Bible Thumpers Poem by Greg Oosterhouse

Bible Thumpers



There is a certain crowd,
Who live for the Lord and show it.
To others, they proclaim it loud.
The Word to all people, they intend to bestow it.

They are on the prowl,
Watching others and how they live.
Some are as wise as an owl,
And some, their tolerance they need to give.

If they observe someone comitting ill,
They thump their Bible and quote scripture.
They want all people to obey God's will.
They are a pain in the neck to most, that's for sure.

It is good that they stand up for the Word,
God needs all the people He can get.
It is good to make the Good News heard,
For more and more people can be saved yet.

But the thumpers better take care
That they are not blind to their own faults.
Of judging others they better beware,
For their shortcomings are not locked in bank vaults.

Before correcting others, first examine yourself.
Is your rap sheet filled to capacity?
If so, ask the Lord to put your sins on a shelf.
Then and only then can you rightly lead others to a blissful eternity!
