–what follows is a lyrical message. An examination of the world through song and thought.–

“I’m sick of all your rules. They’re so man-made. You treat them all like fools, you put my name to shame. I’m everything your not. I give them love. My ways you have forgot, you put yourselves above.”

As a group, the modern church is so engraned with rules and regulations that what was once a loving relationship is now a religion and dictatorship. “You must do this, you must be this way and you must do what we say” is the mantra of the modern church. Christ came into this world not with a condeming bang, but with a quiet whisper.  He grew in love and lived in love. He accepted and helped. He did not push people away because of their faults, rather he drew them closer in spite of those faults.

“Ill testify, its time to see religion die. The truth can’t lie, its time to see religion die.who cares who’s right, its time to see religion die. Ill crush the fight, its time to see religion die.”

I have spoken out adamantly, time and again about my distain for religion. Religion is not what christ taught. Religion is rules and regulations. Its what the pharasees and pious leaders of the day reveled in. They made the rules and enforced them in a iron fist mentality. there are still groups that do this today. It is time for religion to be abolished. Rules such as those held by hardcore religions have no place in what should be a loving relationship.

“The church is not inside your building walls. On sundays you all hide, while the world just falls. Now go into the world and destroy hell. You have authority, use it for the kill.”

Modern church has a faulty view of what fellowship means. Christ did not build churches or even command his followers to. He stood in open fields and hilltops and spoke about truths and love. Anyone was welcome. Young, old, rich or poor. Gay or straight. Man or woman. All christ asked is that they paid attention to his words. He never condemed them. The only time he went into a church to teach was when he had a message for the pharasees. Christ instructed his followers, rather to go into the world and teach to everyone. To undermind the devil at every point on the globe. Now, if you have a building for services, cool. But this doesnot make you the church or a church. David koresh had “a church”, but that didn’t make him a church.

Children come away with me. I want you all to be mine. I am taking back what’s mine and you’ve killed too much time with pointing all your fingers at your kids, that’s why they’re lost. Try to look deep in their eyes. You will see suicide. Blame it on yourself because no else will pay you price.”

We have wasted time and energy pointing out faults I each other and putting ourselves up on pedistals. There is a whole generation that has been taught that they are a waste. The don’t follow the rules of religion. The have peircings and tattoos and listen to metal. They accept people for who they are and love unconditionally. They are gay and straight and don’t hate others because they are. They know that no matter your choice of lifestyle or your skintone, you are loved. They also have learned that this is concidered wrong and they have a deep conflict. The generations before them have pounded rules into their heads. Rules that are faulty. As a result, life becomes hard to understand. This opens up the door for doubt and self loathing. We MUST end this cycle.

“Do not be afraid. Religion is manmade. Everything is ok. The rules have just been changed.”

Now…go live, go love and be truely christlike.

A preacher shuns his brother, because his brides a different color. This is not acceptable-his papa taught him so. It was love that he’d been preaching, but this was over reaching. The boundries streaching further than his heart would choose to go.

Like an angel with no wings. Like a kingdom with no kings.

Mom and dad are fighting, as rosie lies there crying. Once again she’s overheard regrets of their mistake. With christmas bells ringing, little rosie leaves them grieving. The gift she’d give her family would be the pills she takes.

Like a inconvenient child. She wasn’t worth their while.

What have we become? A self indulgent people. Tell me where are the rightous ones? In a world degenerated, what have we become?

Speak your mind, look out for yourself. The answer to it all is a life of wealth. Grab all you can, cuz you just live once. You have the right to do whatever you want. Don’t worry bout others or where you came from. It ain’t what you were, its what you have become.

WHAT ABOUT LOVE? WHAT ABOUT GOD? WHAT HOLINESS? WHAT ABOUT MERCY, COMPASSION AND SELFLESSNESS?

What have we become? Have we come undone?

Happy Valentines Day

Father of light (a short story)

As he opened his eyes he realized he was dead. He turned and saw the doctors as they pronounced him. He felt a hand on his shoulder. He turned and saw a being of light. 

“It is time, my son.” It said.
He took one last look at his body and turned toward the being.
“Lead the way.” He replied.

Before his eyes a tunnel appeared and the being led him into it. They exited into a place of bright light. Brighter than he expected it to be. The being turned to him.

“This place is very much a state of mind. Its all in how you see it.” It said, as if it had read his mind.

In an instant he realized that he was standing in a beautiful housing community. Mansions and castles lined the perfect pristine roads.

“This is everything I imagined.” He whispered. The being smiled. “Would you like a tour?” It asked. “Absolutely!” He replied.

They began to walk along the road. The being motioned to a large villa. “That is where the elightened L Ron Hubbard lives.” He was taken slightly aback. The leader of another religion. Here. Maybe there was room for everyone.

As they kept walking, it pointed more and more places out. “That’s Linda Lovelaces penthouse…the Gotti mansion…” he was about to ask for an explanation when they stood before a beautiful side street.

“What….is this place?” He asked. The being smiled. “We call cathedral square.” It motioned to a large church and said “that’s the eternal home of the Plainsburough Baptist Church.” Now he was confused. “What is that one?” He asked, pointing to another church. “That’s the Eternal Branch Davidian.” Now he was thouroghly confused. Before he could ask the being motioned to to a fantastic castle. “This, my son, if yours.” His jaw dropped. It was everything he dreamed of. His eyes moved to his nearest neighbors house.

It was a gold covered cave. “What is that!?” He exclamed. “That,” said the being “is the home home of one of our favorite members. As if on cue the inhabitant walked out. He almost fainted when he recognized the man. “Good afternoon, Mr. Bin-laden.” The being said. “What is the meaning of this!” He cried out.

As the being turned, all the illusion melted away. He realized he stood before a hidious disfigured being. It grinned “you didn’t think that a shooting spree in a elemntary school would get you anywhere else, did you?” It laughed.
