Moral Plight - Poem by Bob Gotti

Men are facing a moral plight, confronted by the deeds of night,
Throughout the land, even by us, who in God have put their trust.
We’re far beyond a moral decline, as Satan attempts to redefine,
Men’s moral attitudes and ways, while he darkens our final days.

Suggesting moral openness, in forsaking God’s Righteousness,
Counterfeiting things that are right, with his tainted spiritual light,
When they are not right at all, but the sin created by Adam’s fall,
Sin Satan continues to replicate, so all deception will perpetuate.

Deceiving multitudes every day, to leave Christ’s untainted way,
The only way that leads to life, away from all that immoral strife.
Amorality is all that’s preached, while closed hearts are reached,
A faith to include everyone, who stands opposed to God’s Son.

Some suggest, there is no sin, and God, in all things, lies within,
And that the Cross of Calvary, by us, is preached unnecessarily.
For this Truth of God they despise, believing man alone is wise,
And that none are spiritually lost, so want to rid us of the Cross.

Without the Cross and its Truth, men think they’ll see no reproof,
From the God over all Eternity, as they continue living immorally,
But, as their life gets darker friend, that darkness will see an end,
As it is exposed by The Light, when Jesus makes all things right.
