Just Shut UP!!

Just shut up they all shouted!
Your talk of sin’s an insult
So the prophets and preachers stayed quiet
And now we can see the results

Our children won’t keep themselves pure
Our marriages last weeks, months, maybe years
We have all the comforts we can purchase
Our nights are filled with phobias and fears

We have neuroses and psychotic breaks
People kill without reason or rhyme
Sexual perversions from pulpit to pew
And these are just the beginning of bad times

The propaganda machines keep on talking
They tell us we can do and have all we want
From the newspapers, radio, and television
They tease, they entice and they taunt

The one message they all have in common
Is to remind us of what we don’t need
Indulge in all of life’s pleasure
Just to make sure the Bible we don’t read

So the prophets and preachers are now silent
It is an unpopular message they proclaim
Sin will bring death and yet salvation
Can be had if you believe on Christ’s name

Oh Lord please send messengers with purpose
And let that purpose be to tell us what’s true
For we know for sure this world is ending
And one day, we must answer to You

1Corinthians 9:16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for
necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!

2Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
