Who's God.


I was asked the question

“Do I believe?”

I used to believe,

But no longer,

The christian god is a myth.

Where my wife prayed to him,

Prayed and sung his virtues

For ALL her long life

He just took her,

Took her into the realms of dementia.

No matter how I prayed

He just was not there,

Not there for her.

She was taken from me

And on that day I realised,

Realised that religion was a myth,

Organised religion was a myth.

So I renounced christianity

In that moment I became free.

It was as if a weight had been lifted,

Had been lifted from my shoulders.

I was free,

Free to worship My God and My Spirit,

No more untruths told to me,

Told to me by organised religion.

So now I can say I am free,

And may YOUR god go with you.

  • Comment from author about the poem: Blue Orchid asked me to contribute in a Fusion Poem about christian belief, so I did and this is what I wrote. I used to be a Chaplain to the Sea Cadets not so many years ago so I knew about christianity and used to teach it - that no longer exists and I feel free.

    I may have left these very same words on another poem of yours or possibly someone else's, some time ago,but I feel an urge to speak them every chance I get. Organized religion is nothing more than a monument to man's ego.🌞🕊 cheers Andy 🍻

    • Goldfinch60

      Thank you WJG, so very true.

      If leaving 'organised religion', that can be good - the rules, regulations, messing about, etc.
      I'm not sure that you have left belief in God.

      • Goldfinch60

        I believe in My God, I have been touched by My God.

        I hear you loud & clear my golden friend .. You are far from being alone .. Neville

        • Goldfinch60

          Thank you Neville, so true I am far from being alone.

          All I ever want to express about the Holey (note the added 'e') Trinity: God, Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy may be found in a brief search of my back catalogue.
          If, however, you have belief (and here 'belief ' is the relevant word) in 'My God and My Spirit' then go for it, Andy - what ever keeps you grounded and sane.

          • Goldfinch60

            Thank you Dave, keeping grounded and sane is so important.

            God is within me, the goodness in me! Sometimes I wonder if forgetting is a blessing!
            As always , very deep poem!

            • Goldfinch60

              Thank you Dove.

              I totally agree with your sentiments expressed so well today. I too was a christian and abandoned that belief through it's inadequacies whan a personal disaster affected my family. Since then I too have realised the presence of the real god which is always with me.

              I mock the condescending preachers of organised religious mumbo-jumbo who post on here such as the one who calls himself "forever jesus" and his kind.

              • Goldfinch60

                I knew that you would agree d a, we are of the same mind in this.

                Okay I can relate to Robert on this one. I would classify myself as agnostic. I don't believe nor disbelieve in the divine. But I respect all who do have faith in religions. Either way, you wrote this well. Nice job! 💛

                • Goldfinch60

                  Thank you Rocky, yes we all have our own ways of belief.

                  In a man's kindness
                  In true humanity
                  God resides

                  • Goldfinch60

                    So true spilleronsheet.

                    It really breaks my heart to see so many that has turned their backs on our Lord,it really is a sad day to know this, still Dion and I will pray for you all and pray that God will soften your hearts once again.

                    • Goldfinch60

                      But My God has softened my heart and it does not need organised religion to to tell me how to do it.

                      To each his own. I respect all who have faith in religion. Whatever brings comfort and eases distress and grief. A thought provoking piece.

                      • Goldfinch60

                        Thank you Rozina, I have that respect for all as long as they do not try to force their religious beliefs on me.
