Christmas, You Say
©copyright 2004 Bonita M Quesinberry, R.C.
Christmas, you say, is a Christian festival;
one for which you will fight, even in our courts.
Yet, you claim separation of church and state.
Your contradictions are little more than sport;
a game merely to incite angry debate,
to confirm pagan power of ritual.
When did God change or amend all He had taught?
Did He not say, "I change not and will avenge?"
If Christ changed God's will, then He was not God's Son:
a liar against whom God would take revenge.
But, Christ changed nothing: being just a ransom,
that we might live all God's Word: not one forgot.
What God did say would be changed was done by Christ,
who taught and did only His Father's pure will:
nothing more, nothing less. We should do the same.
To God, these heathen ways are a bitter pill,
which He will spew from His mouth and strike your name:
for Christ changed only the law of sacrifice.
Still, more pagan ways were placed in Christ's pure church,
each one declared as paying homage to Him.
How dare man flaunt false gods' ways before our Lord!
You flatter Him with your lips, thus deny Him;
considering His clear ways to be a bore.
By these things, you leave your selves in deadly lurch.
The Jews did all these things and were quickly slain,
that we heathens might learn what offended God;
yet, for these transgressions, man claims divine right,
denying their feet are not properly shod
while boldly displaying their sins in God's sight.
Weep, oh ye vipers; for great will be your pain!
You are ever studying, but not to Truth;
for you bow down to a fallen angel's ways,
and the price he will pay will be yours, as well.
God has sent His messengers each of your days;
but, with your tongues you slay them for Truth they tell.
Wail, oh ye twice dead! God will slay the uncouth.
