain things appear to be triggered
When a person has been transfigured;
A radiance was seen on Jesus's face
After receiving God's glory and grace,
And about all this we were beleaguered.

Ecstasy of God

What I like is a comforting thought,
And some for me God has brought;
Is available each and every day;
Remove and take our sins away;
In His ecstasy have been caught.

Became Beligerent

Became Beligerent

People near Christ became belligerent
Wondering what transfiguration meant;
Clothing glowed that in He was dressed;
All those around Him were impressed;
Thankful to God His Son had been sent.

Knowing my Savior was close and near;

After all my sins forever would disappear.

After my feet was clean and dried
It was then out I cried and cried
My sins were washed away
Clean feet are on display;
Soon God's Son will have died.
