7-7-14 Dirge #18 – Lovers of Pleasure Rather Than Lovers of God

lover of pleasure

“My neighbor’s girl is so hot that it hurts!” drooled the man to his friend in the yard;

She was fifteen but he wanted her bad and he’d have her while leaving her scarred.

Beware of your lust, she’s a child with her trust!

You have already sinned, but you had better rescind;

Turn to God right away or you’re dust!

“Football’s my life; I just live for the game!” yelled the man at his friends in the room.

He painted his body and was flaunting it now; he had willed this be done for his tomb.

“Beware, sporting fan, you’re ignoring God’s plan!

Idol worship is wrong and you drag it along;

Be this ardent for Christ if you can!

“I’ve played this game for three days in a row!” the boy boasted to all who could hear.

He was foul and unwashed and just lived in his room; the real world had long disappeared.

Beware, pleasure slut, you are stuck in a rut!

You’re life’s slipping away; you’ve forgotten the Way;

Hell’s just waiting, and you’re making the cut!

Joy and contentment are found in the Lord; all the others are toys of the damned.

Only in Jesus will you find your bliss; cry His name now or always be scammed.

We are all hopeless sinners, but in Christ we are winners!

Feel the Spirit’s conviction and be saved from addiction!

1 “But know this: Difficult times will come in the last days.

2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud,

blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,

3 unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self control,

brutal, without love for what is good,

4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures

     rather than lovers of God,

5 holding to the form of godliness but denying its power.

Avoid these people!”

 

2 Timothy 3:1-5 (HCS)
