When the good book has been cooked,
the flock is fleeced – we all have hooked
into a deficit of kingdom riches,
squandered as the truth unhitches
from a place of right accounting.
Bottom line – the plunder’s mounting,
from one man’s debt and diminution
(rather than make restitution).
Bullying and spiritual abuse are rife sadly. Church has, ironically, not proved itself a safe place for many who are now de-churched because of its complicity and cover-ups. Insecure individuals may wreake havoc in the souls of those who trusted in faith, and the institution is more paper tiger than roaring Lion. It impoverishes us all. But only for a time… watch with interest.
