Doctrines - Poem by Kaila George

I have fought with myself over this for a very long period of time

My heart bleeds that I must say this

But man's doctrines is what makes this world at war

I have read history about this and it never seems to change

Men believe in their beliefs but at times not the one above

That is why they fight for what they believe and know

And wage wars for eternity that takes so many innocent souls

And those that wear the cloth

At times take it to an extreme

Is it just me, am I making this all up, I only say what I have seen

These wars are living hells

Even though I say this

I still believe in God

Is that a crime on my part to believe in our almighty God?

Yet not attend a church that is lead by the doctrine of men

I am looked upon as a sinner if I don't follow the doctrine of men

Why cannot I be seen as a true believer instead?

I know were my heart belongs in the spiritual realm above

Can you honestly say you feel the same way?

About religion, about our God

I ask not for your forgiveness because I have committed no sin

I merely ask you witness

My soul I give to him

    Man made doctrines do not have much relevance and sticking blindly to it can cause blood shed too! If one can access God without doctrines, who can say it is wrong? Man made doctrines, to some extent, help man to stick together as a united social entity! A weighty theme, deftly handled! ! (Report) Reply
