While Romans were raping little boys and burning Christians alive,

The loving Christians did not lose their drive.

 

They honestly cared about multitudes who were about to burn forever in hell.

They cared not that things were not going at all well!

 

But today, if someone hurts our feelings,

we'll have no more of church dealings!

 

If somebody steps on our toes, we'd rather not dance.

We fall in and out of love with Christ, like a school girl romance!

 

We whimper at the slightest mishap of circumstance.

Hey, if it's all about what Christ is supposed to do for me,

then he ought to stop wasting time and take me home to eternity.

 

If my life is always supposed to be going great,

then Jesus ought to take me home, embrace me, and then celebrate!

 

But, it's not about me! I'm on a mission!

He didn't ask my permission!

 

There's real hell to pay for sins of commission.

And a real heaven is affected by sins of omission.

 

I have no time for petty division.

I have no time for Biblical revision.

 

Christ's hope for the world is more important than little squabbles or derision.

God! We'll all die without your vision!
