My hope for you

Poetry speaks to our minds and hearts and is meant to communicate more than the sum of its words. It is an apt expression of our walk with the Lord. I encourage you to forward this link to those you love. I pray this poetry leads you into reflection and prayer but I also want to start a conversation. You, too, have something to share with others-not only in person, but also here. Your experience is yours to give away to build up and learn from others in the Body of Christ. Share the word that you hear, the experiences you have lived. We are all part of the New Evangelization.If you also want to contact me by email, feel free: genefirn@yahoo.com

The Refusal

forcing policies that
require obedience
at odds with conscience
lawless lawgivers
coerce a
sham of freedom
mandates
contrary to principles of
faith's foundation
self-justified by
simulating compassion
in disguises
masking death by
tyranny's charade
negating nature's truth by
professing human rights
founded in
creative imaginations
promoting injustice
shutting down
dissent despite
religious principles
to the contrary
no less obvious
to all observers of
reason's deliberation of
right and wrong
unjust laws
untethered from
Divine foundations
require a
personal decision
not merely the
blind obedience of
fearful subjects
laws must be just to
be obeyed
secular commandments with
fraudulent  requirements 
must be refused for
they bring death to
the heart created
for life
eternity's King
overrules
temporal tyrants
whose claims of
authority
overreach with an
immoral ruse and
echo from hell's chambers
disguised in sweet
dictations of human rights
but are in reality
liberation's dehumanization
not gonna happen here

Reflection/Discussion:
-What are some examples of laws/policies "at odds with conscience"?
-How is dissent shut down in our culture?  
-What is the principle(s) involved in civil disobedience?
-What part does "spiritual warfare" play in today's culture wars?
-Learn to defend Scriptural/Church moral positions using the "natural law" and reason.
