Divine Revelation

Religion is just a placebo-
an opiate for the masses.

They pop god like a pill,
administered once a week
with a glass of grape juice.

Yes, participating in worship
alleviates pain for a while,
but it’s only short-term.

It must more than
occasional medication;
God should be
whole body transplant.

He should become
part of who we are,
not just taken
as a weekly dose.

We need to be transformed
by an intimate relationship
not some informal diagnosis.

He’s the ultimate Doctor,
after all;
He can heal anything
that ails us.
