Does anyone need slurs,
from slandering neighbors?
Should it bother anyone,
that people seek after God?

Would it be better, to have
vile people influencing those,
with whom you have interaction
on a regular or daily basis?

What benefit can there be,
when individuals choose to
callously break their oaths?
Are they friend-worthy?

Ideas of no absolute truth
are destructive forces, meant
to ruin our relationship
with the one, true God.

Can anyone really be
hurt by unyielding Truth,
when it uncovers the lies
that people are living?

Nice writing...some don't want to know the truth...they want to live in their definition of truth...which is saying they are rebellious if a higher truth is presented to them...then some want to kill the messenger...and for that reason they hung Jesus on a cross 2,000 years ago and many would still do so today...james
