Borrowed Rage

Why do the heathen rage--
With borrowed moral outrage
Standing on the top rung of a ladder in the air
The height of Babel's Tower, built without foundation

Why do the peoples plot in vain--
The vanity of ethical criticism
Of the Lord and his Anointed Word
Graded by a test key not in possession

Why does the culture sit--
On the lap of the Father to slap his face
Intolerant of his intolerance, infuriated by his wrath
Pharisaical students of a law they have stolen

Why do the kings of the earth set themselves--
Against the Creator's righteous standards
Claiming rights and freedoms
Endowed by their Creator

He who sits in heaven laughs
And holds them in derision
The derision of ironic judgments, poetic justice
Condemned by the mouth that condemns God's condemnation


  1. Then of course there is the 1700 years long history of blood-soaked applied Christian politics as depicted and described here:
    And why not google:
    1. Columbus & Other Cannibals by Jack Forbes
    2. God Is Red & Custer Died For Your Sins by Vine deLoria Jnr
    3. A Criminal History of the Papacy by Tony Bushby
    4. The Vatican in World Poltics
    Meanwhile of course there are now well over 35,000 different and differing Christian denominations, sects and sub-sects, each claiming (in one way or another) to represent THE best or CORRECT form of Christianity (implying that most of the others are wrong or in serious error)

  2. Happiness is the now-and-forever Mystery that IS the Real Heart and the Only Real God of every one.
