The Church Today
by Deborah Ann Belka  
3/11/2011 / Poetry

They say I sound too preachy,
and that for me to win a soul
I need to be friendlier
and not be so loud and bold.

They say that I offend others,
when I talk about their sin
and that if I don't tone it down
their souls I will never win.

They say the King James Bible,
is too stuffy and too old
that the Word comes across better
when the watered down version is told.

They say they only want to hear,
about a Gospel that is full of love
not the one of fire and brimstone
that will fall from the skies above.

They say they want to 'feel good',
as they sit in their cushy little seats
and to put away all the old hymnals
so they can hear music's pounding beats.

They say they want a preacher,
who will joke and kid around
but nowhere in my Bible . . .
is this kind of leader seen or found.

They say they must take down the Cross,
as some are bothered by the Crucifixion
and that is why the church seems like . . .
a page right out of a book of fiction!
