You kill and maim
and falsely proclaim
Such horrors being done
all in My Name
Is this what you've been taught?
I guess it doesn't matter,
as long as you don't get caught
Don't you see?
You have been caught!
Squarely in the devil's snare
while he laughs it up
without a care
His time will end,
he knows this well
He uses his time granted
to draw his prey into his game
by telling the world
this evil's being done all in My Name
My command was to love one another
If you don't know love,
then you don't know Me
So then, how can this be
that you kill and maim
and falsely proclaim -
all these horrors in My Name?
If you look to the world
to find the Truth,
you will see you've been misguided
Instead, try looking deep into your heart
and see if there you find Me
in my Home to each provided
Once you find Me
and get to know Me,
you'll see the Love I died to give -
the sole reason why I came
No longer caught in the devil's snare
but free to live,
to share My Love and care
Do now these things in My Holy Name
Psalm 37:12-13 NAS
The wicked plots against the righteous
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
The Lord laughs at him,
For He sees his day is coming.
John 13:34 NAS
"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
John 17:14-17 NAS
"I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
"I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one.
"They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
"Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.
