I have been thinking a lot about good and evil lately. I have been posting a lot on Instagram and this has made me think about how easy it is to be bad. I’m going to use the word bad as I don’t believe that I am evil. Well I hope not!!!
No is always a word we don’t like to hear, so I guess if we simply take, rather than ask, it is easier. Does that make me bad or evil? I’ve been talking about good and evil with my friend Anna and she tells me even if you spend your whole life being bad/evil and ask God for forgiveness and believe in him at the end, he will forgive. I suppose he is all merciful. It made me think though, all those evil people out there who find the lord at the end, they will also be forgiven. It can’t be as easy as that.
I feel hard done by if that is the case. Let’s think, the bombers who shout out God’s name, regardless what they call God, are you honestly telling me that the pearly gates of heaven will be opened for them?
They have killed people!!! Many do it in the name of God others for gain, as misguided as they are, how can our God take them in? What about the rest of us who try so hard to follow his word and live the way he wants us to live. We believe in the wrath of God, so why go through all of that, if I can make my life easier by being evil and then beg for forgiveness before I close my eyes. Well God is not silly; I guess he will know what is truly in my heart at the end. Are the words simply words or have we truly taken him in?
The drops of blood before me, sends a shiver down my spine
I realise it is my time to die
I stare at the floor and see the door leading to the depths of hell
All my sins lay before me and I begin to cry
I pray to God please, I accept you in my heart tonight
Forgive me my sins and I will repent
If only you take my soul tonight
God replies you have called my name and believed in me
I forgive you your sins, your mine tonight
Committing a sin is so easy, come on let’s be honest. Even the smallest of sins, are there such things as small sins or are they all the same? I lie to someone, I would consider this a small sin but I suppose it comes down to the repercussions of that lie. How many people did it hurt? Were lives lost because of it? Okay!!! No such thing as small sins. A sin is a sin.
Is it a fight to get into heaven, to be embraced in the arms of God? No, it isn’t, he makes it easy for us. We are the ones that make it hard for ourselves. No effort is needed. We believe that it is hard because Satan makes it sound easy to enter his kingdom of hell
Satan’s grasp pulls you in
It’s so easy to commit a sin
Satan will always be happy to take you in
No kneeling, no praying, no begging
Satan will open the gates of hell and say come in
Yet, God has done the same. He recognises we have faults and all he asks is for us to ask for forgiveness for our sins. I think it’s about intention. We don’t mean to be bad and asking for forgiveness means we acknowledge what we have done is not good.
God’s love is not hard to achieve
Good is what we strive to be
To open our hearts and let the light in
We kneel and pray and ask his forgiveness
The gates will open and the Lord will welcome us in
This a topic that can be debated till the end of time. I have to admit though, when I help another I get a high because I feel good about myself. I think that is all he wants, pure hearts, maybe a few faults that we can work on. He does not expect us to be saints, we are not all made that way. Believe in him and try to follow what his son died for. He gives us chances after chances and does not give up on us.
Death is not the end
It is only the beginning to be born again
A chance to live a life better than the last
To say to God please keep me this time
I have lived the life you taught me to live
I am now worthy to live in your arms
