It's a sad thing to be an infidel.
To deny there's a literal Heaven and Hell.
To reject all absolute claims that there's a loving God,
Then expect to live in Heaven someday - my, how odd!
It's a wretched thing to be a modernist.
To deny that every single one of us has sinned,
Then somehow expect that by calling God a liar,
Will miraculously make you right with Him!
It's a cursed thing to be a New-Evangelical.
Claiming to be God's friend when you won't trust or obey,
Somehow thinking that by being religious,
Will magically blot out your sins on Judgement Day!
It's a sorry thing to claim to believe the Bible
While you're doing your best to explain it away.
Stubbornly thinking that by doing good works,
Will compensate for the price our Lord had to pay!
It's a wonderful thing to actually believe the Bible.
To trust wholly that every Word of God is true,
To accept Jesus Christ as your very own Saviour,
Believing that He suffered on Calvary for you!
It's a blessed thing to believe all of God's promises.
Knowing that the Lord is sovereign in your life.
Clinging closely to Christ in the midst of the trials,
Having inward peace, even during outward strife!
It's an awesome thing to be a Christian.
No longer condemned and under wrath, but reconciled.
To know you have eternal life in Heaven,
With sins forgiven, and welcomed as God's dear child!
