News flash. Conflict is no longer justified!
This is a majestic Century plant, It blooms and then can linger 100 years
A New Testament Poem. A hand to end divisiveness. A Poem to heal.
This poem I write in Old Testament lament
I hear it quoted and justification meant
I am not of the old I am of the new
I know not the ignorance my forefathers knew
So when one seeks in praise and horrible war they raise
I take some solace in what I hear
From the “brother” of Jesus I hold so dear
Old murder and mayhem was not heaven sent
For those acts of ancestors we should repent
Love is the new commandment that we follow
Ancient battles they ring hollow.
Old school is conflict and battle, new school is seeking resolution, through Love. Tradition is great, but chains are a heavy weight.
I am but a landscape painted in silhouette
I am not someone that has been there yet
My pain is real for all to see
I try but am not worthy
So I am a coward that you do not know
Life is not my friend from high or below
But I sew scripture and the turn of a phrase
And I know just who to praise
Thanks James for setting the matter straight
War and conflict are for a long past date
Seriously these three flags fly together
I reckon James puts war to death here
I originally had a long quote from James here. But the censors declared it too much. So I must just leave you with the citation. I just think the way James said it was like poetry.
Basically he lets us know that any excuses used to create conflict are bogus, because serving Our Lord in Love does not require conflict.
