I’ve heard the word and read the book And I’ve decided to tear out some pages I can’t believe things that cannot be proven And yet I still love Jesus and Ecclesiastes The temptation of the lamb taught me well And I will not trade on God’s promise In faith I will pray for relief or mercy But I will never leap for I am a doubting Thomas My ears are filled with words of good news As the followers of inerrancy and canon speak With images of a burning bush in their eyes They believe a tongue that is neither Hebrew or Greek I once stood in a church as a member Yet apparently not close enough for heaven My walk was not in the same direction As those who believed they were chosen I must cleanse my mind of the privileged few They live within the walls they have constructed They loudly proclaim God’s revelation to them But why do they not pray in a closet as instructed? I have prayed to you in my car and in the shower I’ve asked for the things that I cannot provide There is no need to share these moments with anyone else And I am willing to wait holding the secrets I did not confide I’ve met so many Gabriel’s blowing their trumpet They make sounds neither unnerving or pleasing Instead they merely fill the air with hollow evangelism As I cover my ears hoping you will provide true meaning I don’t need a father figure or a myth to know what is right Sin is just another word for the consequence of behavior Experience has taught how a breath can become a gale And I now look for peace instead of running from Lucifer No spoken word can substitute for the natural world Just as the natural world cannot ask us for our silence Instead we walk upon the evidence and pave the garden Removing traces of your glory in turn for defiance I await the one man who can light a candle without a match But maybe I am that man as I see my own way without fellowship If any man asks for truth I will answer, “What did Christ say?” And then I will turn my back to show the scars from mankind’s whip
