11-28-15 Taste

Rotten-Inside 2

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Matthew 7:20 KJV



It isn’t always easy judging fruit.

Sometimes you have to take a bite to see.

The tree it came from may have good repute,

But in the end it’s taste, don’t you agree?

A man who beats his wife may go to church

And act as pious as the Son of Man.

If you’re attune to Spirit in your search

You’ll see he’s filthy as a garbage can.

The Holy Ghost will lead you to the truth,

Will pull away the curtain of a lie.

Not everybody evil acts uncouth.

Some heavenly discretion trumps the sly.

Most times a rotten fruit’s as plain as day,

But some will fool; let Spirit lead the way.

10-15-15 On Mindedness


For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Romans 8:6 KJV


The carnal mind is focused on the flesh

And all the things of flesh are doomed to die.

It may look good today while it is fresh

But it will sure be rotten by and by.

There’s nothing wrong with passion in its place:

Creative drive is needed to produce,

But passion gone awry is bankrupt grace,

Like tying knots until you’ve got a noose.

If you want peace and everlasting life

The mind of Christ is really what you need.

The Word leads where the love of God is rife;

Such passion of the spirit should you heed.

The carnal mind will take you soon to death.

The mind of Spirit brings eternal breath.

8-20-14 Still in Darkness


The world is filled each day with so much hate;

The sons of darkness roam the streets for blood.

Beware the ones who claim the Light is great,

But swims within the murk of evil’s flood.

You know the ones who stink of Satan’s touch

Although they bathe in virtue’s sweet perfume.

They walk with nose upright a tad too much

And point their finger all around the room.

The food may look so pleasing to your eye

But if the taste’s not right you will not eat.

The ones professing righteousness are sly

But just beneath the skin lies rotten meat.

            You can’t love Christ and hate your fellow man

            There is no room for loathing in God’s plan.


Whoever says he is in the light

and hates his brother is still in darkness.

1 John 2:9 ESV
