 Poem from a 15-year-old American

Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.

If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the state.

We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
It's "inappropriate" to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such "judgments" do not belong.

We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.

It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!

 Re: Poem from a 15-year-old American

That's quite a poem, and so true.

Isaiah 59v15, 'So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey, then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice.'

Man's hatred of God has long sin come out of the closet and is getting so physical here in the west, and yet, Christians seem so tired of fighting.

Those who even see the Christian life as something worth fighting for that is.

Put on the whole armour of God...

What do we need armour for?

God bless.
