7-11-14 Dirge #19: Those Holding to the Form of Godliness but Denying its Power


“Do as I say, just don’t do as I do,” said the mom to her daughter Monday;

Sunday School class that she taught was one thing, but in real life was all so cliché.

Beware, you are fake, like a clam claims it’s steak!

You can’t have it both ways; you will lose if you play.

Living lies makes you less than a snake!

“I’m a good Cath’lic, I go to that church,” said the thief to his partner in crime;

He went to confession and told all his sins once a week when he could spare the time.

Beware, hypocrite, your old halo can’t fit!

You claim you’re Christ’s guy, but you steal and then lie.

Unrepentant and vile, now admit!

“All pornography’s sinful, it will send you to Hell!” cried the pastor from his lofty perch.

But soon after he died his computer’s hard drive revealed smut he had hidden at church.

Go away, you deceiver, you’re no Spirit receiver!

You were right about Hell, that is where you’ll soon dwell;

There’s a difference between words and believer!

Now’s the time to get honest, for God can’t abide sin; you can fool the whole world but not Him.

Ask for help earnestly with a true broken heart; He’ll forgive you and brighten what’s dim.

Don’t pretend to be lowly; all you are is unholy.

You can still be forgiven; just be honest and driven.


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)
