“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.”

Who is center?

If the preacher is the “center” of attraction – you have a show.

If God is the “center” of Attraction – you have a Worship Service.

Many a soul has started down God’s road,

After knowing the joy of a lifted load.

They had a smile only heaven could paint,

But, oh, something changed; they grew faint.

What caused them to turn from the pierced side?

What renewed their carnal, controlling pride?

Only the judgment will truly, fully reveal

Why they lost out in happy, holy zeal.

Attitudes mean so much in soul and mind,

Ones they grew up with or later find.

Negative attitudes toward a certain stand,

Acceptance of things on the left hand.

Education has often had pulled men down,

They hated to have the professor’s bad frown,

They wanted to be thought of as quite smart,

Chose secular training, let Christ depart.

Illusions have caused backsliding as well,

Illusions aren’t real – but they seem to tell    

A truth when they are, sadly, a stinking lie,

Some believe illusions and inwardly die. (part of larger poem)

There is no “u” in the word “past” – you weren’t there before birth.

Nor is there a “u” in the word “present” – you & I aren’t as important as we’re tempted to think we are.

There are two “u’s” “future” – a “u” for you who read, a “u” for he who writes – we’ll all be there.
