Romans 1:18-3
God’s Wrath Against Sinful Humanity
19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

After this passage of Scripture, I referrd them to Psalms 19

I got a call from an anonymous callbooth yesterday.
"Where have you gone?", she said.
I said I had deeds to pay.

My rose colored complexion really shows;
Along with a broken nose
That really shows how it goes.

Unless it goes away
I'll never fade again
And although I will crawl
I shall breathe until I die
When it all goes full circle
I'll be waiting for you
Like what was once before.

The orchestra will fall
From the incompetent conductor;
I know it will be all numb later
But I'll save it for the haters
They'll all follow the Romans
And so shall I.
We'll drink our sorrows away.

New York is burning tonight,
It takes me away with fright.
But we'll now dance right.

Now come on, why won't you?
We'll go through.
There'll be time to sew.

And unless it goes away
I'll fade again
Although I will walk
I shall blink until I bleed
When it all dies away
I'm going to forget you
Like what will be in the next time.

The band will rise up
And I'll be the spotlight
I know it's going to flow tonight;
I'll lose my lovers
But at least I won't be like the Romans
They won't be like you.
Tonight, our problems will go away.

i dont want to be part of this.
i dont want to be part of the destruction of myself.
i dont want to be one of them.
i dont want to be me.
i want to be him.
Romans 12:2 yall. amazing verse. Do not conform any longer to the world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-his good, pleasing, and perfect will.
Like a hockey team,
accomplishing the American dream.

Like Napoleon,
giving a speech to defeat the Mongolian.

Like a forgotten man's byname,
stumbling aimlessly when it's always been within his brain.

Like a relentless cricket's chirp,
always ready to exhibit pounding energy without limit.

Seize the day, today,
for yesterday cannot be replayed.

In my dreams, there is a new religion,
A tingle of life for all the pigeons,
It was named the "Holy Romans",
Sparkling Planet Earth's humans,
All  the plebs happy and smiling,
The "Holy Romans" is beguiling,
Peace, Kindness, all that's good,
One global worldwide brotherhood,
Maybe dreams come true, I say,
Let's have a "Holy Romans" day!
Feedback welcome.

I’ve been given a book, a Book of Instruction,
A book of what’s right and what’s wrong.
But when I am nudged towards this path of perfection,
I turn the other direction.

If I were not told of the wrong thing to do,
I would never think to even do it.
But because of my sin and my enmity of the true,
My promises to do right, simply fall through.

This book gave the path to life,
But all my sin saw was a chance.
A chance to bring death like a cutting knife,
To make me live through the strife.

Sin go away!
Leave me be!
No matter how much I wish to follow whatever the LORD may say,
You’re right there, to keep my decisions at bay.

I leave Sunday morning on fire for the LORD,
But the week goes on,
And not once have I gone and explored,
The opportunities the LORD for me has stored.

It is not who I who act, but the sin that lives within me.
But when does that sin become who I am?
When does my selfish ambition become not an entity,
But a part of the person I am to be?

What a wretched man I remain,
Only lukewarm: saying not acting, thinking not doing.
I want to act but the sin restrains.
Who can cleanse my countless stains?

Only Jesus

Thank you LORD Jesus, for loving me nonetheless,
For delivering me from death more times than I can comprehend.
Your Book of Instruction does not just judge and assess,
It is the Book of Life, made to bless.
A poem on Romans 7, one of my favorite chapters in the Bible.

So what is the trend this year?
Something immodest, probably
Wearing no clothes used to be a nightmare
But now it's fashion
Something immodest, probably
Donned by young girls
But now it's fashion
To be seen as tempting
Donned by young girls
I see temptation everywhere
To be seen as tempting
Is the goal
I see temptation everywhere
*** *** ***
Is the goal
That's all life is about, right?
*** *** ***
Turning up and turning on
That's all life is about, right?
Making a statement
Turning up and turning on
Is what culture aims to do
Making a statement
People merely zombies
Is what culture aims to do
What tears it apart?
People merely zombies
Following the trend sheep
What tears it apart?
That one person who thinks differently
Following the trend sheep
Is not for them
That one person who thinks differently
Realizes immodesty
It's not for them
It tears our culture apart
Realizes immodesty
Got us here to begin with
It's not for them
And everyone else
Got us here to begin with
A higher power guides them
And everyone else
Into making the right choice
A higher power guides them
Listen closely
Into making the right choice
You can be saved
Listen closely
Wearing no clothes used to be a nightmare
You can be saved
So what's the trend this year?
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
- Romans 12:2

If God is for us,
Who can be against us?
