Devils & Politicians

I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.   - (Romans 16:17-18 ESV)

Dressed up in a three piece suit and tie
A straight-laced man
Tellin’ me boldfaced lies
Look right into the camera
And give ‘em a big smile
Draped in stars and bars
To hide a heart that’s blatantly foul
Pander to the people
Tell ‘em exactly why they need you
Add a “God Bless America”
And turn the White House
Into your cathedral
Every four years
It’s like a bad date
Love and trust don’t come quick enough
So you settle for rape
Tell us to take what you flaunt
You just take what you want
No need to check the reference
Just know there’ll be a problem if we don’t
Take your words as the Gospel
‘Cause Jesus will get hostile
If we fail to put our trust
In this self-proclaimed apostle

Paul, I find appealing
But you, I find appalling
As you disguise your ambition 
For power and position
In a cloak of divine calling
Mangle the hell out of the text
Add a cross for a neck piece
Trade a crown of thorns
For a crown worms
Another soul denied solace
By every word you speak
‘Cause you can always trust
The devils and politicians
To stone all of the prostitutes
And heap praise on the magicians
Slight of hand, rearranged
While eternity is at stake
This is the sign of darker days to come
And we’re nowhere close to being awake…

Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.  - (Jude 1:3-4 ESV)

Soli Deo Gloria,
