The Beautiful Side of Ugly

 
Like a lamb led to the slaughter…
Like a moth drawn to the flame…
Some will surely be the victims
Of those who play religious games.

 
Pretense has long been practiced…
Phonies well versed in The Book…
Plan seduction with the Scriptures
For those who leap before they look.

 
With diplomas in deception
The Golden Rule does not apply…
They build fences of false teaching
To enclose folks in a lie.

 
Who can understand the reasons?
Why use Jesus as the bait?
Or the Bible as a backer
To mar and manipulate?

 
Don’t they know the consequences?
Are their consciences so seared
That they disregard what’s holy…
 Don’t expect God to be feared?

 
God is love and He’s forgiving
But He is never to be mocked…
 Those who play this game will answer
When their earthly ship has docked.

 
When one claims to be a Christian
Certain standards must be met.
 Those who sow seeds of dishonor
Are surely ripe to reap regret.

 
There will come a day of judgment
A day of wrath or of reward
Are we ready for that moment
When we stand before the Lord?

 
Satan is such a deceiver
 Evil schemes bring him delight.
Father, please grant us discernment
Of Angels who appear as Light.

~~Dedicated to Terry~~
(a warrior for the faith)  


Galatians 6:7-8
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked;
 for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.
  For the one who sows to his own flesh
 will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one
 who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life
 
2 Corinthians 11:12-14

But what I am doing I will continue to do,
 so that I may cut off opportunity from those
 who desire an opportunity to be regarded
 just as we are in the matter about which
 they are boasting.  For such are false apostles,
 deceitful workers, disguising themselves
 as apostles of Christ.  No wonder,
 for even Satan disguises himself as an
angel of light.


Hebrews 10:13
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God
