The “new” New Covenant

Scales_of_justice

Dear Jesus, you’ve been our best friend

But truly let’s no more pretend.

Like tables turned and anger just,

We’re called to judge – in fact, we must; love is a trend.

 

Oh, Lord, how can we turn away?

To do so is naiveté.

Too much transgression to distill,

There’s too much sin, too much free will in place today.

 

As your disciples, we’ll ensure

To judge and keep all people pure

With guns in homes and prayer in schools.

Through laws to bind and tighter rules, we’ll bring the cure.

 

This world has problems, that’s quite clear.

To poor and homeless: “Get careers!”

We won’t divert with ‘ozone’ lies;

We’re righteous ‘cause we legalize and save through fear.

 

So Jesus, glad we had this meet,

But love has got to take backseat.

The intervention’s overdue;

We love you, Lord, but in our view, you’re obsolete.
