Truth These Days Seems Up For Grabs.

Truth these days seems up for grabs,
When at God Word they take their jabs.
The truth of God, it will not fail
Though so many against it rail.

They will someday, bear the shock
When they stand before the God they mock
“How can we know” is their battle cry
Ignorance is bliss, is what they imply.

If we cannot know, we can’t be charged.
With immorality enlarged
God is not fooled by sinful games
And everyone, He knows their names.

For all men know, is what He said
Still they suppress the truth instead.
Without excuse, they stand and wait
To face the Law they desecrate.

Yet truth can still break the Lock
When they meet the Stumbling Block
His mercy’s there for all who come
When to Truth, they do succumb.

Doug,

You're a poet, and didn't even know [it] ;-) :-)!

All kidding aside, Doug, that is an awesome bit of poetry--and you've nailed the central problem with the PoMo church--she's adrift in pragmatic relativism; and she's lost her anchor, the authority of God's Word!

Good edifying work, Doug!

In Christ,

Bobby Grow

That's a good one Doug. To true. Unfortunately, an agnostic attitude will not protect those who refuse to acknowledge what God has revealed.

"What can be more unreasonable than to draw water from a running stream, and never to think of the fountain from which that stream flows? It follows that no proper excuse can be found for the ignorance of the world in not knowing Christ, before he was manifested in the flesh; for it arose from the indolence and wicked stupidity of those who had oppurtunities of seeeng Him always present by His power."

We cirtainly could do with some more influential men of God such as Luther, who said:

"I am convicted by the Scripture...and my conscience is captive by the Word of God."

Relativism is one of the most damaging things to Truth. Relativism allows no truth as it is all subjective and open to opinion.

In my opinion Relativism is a dangerous falsehood.

According to Relativism I must be right, no matter what anyone else thinks.

Relativism simply dissapears in a puff of logic.
