Missing My Chance: A Poem on Apologetics

“Why do you believe in God?” He asked me, earlier today. To which argument would he give nod? The answer was not so plain to say. Should I bring him to the plausible? To the cosmological, either moderate or full throttle? Should I bring up the cause that makes the causable? To that prime mover... Continue Reading →

Wisdom 

I will guide your steps So your way is not hampered. But I’m not with the sluggard, Nor with the pampered. Come to my house Ye simple and clever. I’ll help to establish Your every endeavor. Share in my fruits, I’m offered to all. But humble yourself Or you surely will fall. A fountain of... Continue Reading →

The Potter and The Clay

God is the Potter And I am the clay. A constant reminder,  That I need today.    He pieced me together, In His image I’m formed.  He continually shapes me, From dust I’ve been born.  But, over the Potter, What right has the clay? Should the pot ask it’s maker, “Why have you made me... Continue Reading →

I Just Wanna Know Everything. 

I just wanna know everything, my Lord, I just wanna know it all.  Birds and fish and creeping things, Knowing is my call. I just wanna know everything my Lord, Reality in all it’s parts, Science, reason, law, and language, History, and all the arts.  Teach me how to know, my Lord, Teach me how... Continue Reading →

Simplicity 

God is simple, yes, it’s true!  God’s not like me or you. He has no parts, no arm or leg. This doctrine is not hard to peg. This does not speak of knowledge or wisdom, Just that God’s not a complex system.  He doesn’t need eyes to aid his seeing, No composition in His being. ... Continue Reading →

I Believe In Order to Understand 

You are God and I am not,  this is the linchpin. You are necessary and I’m contingent;  the Creator/creature distinction.  You wrote the story from eternity past,  The who's and what's and when. You set up kings and tear ‘em down  with a swipe of your sovereign pen.  Your plan is sure, it cannot fail ... Continue Reading →

Another Apologist’s Evening Prayer 

Lord give me knowledge,  apprehension of truth, Understanding and wisdom,  I don’t care if it’s couth. Teach me to honor  Christ in my heart,  To never mistake  the horse and the cart. I will not succumb  to the neutrality they’re demanding I stand with Saint Anselm,  “Faith seeking understanding”. Help me destroy,  lofty arguments and... Continue Reading →

Terrible Terriers 

They bark, they yap, they yip, they yarp,   These dogs, they do not quit! They’ll eat you out of house and home,  And on your floor they’ll… poop. Short and stout, with chest puffed out,  They rule your house as lord.  That is until, that noise so shrill,  they hear the ironing board.  You may... Continue Reading →

My New Toy 

My new toy is awesome,   It lights up my mind. It staves off the skeptic,  the willfully blind.  I use it for choosing,  and even for finding, It hides while I'm snoozing   but everywhere- binding.  It's tethered to feelings  as well as the will, It's allegiance debated,  by Jack and by Jill. Not human convention,... Continue Reading →
