Religion tends to make so many laws
Both out of fear or power gone amok,
Before you know it, it has got its claws
Into your home with its judicial muck.
It’s quite one thing to heed the word of God,
But not to legislate the word to death.
The ways of man are volatile and flawed;
God gave us sense enough to take a breath.
The Sabbath day’s for resting, this is true,
But if you have a flat, then change the tire.
Don’t show up just for church and take a pew;
If next door’s up in flames, put out the fire!
The Holy Ghost should be your first real guide;
Just practice listening – He won’t misguide.
11 What man shall there be among you,
that shall have one sheep,
and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day,
will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
12 How much then is a man better than a sheep?
Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
Matthew 12: 11-12 KJV
