The Bible Widely Praised But Seldom Read

 

The Bible, Widely Praised But Seldom Read

 

By Elton Camp

 

Many assert that the Bible is true

While vile hatred is what they spew

 

The version of God they claim to see

At torture rubs his hands with glee

 

It’s to dust that the sinner returns

“No,” they say, “Forever burns!”

 

Genesis uses “day” more than one way

“No, it’s twenty-four hours,” they say

 

“All came into existence in a literal week”

Yet, to be taken seriously such folks seek

 

On God and the Bible they bring contempt

When promoting their views they attempt

 

An incomprehensible triune god they identify

A “mystery,” so to understand don’t even try

 

Their god, a little child will pick to slay

The Bible’s God doesn’t act that way

 

While their god cares a bit about the rest

He loves citizens of their country the best

 

But only if they belong to be proper race

“If not, in our church don’t show your face.”

 

And the god they worship is so petty and lame

He manipulates the outcome of a football game

 

To ignorant fundamentalism, let’s say “Fie!”

The true God isn’t honored by telling a lie

Totally agree what you say in that writing and statement. This is what happen when people criticize the christian principle saying this religion is not right, and that many of the believers are naive. But the true words of Jesus Christ and the bible, never mentions about prosperity or righteousness that's why even god himself criticizes the pharisees, who where world religious leaders during that time period. Personally for me i like to separate the belief in god is different than religion itself. It's really man-made as appose to god invention of making religion. So many people can twist and turn their belief in god and his will, when honestly it's their own make believe idealism, not god. Anyways nice post.
