Jesus, Praise Or Power And Profit - Poem by brian chacon
Why is it that he is used like a tool or a trade?
Understood that we may use his name in anger,
Or may say his name out of text.
Yet too many people use him for there agenda
Preach his word of what he wants, or
At least what they think he wants.
Many say without proof or placement.
Some with a copy of text and some
With just loud speech and hand power.
I have nothing against religion or
Praising the one who created us.
I can’t stand those who stand on their own
Poppet or soapbox telling others what
My belief is mine and others beliefs are theirs
Yet there are some who feel that you
Should believe what they believe or what
They feel you should believe.
If you don’t you will never reach heaven
Or the spirit of the heavens will turn
His back on you.
Jesus is our savior not our fool!
No one has a right to make him their own
Spokesmen or personal moneymaker.
It’s not right to use him for personal gain.
Yet many do, instead of telling his word
They preach there own word in his name.
Not all are man or woman of the cloth
Some are so called friends or extended family.
Others are those who never had power
Or may have been treated badly.
And some need to be above all others.
I’m not out for a crusade or to string anyone,
I just would like to remind everyone.
He died for our sins and every time we
Sin, he gives us another chance to do better.
To work our way into his waiting arms.
