We believe in Marx, Freud,and Darwin We believe everything is OK as long as you dont hurt anyone to the best of your definition of hurt, and to the best of your knowledge.
We believe in sex before, during, and after marriage. We believe in the therapy of sin. We believe that adultery is fun. We believe that sodomys OK. We believe that taboos are taboo.
We believe that everythings getting better despite evidence to the contrary. The evidence must be investigated And you can prove anything with evidence.
We believe theres something in horoscopes UFOs and bent spoons. Jesus was a good man just like Buddha, Muhammed, and ourselves. He was a good moral teacher though we think His good morals were bad.
We believe that all religions are basically the same-at least the one that we read was. They all believe in love and goodness. They only differ on matters of creation, sin, heaven, hell, God, and salvation.
We believe that after death comes the Nothing Because when you ask the dead what happens they say nothing. If death is not the end, if the dead have lied, then its compulsory heaven for all excepting perhaps Hitler, Stalin, and Genghis Kahn
We believe in Masters and Johnson Whats selected is average. Whats average is normal. Whats normal is good.
We believe in total disarmament. We believe there are direct links between warfare and bloodshed. Americans should beat their guns into tractors. And the Russians would be sure to follow.
We believe that man is essentially good. Its only his behavior that lets him down. This is the fault of society. Society is the fault of conditions. Conditions are the fault of society.
We believe that each man must find the truth that is right for him. Reality will adapt accordingly. The universe will readjust. History will alter. We believe that there is no absolute truth excepting the truth that there is no absolute truth.
We believe in the rejection of creeds, And the flowering of individual thought.
If chance be the Father of all flesh, disaster is his rainbow in the sky and when you hear
State of Emergency! Sniper Kills Ten! Troops on Rampage! Whites go Looting! Bomb Blasts School! It is but the sound of man worshiping his maker.
Rejecting the beneficial transcendent moral authority of the Bible, which provides liberty with its necessary limits, with the immutable holy Creator as God, not the created, the objectively baseless morality of secularism promotes everyone doing what it right in his own eyes (contra. Dt. 12:8), resulting in the most morally confused generation America has ever raised, open to the ever morphing degrees of immorality, with gaining carnal pleasures, possessions and prestige being exalted, and leaders who "by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple." (Rm. 16:18).
This paradigmatic change may be seen to have manifestly begun with the 60's sexual revolution, which the Left sees as a success, while we reap the fruits of its corruption. But Jesus does save sinners.
I do not know much about the author, British journalist Steve Turner, but he has some other Christian poems, such as this excerpt,
If Jesus was thirty today they wouldnt really care about the public ministry, theyd be too busy investigating His finances and trying to prove He had Church or Mafia connections. The miracles would be explained by an eminent and controversial magician, His claims to be Gods Son recognised as excellent examples of Spoken English and immediately incorporated into the O-Level syllabus, His sinless perfection considered by moral philosophers as, OK, but a bit repressive.
If Jesus was thirty-one today Hed be the fly in everyones ointment- the sort of controversial person who stands no chance of eminence. Communists would expel Him, capitalists would exploit Him or have Him smeared by people who know a thing or two about God. Doctors would accuse Him of quackery, soldiers would accuse Him of cowardice, theologians would take Him aside and try to persuade Him of His non-existence.
If Jesus was thirty-two today wed have to end it all. Heretic, fundamentalist, literalist, puritan, pacifist, non-conformist, wed take Him away and quietly end the argument. But the argument would rumble in the ground at the end of three days and would break out and walk around as though death was some bug, saying I am the resurrection and the life
No man cometh to the Father but by me. While the magicians researched new explanations and the semanticists wondered exactly what He meant by I and No man there would be those who stand around amused, asking for something called proof. http://www.rejesus.co.uk/site/module/steve_turners_12_poems/P2/
This is an excellent one. I also first heard it, about seven or eight years ago, from Ravi.
What’s really striking about the fundamentalists who believe this stuff is their vehement denial that it’s a religion.
Wow. I forgot i posted that 9 years ago! Sadly it still applies.
