A Malediction

by Kemper Crabb

The judges sat outside the Law
And in their pride no evil saw
In setting teeth to Satan's jaw
And feeding him our children.

When viewed in terms of cost and ease
An unborn child is a disease
A holocaust seen fit to please
Our own convience.

A curse A curse the Law it cries.
A curse A curse on mankind's pride.
A curse on him who would deny
God's image in mankind.

Torn from out their mother's womb
Denied the sky - denied a tomb
Conceived in lust to their own ruin
A sacrifice to pleasure.

The doctors with their blood red hands
Who love their money more than man,
With greed their god they lay their plans
The butchers of mankind.

A curse A curse the blood cries out
A curse A curse the heavens shout
A curse A curse on he who flouts
God's image in mankind.

O rid us of this evil, Lord
And turn our hearts by cross or Sword.
Our nation cannot long afford
To live beneath your judgements.

A curse A curse upon their heads
O save them Lord or slay them dead
And fill our country with your Dread
And turn away Your anger.

And The Final Three Parts

And It's The Church's Fault

Warning: Mr Marsalis' uses an ouchy word at the beginning of this clip, just get over it, OK?

This is the cultural result for want of a Church that refuses to preach the whole counsel of God, because we have only preached "what God wants to do for you!" And "God is your own self-esteem Coach!" God forbid that we say anything offensive!!! We have not preached Law and Wrath to show why the Good News is so GOOD! American Idol indeed!

Continuity of The Testaments

Doug Wilson comments...

If someone died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses under the law of Moses (Heb. 10:28), how much more, the author of Hebrews urges, will certain offenses incur punishment under the new (Heb. 10:29-31)? So why do we tend to assume that while a murderer was executed without mercy under Moses, now that Christ has come, murderers will be reconciled to everyone in the world in one great Ophrified group hug? Might not the glory of the new covenant ethic mean that in a Christian republic a serial murderer will be caught faster, tried more justly, and hanged from a higher tree?
