LIVING STUMBLING BLOCKS

LIVING STUMBLING BLOCKS

(Reference: 1st Timothy 1: 3-7)

(Do you notice where the idea of “stumbling blocks” are mentioned?)

Dedicated disciples are hated,

They insist others educated…

Be allowed to choose

‘Tween theologies loose

And consistent believe indicated.

Arguments quote Bible verses.

Ignoring any misuse curses…

Thinking that they

Can make their way,

Even if their logic reverses.

God will not be mocked,

Disobedient ones are chalked…

Unless repented

Confessed and relented,

Their doom is eventually marked.

God didn’t provide His plan

To have it monkeyed by man….

In the Garden

Satan’s sparring

Led to an eviction demand!

Most deny original sin,

They insist with tears and grins…

That humans are GOOD–

No loving God would

Inflict His world to be  grim.

The reason it’s grim–concede–

Is due to human greed…

To be gods

At all odds,

Who planted then sinful seed!

I’m taking by faith the Bible,

Not calling  misunderstood parts “libel”…

I won’t pick and choose

(I don’t want to lose}

It is my soul’s survival.

If some wish to disagree,

That is okay with me…

Don’t get in the way

Of another today

Who may wish the Lord’s guarantee!

(Romans 14:13; 2nd Corinthians 6: 2-thro’ 6)

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
