Truth Hides Lies

Where does deception hide? The mind like a library has many aisles Where in this labyrinth doth Satan abide? Discussions they flow To and fro Following the tide The Unseen forces Negotiable Not negotiable Which will he choose? The snake Will find the rock The one marked Truth The one that my ego Has approved And … Continue reading

THE BONDAGE OF THE WILL

THE BONDAGE OF THE WILL The stallion The powerful majestic Beast Broken by rider As one they are free The Word Confessions and creeds are woven into The saddle Thus Resting on truth From the saddle of knowing The reins Pulled by me This the illusion believes Yes I am free Bit and bridle Reins and … Continue reading

Bogged

    Parallel lines deep in the mud Wheels In a rut Travelled too far now No going back Bogged On the track   Darkness descends The mocking laughter of toads and frogs Kneedeep kneedeep And Bogged Bogged Bogged   The sun rises All mocking stopped Salvation A bright coloured Rainbow truck   The beast The wagon … Continue reading

A Poem – GUILTY AS CHARGED

My last couple of posts have been like a whirlwind for me – I know that some people following along who don’t know my background or the background of the Lutheran Church of Australia may have looked at my post a bit perplexed as to what exactly am I talking about. A tiny bit of … Continue reading

Ages back I wrote an offensive poem – so offensive it got moderated out of a Lutheran site that apparently welcomed different viewpoints – the poem can be found here. The poem explores my struggles to read the atrocities of the Old Testament. It is my opinion that we don’t fully acknowledge the stuff that … Continue reading

Your Word is a Lamp Unto my Highway to Hell

This post is a follow on from my last post which talked about exorcism and Satan – it can be found here if you haven’t read it and are interested. In it we realize that Satan is much closer than we imagine and perhaps a bit different to what we have been taught to perceive. … Continue reading
