I saw a man today
Sitting on a bench seat on a wall
Giving out leaflets of bible facts
Preaching about God nothing strange about that
But I listened to his words and they caught me off guard
He was reciting stuff I regard
As nothing less than fear mongering.
He said God was soon to return
And that basically all of us sinners would burn
Yes God is coming back and we’re all going to die
That was the message and his reprise.
When and why doesn’t religion ever wise up
That using fear, guilt and threats just don’t help much
Its a negative message no one wants to hear
Which is why I hold spirituality so dear
Because unlike religion
It promotes love and light
Accepts people make mistakes and are flawed yet that’s alright
Because the God we believe in
Is loving, compassionate and forgiving
Unlike the God portrayed by religion
Who preaches hell and damnation
And immortal sin
Which I think is something no divine being would be preaching.
