God is a God of absolutes
Always has been and always will be,
Because in His economy it’s black or white
With nothing in between.
But when we prefer the grey areas
It’s just so we can justify,
Our intellect and our philosophies
In order to keep an open mind.
But the fact of the matter is
That we are God’s children or we are not,
Where there’s no in-between whatsoever
Since we’re either justified or fall short.
We’re either married or we are not
Because there’s really no middle ground,
Since the public vows do determine
That a lifetime spouse is found.
We are either pregnant or we are not
Because when the egg is fertilised,
It’s the beginning of a beautiful life
And so precious in God’s eyes.
And there’s either eternal heaven or hell
With no purgatory in between,
Because God is not a god of confusion
Or with any doubts it seems.
We’re either hot or cold towards God
Since anything lukewarm is ejected,
And God makes it clear and does not lie
When middle ground is rejected.
Our soulish ways love everything grey
So we can avoid accountability,
Towards a pure and a holy God
But it’s where judgement we will see.
If we walk in the Spirit
With love, peace and humility,
We crucify the lusts of the flesh
So God’s righteousness we see.
The reason God is absolute
Is because His love is so sincere,
And it’s with all His heart that He has provided
With a passion He holds dear.
Jesus paid our debt on the cross
Not half-hearted but with sincerity,
To make us whole towards a pure God
So eternal life we see.
