at the save-your-soul dealership
as a rare sighting
that point aside
i’m no theologian
i was wondering
given your attendance record
if you could
shed some light on something for me
here’s the rub
i read in old days
those barbaric pagans
had lots of gods
prayed to for
or because of their tribe
folks have a lot
of different statues
that they pray to
instead of directly
Being then God’s offspring, we ought not to think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and imagination of man…
An excellent question. I always cut out the middle man and go straight to the boss.
I love this:
We ask the foolish certain:/
We should Question G_d/
Interesting question charles, let me know the answer if you find it. 🙂
let me know when you the reasons .. though i guess there not be any good ones ,,
Wonderful poem Charlie, raising a very good question.
It is believed by the Catholic Church that we can pray with the Saints and they will pray alongside of us. The statues or Icons that Catholic people use are just visual reminders. People can identify with certain Saints and what that Saint represents from when he or she lived. It is totally different to back in the tribal days and the Greek mythological Gods.
Love Jo 🙂
I agree, Charles. Why bother with a middle man?
yes.iagree with you…..direct communication with HIM is is the proper way……hell with save-your-soul-dealership….
and lots of secular icons they worship as well.. interesting verse.
“Why” indeed? I just speak to him like a dear friend I respect…. well said.
Good question! Fine poem! Thanks, Charles!
Very good questions posed. You must really ponder why the idea of multiple God’s is ‘wrong’ and that praying to multiple saints is different. Really liked the Flow of this one.
Whole lot of false gods out there at the moment. This is another fine piece; as usual you go right to the heart of things.
Well thats coz we as humans are creative ppl and like our god to be a tad different from his.. just so that we can feel smug n superior.. dont u think?
