More poetry

I've been going through my old poems lately and re-wrote some of them.

What is Good:

Perfection cannot be a requirement
If only one man obtained it
Asking Questions do not make me cynical
Yet, in my searching I only seek what is vital
Only Christ is put at the center of my soul
Not a dogma some call a lump of coal
Who's to say who is right? Division only causes us to fight
Some blindly adhere without an open ear (or mind)
What is good? Only the one true God we fear
What is truth? Scripture that enables us to persevere.

somewhat inspired by Five Iron Frenzy's "All That is Good:" Written January 28th, 2013

What can take me from your love?
NOTHING! For it is a gift from above
Because of Christ, we conquer sin
Not letting evil enter in
Yet, we still fail ever day
God still loves is in every way
No powers remove my name from the book of life
Even where struggles cause nothing but strife.

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,
nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.- - Romans 8:37-39 New King James Version.
