THE PROBLEMATIC BIBLE

by Peter Fraser

The world has many problems we know this for a fact,
They're problems we've created by our ways to be exact.
But by far the largest problem those on Earth will face today,
Is a book that's called The Bible, and the message it conveys.

Now I'm just going to say it, I'm afraid I can't be gentle,
Because if you're going to spread the Word, you've got to show some mettle.
The post modern doctrine of the world says that truth does not exist,
So a book that's full of truth drives them all around the twist.

Do not be HOMOSEXUAL, don't tell LIES or FORNICATE,
Do not SLANDER, CURSE or GOSSIP, be COVETOUS or HATE.
Do not commit ADULTERY, be FRAUDULENT or DOUBLE MINDED,
Avoid BLASPHEMY, RAPE, MURDER and being SPIRITUALLY BLINDED.

Take RESPONSIBILITY for your deeds and don't be tolerant of SIN,
Don't partake in IDOLATRY throw RELIGION in the bin.
Don't just live to please your FLESH, living a Dog's life,
Don't be DECEIVED by FALSE DOCTRINE, avoid the butcher's knife.

For a world that creates its own truth, this is a real slap in the face,
The things that everyone wants to do are considered a disgrace.
They don't want to be reminded that the things they do are wrong,
Just go through life and please yourself make it your Swan Song.

That's why the Bible's not popular, not politically correct,
Its message is for everyone, poignant and direct.
There's no way around it and it won't be watered down,
You're either headed down to hell, or going to wear an eternal crown.

So pardon me if my Bible offends you to the core,
You can call me intolerant, bible-thumper or a bore.
But I'm just trying to help you by showing an alternative,
The choice is yours to make, will you choose freedom or be a captive?

AUTHORS NOTE:
Sums up modern society doesn't it! It can be terribly frustrating when those faced with the truth choose ignorance so as to avoid something as trivial as a lifestyle change. But you know what, it was no different 2000 years ago when Jesus walked among us and unless the Lord comes back beforehand, it will be the same in 2000 years time! Those who have an ear to hear WILL HEAR and those who don't….won't. Rejoice in the fact that no matter how bad it seems to us, God is in control of everything.
