The Christian Church is hopelessly divided,
But there is one thing on which they all agree,
That Jesus Christ was the Son of God,
And that he was crucified on the Cross of Calvary.
The Christian Church has been torn assunder,
By those seeking to promote their own point of view,
Christianity is now presented in so many different guises,
It is difficult to decide which one is true.
Anglicans, Roman Catholics, Methodists and Baptists
Presbyterians and the United Reform to name a few,
Pentecostal, Mormons and Seventh Day Adventists,
With Jehovah’s Witnesses presenting a different point of view.
The church spends its time preaching to the converted,
Evangelical and Ecumenical are the buzz words of today,
So much time and effort is spent on organisation,
On important matters it seems they don’t have much to say.
What about the moral dilemmas that the youth of today must face,
How much guidance is the church prepared to give?
If they could get young people to ready the Bible,
They would get a good idea of how they should live.
For the Bible contains the truths that we should know,
Not always in the way we are led to understand,
For man has often provided a new translation of the scriptures,
Which do not always give the message that the authors planned.
The real purpose of the Church is to convince, not to condone,
And to help people to resist the temptations that come along,
There are so many things that we simply should not ignore,
It’s our duty to teach the difference between right and wrong.
As in days of old people should be called to repentance,
Should be made to see the error of their ways,
Be reminded that Christ died for their salvation,
For that is what the Bible clearly says.
That is the message on which the Church is united,
It preaches not only Christ, but Christ crucified,
The message is the key to unlock the mystery,
The importance of the answer cannot be denied.
