This I do acclaim
I'm told God has many names
A sense of uncertainty
With feelings of anxiety

Cultures clash in their beliefs
Amalgam of information debriefed
There's no conclusion
So much confusion

What would the world be like without rules?
From the United States to Istanbul
Even in Saudi Arabia's largest city Riyadh
All are subject to the ethical rules of God.

To many faiths to explore
Three I'll mention do implore
All three religions respect the prophets that's true.
Muslims, Christians, and Jews,

They all began in the Middle East.
Even celebrate similar religious feast
As well agreeing you must repent.
All believe in the Old Testament.

Each faith thinks the other is fooled
All are guilty of breaking the Rules
There is none righteous, no, not one
That's why God sent His Son

And this is the testimony
A memorial testimonial
God has given us eternal life
No need for conflict, dissension and strife

This life is found in His Son.
God left nothing undone.
God knew we would be breaking the rules
That's why He gave us these tools

Repentance of sin is precise
Your then covered by the blood of Jesus Christ
In Gods presents you can be entering
With Prayer, Praise and Thanksgiving.

God will always make a way
Read your bible everyday
Know through Jesus, God's forever your ally
And all your needs He will supply.

Very well said. You are a gifted poet.
Roberta Kittrell08/29/04
I agree that you are a gifted poet of the Lord, like was David.

Norma, I'm unfamiliar with poetic license. However, I think it could be helped with more punctuation marks than the few you stuck in here and there.
