A MAN TAKES A STAND
By: Judge Roy Moore
This poem was written by Judge Roy Moore from Alabama. He was recently sued by the ACLU for displaying the TEN COMMANDMENTS in his courtroom. After a lengthy appeals process, the case has been dismissed and the TEN COMMANDMENTS remain on display. This is a thought-provoking poem by a man who stood up for what he believes at his work place, the court room.
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL
America the beautiful, or so you used to be
Land of the Pilgrim's pride, I'm glad they'll never see.
Babies piled in dumpsters, abortion on demand
Oh sweet land of liberty, your land is on the sand
The children wander aimlessly, poisoned by cocaine
Choosing to indulge thy lusts, when God has said abstain
From sea to shining sea, our nation turns away
From the teaching of God's truth, and a need always to pray
So many worldly preachers tell lies about our ROCK
Saying Jesus is not the only way, and then THEY fleece the flock
We've kept God in a building, how callous we have grown
Yet earth is STILL His footstool, and Heaven is His throne
We've voted in a government that is rotten to the core
Appointing godless judges, who throw reason out the door
Too soft to place a killer in a well-deserved tomb
But brave enough to kill a baby before he leaves the womb
You think that God's not angry, that our land's not a moral slum?
How much longer will He wait, before HIS JUDGMENT Come?
How are we to face God, from Whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do, but stem this EVIL tide?
If we who are His children (by praying to receive His Jesus)
Will humbly turn and pray, seek His face and mend the evil OF US
Then God will hear from heaven, and forgive us our sins
He'll heal our sickly land, and those who live these sins
But, America the Beautiful, if not then you will see
A sad but Holy God, withdraw His hand from thee
Luke 9:26, If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
Do not be caught on the wrong side of the fence ... 2jesus
