TITLE: Caution, Read The Signs

Way up in Minnesota, at least nine months a year.
You travel on the roadways with hearts so full of fear.
It seems like every mile thereís orange signs big and tall.
All telling you of your demise if you donít heed their call.

Stop, slow down, pull over, and watch out for that truck.
The road ahead is closed somewhere, youíre running out of luck.
The speed youíre going is too fast, road conditions are the worst.
And if you hit that pothole your tireís sure to burst.

When we play the game of life God gives us signs to read.
They point us to the way of Christ and of our awesome need.
They warn us of those things to come in futuristic days.
For all of those who wonít partake in giving God their praise.

Now in the news there are some views with sexuality.
It knocks the church right off its perch with immorality.
They like to say that itís okay for same sex ones to lead.
Itís true they are forgiven and Christ will intercede.

But God has said that leaders will be held much higher up.
Their life should be quite holy, striving for a sinless cup.
To be a husband of one wife is in the Masters will.
Not boy with boy and girl with girl where Satin makes the kill.

Those that want to include all claim face from God above.
They tell us that He will not judge these people so in love.
They say something that feels so good just cannot be a sin.
The Bible must be wrong right there for God wants us to win.

So here we go, the church is split, and both sides want a fight.
One says lets just compromise for both are surly right.
The others say God calls it sin; it is both cut and dried.
But in Christ thereís forgiveness when Christ was crucified.

I guess I say the issue isnít whether gay or straight.
Itís how we read the Bible and then interpolate.
We should be quite careful; you canít just pick and choose.
If we do not take it all, in the rapture we will loose.

I appreciate your call to looking at the Scriptures the way God intended us to see them.... orange signs of warning for our own good. Nicely done!

Not only is the rhyming in this poem excellent, but the message is a very important one to our culture! In a world that is so obsessed with being "politically correct," it's great to have believers out there who are not afraid to stand up for what God says is right, especially in the area of marriage. I'm cheering you on!
