"Into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence. And when ye come into an house, salute it. And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet." Matt.10
Fishin' for Religion
The reason I'm fishin' 4 a new religion is my church makes me fall asleep.
They're praising a God that watches you weep and doesn't want you to do a thing about it.
When they want change the preacher says "shout it". Does shouting bring about change ?
I doubt it. All shouting does is make you lose your voice.
So on the dock I sit in silence; staring at a sea that's full of violence.
Scared to put my line in that water coz it seems like there's no religion in there.
Naively I give it another go. Sitting in church hearing legitimate woes.
Pastor tells the lady it'll be alright. Just pray so you can see the pearly gates so white.
The lady prays and prays and prays and prays and prays and ...it's everlasting.
There's nothing wrong with praying. It's what she's asking.
She's asking the Lord to let her cope, so one day she can see the golden ropes.
What you pray for God will give; to be able to cope in this world we live.
The word "cope" and the word "change" is directly opposite, not the same.
She should have been praying to change her woes but pastor said "Pray to cope with those".
The government is happy with most churches coz they don't do a thing to try to nurture.
Churches teach us that dying is the only solution. Passiveness causes others to pass us by.
I throw my line till I've made my decision; until then, I'm still fishin' 4 religion
