A CULTURAL GOSPEL
(opinion, based upon church experience and church history)
When I was young, history,
Was very interesting to me…
My church went “social”
Losing its focal
Point as its doctrine went weak.
During my years as a youth,
The church focus went uncouth….
Insurgents to please,
While downplaying Gospel truth.
This “Liberation Gospel” style,
Took over Christ’s message a while…
In some churches still
They market this swill,
Repackaged for a new kind of trial.
Whereas Christ died to pay our sin debt
And resurrected as the new life we’ll get…
In “Liberation” He’s martyred
In revolutionary ardor,
And the idea of sin to forgive—Nyet!
My denomination remains nameless
And in some dark corners shameless….
Promotion was made
Of a “Gaia” god-maid,
Whose adherents used deception to “tame” us.
It was a major denomination,
Under an umbrella organization….
Whose leadership went slack
In ways hard to track,
But following political beliefs of the nation!
The Gospel being hijacked,
When the Bible as truth is attacked…
The church tries to gloss
Over the cross,
And the pendulum has to swing back.
(For time is short!)
