#ENEWSGHPoeticLicence: Corpus – Asford PSALMS

From glory came the earth; And from the earth, sand. From sand came forth man; And man brought forth sin. For the reasons and reasoning, I care not. But...

From glory came the earth;

And from the earth, sand.

From sand came forth man;

And man brought forth sin.

For the reasons and reasoning, I care not.

But for the redemption plan god had for man, He sent down, in essence, His son to live with, for, and amongst men.

 

It appointed for man to live and then to die.

From dirt came man and into it we shall unwind.

Though born out of flesh the Spirit cometh from above.

And whether being a cross or a stake, He spilt His blood onto the ground for the Love sake

 

So what did He leave behind?

Love in all state;

A torn curtain in the inner of the temple so we can all partake with faith.

But as it is now, the faith is a counterfeit.

We believe in ourselves and curse in pennies and pounds.

There is too much ego in the church.

The place of respite is now a home to despise.

 

The head has forgotten its purpose and thinks it sits above the rest of the body, without it, the rest won’t live to tell its story.

The eye watches yet it sees blindly.

The nose breathes but holds himself to be the lifeline.

The mouth sings but not songs anymore; cursing the others not working well.

 

There’s too much ego in the church!

For the backbone knows that without him the entire body is crippled without a doubt.

Yet, he forgets he will not always stand.

Speaking of standing, the feet does that well; it can stand, walk and run.

It has learnt to run out of the sight of the sun.

Not forgetting the hand, he casts and kills; beats and steals.

And the remaining parts left to carve its own parts of what reality should feel.

 

What is wrong with the church is ego.

Pride in the works of thyself.

Head belittling the feet.

Eyes bewitching everything.

Hands bedeviling the heart.

Mouth; cussing the entire band.

And the bone believing without him, the rest is weak.

Oh! How quickly I forgot the brain; thinking highly of himself and silently talking in silence behind the back of the rest of the body.

 

The parts of the body in Christ;

The church He left behind and the scriptures we keep on to rewrite has been ridden with only word;

Ego!

 

There’s too much ego in the church.

 

Asford Psalms.
