God Is Dead - Poem by Bob Gotti

Once a man claimed God was dead, while he, not God, died instead.
God my friend is alive and well, but the fool is bound for eternal Hell.
Filled with an arrogance and pride, that fool has since, eternally died.
And that is the future for all ahead, who today remain spiritually dead.

But today The God who eternally lives, in His Power, to all men gives,
New Life in God’s Son Jesus Christ, so men can now have eternal life.
At the end of our life we won’t die, but be raised up with God on High,
Bound for Eternity with our Lord, to live with Christ Jesus forevermore.

The idea of God dead was conceived, by one mind that was deceived,
By Satan, our God’s eternal enemy, who’s doomed to the fire eternally.
So he blinds the spiritual eyes of men, so they too will be condemned.
Satan uses any means of seduction, to lead men to eternal destruction.

Satan gets men to deny The Truth, through human reason and reproof,
Insisting that only a fool believes, as these men, he eternally deceives.
The entire time knowing my friend, that he could never change his end.
The change which God makes for us, when in Christ we place our trust.

God, who that fool said was dead, allowed His Son to die in our stead,
So that through His bloody sacrifice, we could then enter into Paradise.
And so Believers don’t need to dread, living today or when we’re dead,
For we’ve been given Eternal Life, in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
