A Doubting Thomas - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

To see is to believe,
Is what most conceive!
It now become a standard,
For people who are on guard.

Faith is a blind conviction,
It is the Christian's adulation.
A guide for acting what is right,
Deferring the wrong from sight.

Yet there are many among us,
Acting like the doubting Thomas!
Who ask for proof to substantiate?
For things we think could satiate.

Professed believers though religious,
Most are quite reluctantly ambiguous.
Chanting the name Jesus the Savior,
But possess weak spiritual candor.

Man is created in God's image,
Just right that we pay Him homage.
Either one is a freethinker or religious,
Must not become Thomas the suspicious!
