I could never understand it; the cross, you know.
How could you willingly go to such a horrible death?
I stood there in shock, wondering what it all meant, if it
meant anything at all ~ ~ ~you were the one who always challenged
the law and now you allow yourself to be a victim of that same law.
I thought you said you had come to save us, to set us free, to destroy
the ones who hold us bound ~ now they are destroying you!
“They did not desgtroy me, they only succeeded in destroying themselves”.
We are at Cross Purposes my friend ~ ~
Step outside your Jerusalem walls and weep with me.
Look within your Lawful Gates and see the ones who wait for love;
love for the sake of love
love without recrimination
love without judgement
Do not set your pride above your compassion
Weep with me for the victims of their Letter Laws ~ ~
the ones that have been crucified with disdain;
those who don’t conform. . .
the gay ones. . .
the homeless and poor ones. . .
the welfare mother. . .
Stand with me, watch with me, follow me. . .
Because when all is said and done the Cross wins the victory, the Cross wins!!!
