Wrong Is Never Right - Poem by Bob Gotti

The Bible is clear about right and wrong and wrong is never right,
The two are as different as the light of day and the dark of night.

First, God Himself is Light and in Him there is no darkness at all,
Then man made in God's image slipped into darkness at Adam's fall.

From perfect fellowship with God into the lap of sin's dreaded curse,
Man is not evolving into something better, he's only getting worse.

Paul said that men and impostors will wax worse as we near the end,
And the heart's deceitful above all things and beyond cure my friend.

But Christ came as The Light of the world to offer all men new life,
This life one receives allows them to live above this world's strife.

Christ told His disciples in this world they would have tribulation,
He then said be of good cheer as He overcame the world's degradation.

Christ didn't come into the world to condemn those who were depraved,
But He came as The Light so out of this darkness some may be saved.

Men are not condemned who believed and His Light they have received,
But unbelievers are condemned, loving darkness they remain deceived.

He who believes can not stay in darkness for His Light lives within,
And as we walk in The Light, Christ's blood purifies us from all sin.

We were of the darkness but were saved to live as children of Light,
To live submitting to one another, out of reverence for Jesus Christ.
