Pride

 

I sat in prayer as you spoke

begging God to let His truth speak loudly

imploring Him that His people would see through

your deception

sweet words denying truth, bolstering confidence

in mannish wisdom

“I make my living studying rocks”

you said

implying a wisdom greater than God’s own

Who those rocks created

I prayed that God would forgive you

and save those hearing your selfish lies

never have I so badly wanted to hit a man

 

I sat in prayer as you spoke

begging God to let His truth speak loudly

overwhelming the words so recently spoken

God’s truth

alone the rock upon which we may build our lives

in Godly fear

to study and rely for life on Him

your words

eloquent yet firm in defence of the truth

Who our lives upholds

I prayed that God would support you

and save those lost to demon’s lies

never have I so badly wanted to hug a man

 

Dr. John MacKay came to our church today and

presented two lessons. In the evening lesson a time

for questions was given and one man stood to claim

that his knowledge in geology gave credit to God for

His creation but to man for the understanding of time.

 

Even within sacred precincts the enemy has his voice.
