“Church In Financial Meltdown”-
Surprise surprise surprise!
Maybe because its ‘leaders’
Have told so many lies..
Their flock now sick of having
Wool pulled over their eyes..
Suppression bred suspicion
And ebbing flow of ‘tithes’ -
A due and right disaster!
Oh when will we be wise?
Secrets of office-bearers..
(Who’s held office? Do we know?)
The truth of their appointments
Is a thing they’re loathe to show
(It’s funny how joint pastorships
Just seem to come and go!)
Asked for Accounts of pay, amounts,
And whom, Trustees said: “No.”
L I b E r t y, they’ve called it
- a L I E in that, we see!
Two-faced: one light, one darkness,
Through fear of scrutiny.
What’s mantled in concealment,
Must now dismantled be -
Cage, be shattered! Tribe, be scattered!
Set these people free!
‘Church’.. by which I mean a specific local congregation, not all christians everywhere.
But a lesson may be widely applicable.
