Often I have wondered
Why God created man
After he had already seen
That all was well and good
What was the idea?

Then to my amazement
He went on further
Created a woman
Who would eventually
Invite disobedience
Into the perfect world that it was
What was the idea?

Was there a miscalculation on his part?
Was he testing his creative prowess?
Was he bored that he needed some drama to watch from above?
What was the idea?

Then there is the devil
Why in the world did God make that dude?
That brother is bad news man
Sin as we know it
Is because of the boy Satan
Why didnít God just squash him like a bug?
Out of this world into vacuum and phoof!
I mean really what is the idea?

This life is as it is today
Because God let it happen as it did back then
Now we are mere duplicates of the blueprints
Of the flawed human race
That fell from greatness and perfect existence
And are now born with a curse
As sinful beings
Who are doomed to fail and groomed for hell
Itís all womenís fault
Women and the devil
They plotted this from the very beginning
Because man was like God
Women and Satan decided . . .

Okay thatís about enough there buddy
What are you ranting about?

Ladies and gentleman
You will have to excuse my friend
He gets carried away sometimes
You see he just got rejected by a lady
Yes a lady
Itís amazing what love or lack of it does to people eh?

This guy my friend
Joined a Baptist Church youth group recently
Pretended he was saved
Attended services, sang and danced
All for the attention of a certain lady

This lady, Linda
Is indeed a born again Christian
A believer and a lover of the Holy Word

My friend, Jack
Well heís just your typical
Lover boy with money
Gets everything he wants from mommy and daddy
Thinks he owns the world
Likes Linda
Decides he must have Linda
And there in came the twist

You see Linda is engaged
Since the day she gave her life to Christ
There has been no other man for her but Jesus
As she is still young going through school
She has chosen only one love for her life
He is the perfect gentleman
He inspires her intellectually
Comforts her emotionally
Propels her spiritually
Sustains her literally

Jack is a nice guy
But thatís the thing
He is just a guy
He is not yet a man
He just wants to have fun


Linda is on course
To being a woman of results
You see her father died when she was ten
Itsí been ten years since
She had a tough teenagerís era
Having aborted twice
Expelled from high school thrice
Hopped from school to school
As her mother struggled too
Selling herself to men
So Linda would at least learn
And Linda eventually did
That there is a man called Jesus
And he is quite a friend

She learnt to love Jesus
Accepted him into her soul
As her personal saviour
He made her secure and pure

Linda now understood
That though her father died
She was still alive
And God wanted her to live
So she chose to live
Indeed as a child of God
Placed her past behind her
And entrusted her future to Christ
Linda made it to college
Where she currently is
And now she actually feels
That she is within reach
Of all of her dreams

So when Jack came into picture
He was never really in focus
As far as Linda knew
He would only betray her purpose
So as Linda saw through Jack
She told him to hit the road
Jack had never known rejection
And so he thought her cold

So Jack starts lamenting
That he hates women
And he hates God
And doesnít accept his existence
But as Jack is yapping and crying
Linda is always praying
For Jack and the likes of him
Who have the best of the world
And think they are better than most
But as Linda prudently knows
Their souls are utterly lost
But once they turn to Jesus
Accept Christ as the saviour
Then they are good to go
And there in lies the beauty
That makes our faith so wonderful
Every body and anybody
Is eligible for salvation.
