In Bible school, we have been talking about the preservation of the Authorized Version of the Bible. The perfection of God's word is often questioned by professors and men with titles. So in comes this poem.
Why Can You Not Believe God’s Word
Why can you not believe God’s word
What makes it so despised?
And when did God make you the man,
To whom he’d go, so wise.
Though God has said he’d keep his word
Forever, you would question.
And what makes you the authority
Of how long it would last then?
His word God placed above Christ’s name,
And all at his feet will kneel.
What boldness then to call it flawed
And change it by how you feel.
Original writings can ne’er be sought
Though scholars will say they exist.
But question their school, and rebellious they’ll call you
For at the man of God, you shook your fist.
God never said he’d inspire men,
But his word he said that he would
Give inspiration, to all, not just some.
Yet titles say he never could.
Believe that a book could be written by God
They smile and say they believe,
But big-shot professors will bluff and run circles
‘round students they’ll so quickly deceive.
But God said that it is, right now, yet preserved
And he said that he could not lie
And Biblical proof says God’s keeps his word
So I’ll trust him, but liars will fry.
