YOUR CHILDREN WON’T COME TO CHURCH

Your children won’t come to church!
And you shouldn’t be sad about it,
When they were little and dependent,
Often more than they heard of prayers,
Or the power of God unto salvation,
They heard your mean and disparaging comments,
Poking holes on every Saint and Sinner,
Finding something to correct in every sermon,
Whipping character out of the strugglers privileged to speak for God,
They heard that everyone in the office was given to flimflam,
And every unkindness of fellow sinners was erected on billboards in your house,
So they grew up hating the Church,
Yet because of your fist and knuckles,
They have gone against their will to Church,
But now that adulthood has tricked them into assuming freedom,
They are making their decision to find a place with saints,
Yet they know it is not the church,
They are going to try to find it in the casino or the taverns of mirth and revelry,
So your children won’t come to Church,
And you shouldn’t be sad about it!
