Religious Packages - Poem by Njousi Abang

In the beginning was the word
The word was made flesh
And it dwells amongst us
So also does it hold
That Christ Emmanuel
Which means God is with us,
Was is and will always be
Christ is the same
Yesterday today and tomorrow
So also was the Spirit of God
Which roamed the universe
The Spirit was Truth, Universal Truth,
That permeates all things and people;
God the father, God the son
And God the Holy Spirit
God is goodness all the time
For all people everywhere
God is omnipotent, omniscient
And omnipresent

Make no pretence
Do not confiscate God
Do not make Him your God
And exclude others from Him
Neither must you arrogate
To yourself the right to know Him better
And Pontificate and intercede for others.
Rather just teach them to know God better
And serve Him properly as He dictates,
By doing His will which is good
For all the people all the time and everywhere

God is with us in perpetuity
Abangkimbong, the saviour of all
Irrespective of colour, race, age,
Region or religion you should
Believe in the supreme God
Whatever you perceive Him to be
And keep His commandments
Do not receive God in a Parcel
God is over and above human reasoning
He can't just fit any human vessel
The world is full of conflict
And divisions everywhere
The source of all these lies in religious packages
Which deliver God in various parcels
Like the blind men of Hindustan
Who attempted to define an elephant
And each approached it from his perspective
However wrong it was
They defended it to the last
