The vain would ridicule,

The Bible and its readers to fool…

Point to English faults

And opening vaults,

From where heresy ruled.

Some claim that change in one word,

Makes the whole thing look absurd…

They refuse to see

Beyond lunacy,

That their reasoning has erred!

Fanatics may say,

Word-for-word is the way…

It aught be

For eternity,

But these folks stray!

A point gotten across

Needs be told with minimal lost…

Human minds

Vary in kinds

Of understanding if wires cross!

Many versions, translations,

Make clear God implications…

Whomever receives

And believes,

Receives the best of salvations!

In every language and tongue

The work Of God has begun…

Blocked minds try

To deny,

Salvation is for everyone.

(Who is willing to come!)

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?.
