Is It All A Game?

By Anthony Wade

Christian Poetry



Why Lord?

Why do the wicked prosper? 

Why do those that do evil seemingly smile all day?

People who say You were invented

Never existed

Are celebrated at symposiums and take the lead chair at banquets

People who are playing church

No reverence for worship

Preaching spoiled spiritual milk

Convincing goats they are sheep

Selling a false salvation and earthly prosperity

If the price is right

If the seed is sown

The harvest must follow?

Selling cheap grace at a steep price

What is the price for a human soul?

Your best life now is your worst hell forever

I see those lying in Your name

Deceiving many for their own kingdoms

Purpose driven goats

Sacrificing their Mary upon the altar

Of the Church of Martha

Turning the unsaved into the unchurched

Not seeing nor caring what the difference means

A three point topical sermon and a cloud of dust

A three sentence prayer...

Devoid of any power

Devoid of any hope

Devoid of salvation

Welcome to the family of God?

Creating generations of churched people who do not know the Lord

Having never turned from their sins

Believing in the friendship of God without knowing the Savior

Without giving up our own Lordship

But they think they know their purpose

Until that day they stand before you

Away from me you who practice lawlessness!



Didn't we serve in many ministries in Your name? 



Didn't we put on many plays and musicals in Your Name?

Conduct Easter Egg Hunts in Your Name?

Celebrate Halloween...I mean Your name?



Didn't we water down the Gospel to attract more people to our churches in Your name?

Didn't we kill our wounded and bury our bleeding in Your name?

Didn't we mock doctrine and ignore Scripture in Your name?

Didn't we discard Your prophets for the sake of unity? 

Didn't we mock Your prophets with shouts of judgment! Legalism!

Didn't we?



Do not envy the wicked 

Or despair at those profiting in false prosperity

Nothing escapes the eyes of the Lord

Every knee shall bow

Every tongue confess

There are no hearses with luggage racks

There is no prosperity apart from God

Fear not.
