Truth or Consequences
by Russ Knight
TIMES they are changing so the liberals say,
What used to be wicked is righteous today.
What used to be right is now terribly wrong,
Says Borg, Funk, and Crossan, and John Shelby Spong.
With a bag full of marbles they've done us a favor,
They've done away with mans' need of a Savior.
Jesus wasn't Messiah, God come in the flesh,
Just a sage or a wiseman, a prophet at best.
Eat drink and be merry, there's no need to repent,
And hey! The "gay" lifestyle, it's heaven sent.
Sprague, Talbert, and Dell, are the Methodist version,
Apostates them all, preaching perversion.
They've given the world a license to sin,
Christ's heart must be broken, betrayed once again.
Sons of perdition, they've all turned away,
From the One who can save them, there's only one way.
The Bible's all wrong they rant and they rave,
While trampling the Blood that really does save.
They mock and they sneer at traditional beliefs,
Unwittingly (?) serving the liar and thief.
The Bible's chocked full of fables and myths,
"Did God really say...?" they craftily hiss.
They're blind to the fact that they are deceived,
The saddest part is, they could have believed.
They claim to worship the God of the Bible,
Yet constantly paint Him as evil and liable.
They don't understand God owes nothing to man,
Nothing but judgment, but that wasn't His plan.
In His magnificent grace He gave us His Son,
And all who believe will shine as the sun.
Christ came to the earth and dwelt a short season,
He loved us and taught us we're here for a reason.
That reason being, to go out to the nations,
Spreading the Gospel that leads to salvation.
But false teachers (He warned us!) in they will creep,
And this they have done disguised as true sheep.
Sheep they are not, but wolves in sheeps clothing,
They have rejected the truth as we see by their loathing.
They're doomed to destruction, they're bound over to hell.
That raging inferno with a sulfurous smell.
They say "There's no such thing you fundamentalist nuts,"
They're in for a surprise, no "ifs, ands, or buts."
"It's all make believe they laugh and they joke,"
Let's see if they laugh when their flesh starts to smoke.
Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you
about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith
that was once for all entrusted to the saints. For certain men whose condemnation was
written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who
change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only
Sovereign and Lord
Jude 3,4 NIV
He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making
everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy
and true." He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the
Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the
spring of the water of life. He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God
and he will be my son. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the
sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars--their place
will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death"
Revelation 21:5-8 NIV
I am astonished that you are so quickly
deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different
gospelwhich is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into
confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from
heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally
condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a
gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!
Galatians 1:6-9 NIV
