Truth These Days Seems Up For Grabs [Poem]

Truth these days seems up for grabs, When at God's Word they take their jabs. The truth of God, it will not fail Though so many against it rail. They will someday, bear the shock Standing before the God they mock “How can we know” is their battle cry Ignorance is bliss, is what they … Continue reading Truth These Days Seems Up For Grabs [Poem]
