What’s this story circulating?
Ugly gossip’s reached my ear!
Church is meant to worship Jesus…
I won’t bow to what I hear!
I absolutely stand appalled
Someone dares to criticize
Or point fingers at the pulpit…
More of Satan’s drummed up lies?
If attendance means alliance
To simply open doors of doubt
Take your disputes and division
And kindly make your way on out
The church is not in need of critics
Negativism has no grounds
I am not one for repeating
These ugly rumors making rounds
They have made their way to my house
And surely aren’t welcome here.
So unfounded and unscriptural…
Things are not as they appear.
Things are blown out of proportion
Doesn’t gossip work that way?
I believe some loose-lipped people
Should fall on their knees to pray.
To repent and ask forgiveness
For the disrespect they’ve shown.
God says “Touch not my anointed”
He has made His message known.
Inclined to shoot God’s messenger?
You’re very welcome to the shot.
But I must do what I must do
And I cannot be what I am not.
The church makes up a living body…
Jesus Christ is still the head.
The gates of hell will never halt her…
Because her message isn’t dead!!!
No, you’ll never find perfection
In any building you attend.
But if the Christ is lifted up,
Just what is your gripe, my friend?

"You should know how to behave in the
household of God, which is the church of the living
God, the pillar and foundation of truth."
1 Timothy 3:15
And I say also unto thee, that 'thou art Peter,
and upon this rock I will build my Church,
and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.'
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven.
and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth
shall be bound in heaven, and whatever thou shalt loose on earth
shall be loosed in heaven.
Matthew 16:18-19 (King James Version)
Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my
prophets no harm.
King James Version (KJV)
