A poem I wrote to highlight the difference between Jesus and false
religion. In the scriptures Jesus received the most opposition from the
most religious people of his day. At it's core Jesus' gospel and the
good news of the Cross is in pure opposition to
self-righteousness/self-justification. Religion is man centered, Jesus
is God-centered. This poem highlights my journey to discover this truth.
Religion either ends in pride or despair. Pride because you make a list
and can do it and act better than everyone, or despair because you
can't do your own list of rules and feel "not good enough" for God. With
Jesus though you have humble confident joy because He represents you,
you don't represent yourself and His sacrifice is perfect putting us in
perfect standing with God!
The Black Sheep tries to warn its friends with the truth it has seen, unfortunately herd mentality kicks in for the Sheeple, and they run in fear from the black sheep and keep to the safety of their flock.
Having tried to no avail to awaken his peers, the Black Sheep have no other choice but to unite with each other and escape the impending doom.
What color Sheep are you?
