 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

What advantage has the Jew?
Value of circumcision;
A rationale to construe,
For a man to envision.
I guess much in every way,
For the Jews able to trust;
And to stop going astray,
In following greed and lust.
What if some did not believe?
Faithfulness to nullify;
No salvation to receive,
Having a faith to defy.
God forbid, let God be true,
Though everyone a liar;
That His judgement shall be due,
Casting them in the fire.
Those that might be justified,
Overcome when you are judged;
With faith in the crucified,
And who has never begrudged.
Unrighteousness serves to show,
The righteousness of the Lord;
To inflict a wrath will know,
That God never be ignored.
For how could God judge the earth,
By no means, the Lord forbid;
Condemning each one at birth,
Before any wrongs they did.
If the truth of God a lie,
Abounds His glory in truth;
Judge me a sinner to die,
For being rude and uncouth.
Why not let us do evil,
Where the outcome becomes good;
Damnation from the devil,
Assures forgiveness that could.
