Just last week I was nominated for the Beautiful Bloggers Award, and I have not responded to it yet, but I have something to do first. It seems my Poems were the main reason for the award. I only have put a few up, and they have mostly gone unnoticed for a long time now, hidden away under that “The Poet” button in header bar. However, since they have triggered this award, I decided I should do a little more with the poetry, and see what happens? So…
I just wrote a new poem and the reason for this poem is another debate I found myself involved in, which a lot of it can be read in the comments section of the article: “Spending Problem?” I knew from the beginning where the debate would end up, but we are still called to speak our Lord’s message whether received or not, and so I did. But like the Apostle Paul instructed, do not become “entangled” in endless debates. I almost left the discussion several times, but then would feel led to respond again. But now, with this poem, I do end.
“The Eternal Debate”
Round and round we go, where we stop I already know; we will stop at Words and Faith.
Your faith, my faith, whose is true?
That is left for us to choose.
“Evidence” demanding verdict! For that is all we really have.
Your proof, my proof; round and round we go.
Sad thing is, neither is “proof”, you know.
A book of witnesses, for which they died; that speaks a lot to me.
First-hand accounts, worthy of any court, but you’re not satisfied.
You choose to believe they all lied.
You come back with evolution! Science has proven, so you say!
You start your case with a lie? Now I’m not satisfied.
Your theory, my theory; we go round and round.
Do not entangle endless debates, the Apostle Paul advised.
Preach the Gospel, some will come, others will deny.
It’s not up to you or I.
For when all is said and done, we come back to Words and Faith.
We are the same, creatures of what we “believe”.
Created in His image, more evidence that I see!
Science not proven is just a religion, belief, a chosen faith.
Your preachers, my preachers; round and round we go.
Where we stop, I already know.
God created ALL with Words and Faith, or so we’re told.
One more exhibit added to the case!
Try as you might, all I hear from you is more Words and Faith!
We are the same, you and I, creatures drawn to faith.
As the One who created, so the creation, it would seem.
Of course, of this, you vehemently deny!
What makes you sure of what you cannot prove? Again, we are the same, I say.
As the One who created, so the creation, unable to escape.
We always stop at Words and Faith.
Round and round we go…
Where we stop I already know…
We are “stuck” in a creation of Words and Faith.
How cool is that!!!
