Poem: Intellectual Postulations

entry picture

Sadly, there are many intellectual postulations
that are well meaning, but fatally flawed.
One can only end up with an unholy mixture from…
combining Man’s religious views with God’s Law.

Beyond the constraints of the mental realm,
the human template of thought cannot contain God.
Yet after more than two thousand years of Church,
lessons are still not learned; so it’s not odd…

to see a skeptical world, groaning and grasping
for rays of hope and light and salvation.
God’s truth can stand on its own, not needing
to be couched within feeble human traditions.

The multitude of meaningless rhetoric
will ultimately reveal the heart of a fool;
this idea demonstrates that the Church really needs…
Christ in its heart to reign and to rule.

It’s shameful to see an inability to ‘walk in love’;
unfortunately, it seems to appear everywhere today;
stop ignoring the basic, Biblical truths, for…
Christ declared Himself to be the Life, Truth and Way.

as a convinced Christian I find little to disagree with in your Biblically based poetry.

However, concerning your lines:

`God`s truth can stand on its own, not needing
To be couched within feeble human traditions`

I think the contrary...that God`s truth must be
addressed to the feeble human tradition of what
particular era we happen to find ourselves in.

Your poems and styles)are admirable as personal statements, but I feel that they often don`t speak to `the present situation` of the feeble tradition of where we are now.

I acknowledge that there is always room in poetry for the Biblical style plainness. (It minds me of Milton)
