How firmly we love the Lord
how many sacrifices we make to prove it
though internally we scream out to Him
externally we pantomime
sobriety for polity
and stand outside the church door
holding large neon signs condemning SIN
working as hard as we can
to prevent the believer from coming in
The end result of literal discussion
taking all those books of the Bible and
refusing to parse them, leaving men to say:
“I firmly believe that God is larger than this dreaded virus.”
Until he is brought down by the little bastard.
The summary to wit:
God is too large to be contemplated comfortably.
And a preacher’s pride led to suicide.
