Seeds of Discrepancy

Analyze everything I want to know
Why did you take me on this path to sow
Seeds of discrepancy from what theyíre told
Challenge believers to stray from the fold

Pharisees, Saducees made up the rules
Changing Godís meaning to train them like fools
Adding to Sabbath Day burdens and yokes
Leading the sheep on a path thatís a hoax

Leave the man crippled or youíre not a Jew
Every rule followed, exceptions wonít do
Act of His love God sent Jesus His Son
Breaking the rules for our freedom to run

Freedom to hear what God wants us to do
Jesus the Lamb of God makes all things new
History would tell us itís happened before
Many a time when God opened a door

Abraham ready to kill his own son
Promisedí descendents amounted to none
If he obeyed the word he heard from God
How was he better than Allahís jihad

Righteous was Abraham for he believed
Isaac survived, with his wife they conceived
Many descendants like sand on the shore
Godís ways arenít our ways, examples galore

Joseph the dreamer would lead his whole tribe
Brothers thought better to sell his young hide
Lust from his masterís wife fought to the end
Lying adulteress, truth could not bend

Left in a prison to ponder his fate
Served his God faithfully, promise would wait
Then one day Joseph interpreted dreams
Pharaohís chief butler forgot him it seems

Downcast yet Joseph served faithfully still
Serving Almighty, desiring His will
Suddenly Pharaohís disturbed by a dream
Hears about Joseph, itís time to redeem

Rahab the harlot deceiver of men
Helped out the Israelites lying again
Traded her people, assisted the spies
Won her redemption when she told her lies

Marry a virgin; donít stray from this rule
Prophet Hosea appeared as a fool
Followed commandment to marry a whore
Suffered with Gomer, she wanted much more

Cheating with others her faithless heart cold
Seeking her passions with men and their gold
Wanting her love drove Hosea to chase
After his heartís love to hold and embrace

God sent His only Son Jesus to die
Paying our penalty His blood did buy
Freedom to leave lives of evil behind
Wanting our own will, His way seems to bind

We are the harlots, the Gomers today
Seeking out riches, desiring to play
Tell us the rules we can quickly obey
Doing our penance to keep wrath at bay
