The pastor spoke to the mercenary “Only you can help us” The hollow eyes said, “I am a killer” The pastor swallowed hard He knew he was making a deal With an unrepentant sinner
The pastor said, “We are missionaries But our faith cannot stop bullets It seems God is giving us a test” The killer wondered about the covenant The one between God and Abraham Why was he not blessed?
The people of God spread the word It is their commandment It is in their heart They walk to the ends of the earth And to the ends of humanity It is where evil starts
The pastor spoke again “We have found hell on earth We have no answers except for you” The soldier lit a cigarette “I am not the answer for life I only pay what is due”
Can you turn the other cheek When to do so Brings only death? Can you forgive someone Who has killed your spirit And your loves breath?
The pastor knew the deal “Will you help us? Will you help a Christian, soldier? He thought about Jesus “The say blessed are the peacemakers But I’m the grim reaper”
You have to believe in evil To kill another man You have to believe in redemption To see God’s plan Where the word does not exist A believer will plant a garden And in God’s eyes Even a soldier can be pardoned
