WHERE IT BEGINS

WHERE IT BEGINS

The Bible’s Genesis 1:1,

Tells how this world begun…

Word of God

And the Garden He trod,

Are not stories, human-spun.

Believe in the Pre-Deluge,

Genesis 1:1 becomes huge…

Faulter here

And faith won’t be there,

By faith you must choose.

Either the thing’s true,

Or liars have conquered you…

We cannot choose

Which parts to lose,

Disagree at this point and we’re through!

–Jonathan Caswell

BANANA SNACK THEOLOGY

BANANA SNACK THEOLOGY

Jesus and His friends in the boat,

They yelled and He kept it afloat…

He took their fear

Away and skies cleared,

So the kids love the banana snack boat!

On the water–itΒ is watered down–

No wonder no kids stay around…

The power of God

Ignored as odd,

The facts of the story–drowned.

Why not show that Jesus is King,

Creator, controls everything…

We think of ourselves

Putting faith on shelves,

And learning ’bout God not a thing!

One point of the story is trust,

Not how a banana is trussed…

Fear in your day,

Sometimes is okay…

Especially if with danger you’ve brushed.

These lessons oversimplified,

Are why many parents have cried…

As to why their kids

Put Christ on the skids

Preferring in hell to die!

–Jonathan Caswell

Developed from a broadcast of NO COMPROMISE RADIO…on WVNE, 760 AM, 3:30pm to 4:00 pm, today, 5/1/14…concerning an over-simplified lesson of Jesus calming the sea…Mark 4:35-41…and how to better approach the issue.

THE MAILMAN NOTICED

THE MAILMAN NOTICED

The Thursday mailman took stock

Of our increasing flock…

Of summering geese

In their love feast,

An idea that does not shock.
