Found November ’98

 

how insidious that Satan’s attempts to replace God

really are

 

low down

            dirty rotten

                        nasty old

                                    tricks

 

here we stand

upon a ball “poofed” into existence

by the awesome word of God

and Satan tells us:

 

            “why, it’s merely cosmic dust!”

 

above me

blazing jewels adorn the night

flaming galaxies cavorting in the hand of God

and we are told:

 

            “nothing plus nothing equals something”

                        or

            “0 + 0 = ”

 

gazing back in wonder

from whatever mirror we use

we see the amazing creature

God calls creation’s crown

confused

not knowing whether to be revolted

when told we began as bugs

or to be proud

when told we all are gods

 

but we are God’s

whom God’s own Son once died to save (~OR~Christ died to save us)

exit disgust

fade away pride

enter joy and claim our lives

 

even the beasts

God made and proclaimed “Good!”

are given higher honour than is allowed

when called

 

            “alternative offshoots of a common ancestry”

 

well I don’t care

how sneaky that demon tries to get

he won’t fool me

I am God’s

 

by right of manufacture

by right of maintaining

by right of Jesus’ blood

 

He didn’t die to save no whale

He died for me

 

Lies,

however persuasive or pervasive

cannot

in all of time

change truth
