A Poem ... From God

A Poem ... From God

A Poem by Creepy Swine Guy
"

Do you ever wonder if God gets tired of being the patsy for wars? Do not take this as an excuse to attack the Muslin faith. I refer to ANYONE who have used God as an excuse for their violence.

"

 

Free will was a gift

To mankind you see.

So please don't attribute

Your violence to me.

 

Inquisition, your way

Of stealing free will.

Your woeful excuse

To pillage and kill.

 

Jihad, you allege,

Is my holy war.

I demand that you not

Blame me any more.

 

I'm the biggest accomplice

To the killing it seems.

But I have no part

In your murderous schemes.

 

So stop blaming me

For humanity's strife

I've never asked you

For your fellow man's life.

A beautiful way to describe how God must be feeling. Its true, he never wanted any of the suffering or violence that the world is filled with today. And yet mankind continues to blame Him for it. "God wanted another angel" They tell you. That isn't what God wanted. God wants his original purpose to be fulfilled, for us all to live forever in a paradise. For people to blame God is a sad excuse for their own imperfections. Great topic, beautiful write.

Great observations. I recently read a book which discussed this very issue. I quote from the book "Searching for God Knows What" by Donald Miller (Thomas Nelson Press 2004):
"War rhetoric against people is not the methodology, not the sort of communication that came out of the mouth of Jesus or the mouths of any of His followers.......I can't say this clearly enough: IF we are preaching morality without Christ, and using war rhetoric to communicate a battle mentality, we are fighting on Satan's side. This battle we are in is a battle against the principalities of darkness, not against people who are different from us. IN war, you shoot the enemy, not the hostage."
Indeed, I do not think God is pleased to be the perceived initiator of these so-called Holy Wars. Well written!

Bravo! Our agency is our greatest gift. And what we do with it we must accept responsibility for. There is no blame to be placed on our heavenly father for our wrong doings. He gave us free will and a list of commandment to guide us to do what is right. People are so easy to use God as a scape-goat b/c he is abstract in a sense that their are different beliefs. I love this piece b/c it captures the way in which society fails to take credit for its crimes and is quick to take our greatest gifts and blame God for them and our actions. If I had to change something it should be the last line, b/c biblically speaking people have been commanded to kill before. I mean look at the story of Noah's arch. But other than that great write.

This is profoundly well said!

We were given the gift of a brain and choice (I'm not sure by whom, but that's another topic........)

What we've done with those gifts we "own" - the good and the bad.

I find this invigorating. It is rare to find someone who writes something that I can totally relate to on this level. Whether character or insight, you hit the nail on the head for me.

Cold hard truth spoken right here. This needs to be posted on a billboard. Your choice of words and the flow is perfect! Well done!

This is a heartfelt and sadly true piece. Some of us try to use the words for the good of the human race. Very nicely put, as always.
