Round and round it goes. Where it stops nobody knows. This carousel continues to spin yet I effectively offers little fulfillment of divine order, and purpose.
Jump, dance, and twirl after you lie, steal, cheat, and deceive.
Maybe things have changed. Maybe humility has won, and no longer does pride reign. Sadly this is more than likely not the case or certain restrictions would be lifted. The abomination would no longer need t be fed, and truest of unifying could indeed take place.
Still, the show must go on. We had so many people. We have gifting. Hurry and step right up to see the miraculous, the signs, and wonders. Admission is of no monetary value.
It is simply paid by your blind obedience, absolute submission, and complete loyalty to the cause.
I watch you and wonder what is the point of it all? Is this really a biblically accurate way of doing this so called “church” thing?
Are we really so focused on the lights, sound, presentation, and theme that we neglect the truest of all edicts.
I thought this was about loving God and loving people. I thought our identity was in Christ and not some superfluous uber religious term. I thought we were suppose to have the mind of Christ, be a servant to all, surrender privileges, and endeavor for the unity of the brethren.
I guess I was wrong. Yet the show must go on. We must have another speaker, another program, another fund raiser, and another performance. We must involve ourselves in ecclesiastical entertainment and call it genuine praise and worship.
Is that really what it all boils down to? Money, fame, and pleasure?
If I didn’t know better I would cash in my chips and check out of this game. I would walk away from the whole lot of it.
Yet Jesus. The same yesterday, today, and forever.
His nature is never corrupted by those who misuse his giftings for their own personal gratification and advancement.
Is this really what it was supposed to become?
