The Truth Will Set You Free If You Let It. - Poem by David McCannon

The era of Humanistic Psychology is their belief in the goodness of man.

God says; No one is good. All have failed to meet my standards.

Your best effect to live my way is like dirty rags.

Yes, I sent my Son to fulfill my Law, not to destroy.

But let me make one thing clear.

My Law is a school master that leads you to me.

Do not try to earn my righteousness simple by keeping my law.

I tell you the truth that your righteousness must exceed the Pharisees.

They tell you not to commit adultery.

I tell you if you even look upon a woman with lust in your heart, you are guilty already.

They tell you do not murder.

If you are angry with your brother, or sister without a cause, you are in danger of hell fire.

The price of you sin is death which my Son paid with His Life.

I offer salvation to those who believe but it with cost you your rights.

For you are no longer your own; you were bought with a price.

Take up your Cross and follow.

I am the author of salvation to those who obey my commands.

People will know the truth about me by the works I produce in your life.

Marvel not when I say faith without works is dead.

You are to be my Disciple and your job is to tell others about me, and teach them my ways.

Come to me if you need rest, for my work is easy.

The world hated me, and because of this they will hate you.

You will be tempted and persecuted, but I promise it will not be more than you can bear.

Love others like you love yourself.

Love your enemies.

Be good to those who do evil to you.

This may sound impossible but you will be able to do all things in Me.

With a faith a size of a mustard seed, you will be able to move mountains.

Do you believe says; Jesus?

I am the way!
