Sonnet on Unloving Churches

Sonnet on Unloving Churches

A Poem by John Carver


The will of Christ my Father and Savior of us all
Is to test those who come to our churches by plan
And teach some strange teaching other than from Christ's call
Rejecting them as you have judged and then to ban
Be careful not to abandon the love you had at first
And hate the works of those so bad that Christ even hates
For they're not only bad, in fact they're the worst
It is good that should you find out don't mention such fates
So do what he said and be patient and endure
For the one he loves the other he hates all the more
Since they are from the devils' pack for sure
For once it was common but now it's rare as before
But he who does not love his brother now
Has died to Christ and did not love Jesus' vow!
