THE GOD I'VE COME TO KNOW

When I see people using God as a way to discriminate…

as a reason for their prejudice…their bigotry and hate

I am filled with sorrow and my heart is filled with woe

as I wonder how it is their God can differ so much

From the God I’ve come to know.

 

The God I know is a God of love…

a God of Kindness…

a God of care

The God I know treats everyone the same…

every creature…

everywhere.

 

The God I know does not hate…

not me…

not them…

not you.

Which makes me wonder… 

why, in God’s name…so many people do?

 

I have one wish when I see people who…

in God’s name…seeds of hatred sow

I would love to introduce them

to the God I’ve come to know.

"THE GOD I'VE COME TO KNOW"

Religion of any ilk is by its very nature discriminatory.  Spirituality, however, may be another thing.  --  Stephen
