You Must Be Kidding Jesus

You must be kidding Jesus
You must have lost your mind
I ask for eternal life
That’s all I want to find
Instead you give some word
Stupid advice off top of head
To sell all that I have
And follow you instead
You take me for a fool
I only want religion
I follow all the rules
Make good moral decisions
If following you means losing
The things that I have got
Then I’ll change the prayer I’m using
And you I’ll follow not
As for heaven, it’s so far off
I want what I see right now
I’ll do the best I can
And make it in somehow

Mark 10:17 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

Mark 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

Mark  10:22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
