The Kingdom

The kingdom awaits for those who believe*the love of the lord is what we receive**He is waiting for us with his arms open wide*to lead us to the Father,with whom in the kingdom we will reside**on the streets of gold we will walk upon every day*to honor our Lord,love and respect to him we will pay**The kingdom of God is where my future will lead*The Salvation of God is what we all truly need**

    My love, this is a great piece. It is so true. I long for the day to be in perfect glory and live in God's kingdom.
    Can you imagine: owning your own custom made mansion?
    Persistence is key

    I believe in god. But all this rhetoric about kingdoms and old fashioned language is a load of bunkum. God doesn't need us to do anything other than follow the ten commandments in spirit and be good people to one another.

    People who have to preach through their postings on here and elsewhere are really only doing it to mask their own insecurity. People with a sincere and genuine belief have no need to post religious rhetoric.

    Judging by the amount of people who actually comment upon posts by such poets as forever jesus6 (who ought to use a spelling checker before posting) and others of a similar vein it is clear that their poetry is posted really only to reassure themselves of their belief and not for the perusal or consideration of other poets because not many are interested enough in the same old rhetoric again and again - hence the low numbers of comments left for their posts.

    Clearly, persistence isn't working is it.

      it's called faith and sharing what we feel in our hearts.and as for my husband,everybody makes spelling errors persistence is always key

        My friend, you just said the total opposite of the truth.
        We do not get into Heaven by our good works. It is not the ten commandments that get us into Heaven. We are no longer under the ten or any of the commandments. That is because Christ died for our sins. We are saved through Christ's blood on the cross. We do not live by all the commandments anymore. We are saved through Christ's love for us. That is why we preach (spread the Gospel) (the good news).
        Believe me. NO ONE is more secure than those who believe in Christ Jesus.
        Persistence is key

        and clearly persistence is working because despite how much you 'disagree' with Christ Jesus, you still respond to positive comments about him.
        I think you do agree with me. I think your spirit is really fighting with yourself.

        A true write blue.
        This is true, apart from the entanglements of man has sometimes (or often?) made it, in the name of 'religion'.
        I'm in a Middle Ages and Reformation Book. Some ghastly things - wars, even burning clergy, Archbishops even, in the name of 'religion'. It drew hundreds of ghouls to see the spectacles.

          Yes Orchi, the early christian church killed people for disagreeing with them (a bit like some Islamists do still) and of course poor old Galileo was imprisoned and given the title of 'Heretic' for 300 years just for proving the world was round. Christians insisted the world was flat u see..... but still some christians are blind to reality.... is persistence your key?

          • orchidee

            Erm, yes, persistence is needed, as one key, I believe.
            There's bigotry, arrogance, etc in 'religion' too. I heard a story. A pacifist said: 'I'm a man of peace; and any one who disagrees with me will get a punch on the nose!'
            Meanwhile - Yes, I thought the world was round, then I fell off the eeeeeeedddddge. It must have been flat then. Good acting there, innit?! lol.

                well persistence is key! Not preaching? Look in the mirror.

                Blue, I respect your assurance and viewpoint, and the urge to sing it out. But it lacks a certain humility and humanity now and then. Not a criticism, but an observation as to why it may engender such strong reactions! Peace to us all!
