Circa 1976: Parable In Rhymed Lines

The Lord looked down on a man who begrudged

others' love, and said, "I forbade you---yet you judged,

"presuming to speak to others on My behalf,
"like those who forced Aaron to forge the Golden Calf."
The man looked up, with some reposte to tell,
but was not heard out of the depths of Hell:

he, who had often quoted the Sacred

Scriptures to try to justify his hatred,

now screams in torment, not a moment belated.



Author's Notes/Comments: 

I dislike cowards who quote Scriptures, in which they do not believe, to try to bolster their criticisms of Christians, the elect who do believe.
