"Behold! the Marx of Jesus..."
"Behold! the Marx of Jesus..."

Almost every contemporary proposal to bring freedom into the church is simply a proposal to bring tyranny into the world." -- GK Chesterton

"See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ." -- Colossians 2:8

"Then the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question...." -- Mark 12:18...

"Behold! the Marx of Jesus..."

"Unite! Communers of the spirit!"
The socialisting Angel harks.
"Revolt from orthodoxy!"..
Come to Jesus via Marx!"

We're leanin' now toward Lenin,
Hear the Gospel here and N.O.W....
Sadducees who view Messiah's Word,
Through the lens of Chairman Mao.

We've erased all pesky references,
To goats and fire and hell...
And the letters of Apostles?
Well,.... we'd rather read Fidel!

We're at peace with Brother Castro,
We're more than tight with Father Che.
Our kindred hearts are knit together.
Bless us, Father, as we prey.

We're Zen-Jesu-Buddhi-Hindists...
We're inclusive to the max!
N.O.W. let us have your children.
We've good intentions,
So relax!

Bill Moyer's our Chief Guru...
Oprah Winfrey's Number Two,
Jesus Seminar's our gospel....
(We enjoy good Gnostic Brew!)

The spirit moves among us.
We feel the feeling at our core...
It's the "Smiley-Face-a-Tingle",
That transports to Yonder Shore!

Our theology is earthbound,
And Utopia's our aim...
Never mind those trampled freedoms...
Forced Equality's our game.

Our Father's now Big Brother,
And with Big Brother's Word we side;
"More Power to the People!"
With Ho Chi Minh we coincide.

You can catch our act on TV,
PBS and CNN...
We're the ones with horned-rimmed glasses,
And fetal blood upon the chin.

We define for you what "Faith" is...
We're the Keepers of the Gate.
And what we're keeping's very little....
And Our opinions carry weight!

We ruminate in stately towers,
Made of iv'ry bright and tall,
Espousing CommuGnostic theories...
That's our mission!
And our Call!

We're the wolves who prowl around you,
All pressed and wooly-white...
Dredging up those ancient heresies,
Then we proclaim them to be right!

We're Pro-Choice!...We're Proletarian!
And for "tolerance" we stand...
How that translates in the marketplace..
Is...."Hey, cool, Whatever, man!"

Our Christos Manifesto
To the masses it appeals.
Das Kapital Kommandments...
Our Holey Law of Touchy-Feel.

Our Collective Lefty Leanings,
Have left us leaning on The State.
Isn't that what Jesus taught us?
Spirit, Son and Fathergate!

Jesus said "See what I show you!"
"Behold, I bear the Marx that bled!"
"Storm the ramparts of tradition!"
"You're better red than dead!"

"Rise up, downtrodden masses...
Slay those Devil Companies!
There's Milk 'n' Honey 'cross the Jordan,
In Redeemed Commune-ities."

* * * * * * *

It's the same ol' dead religion.
A web the world has spun before.
Those regurgitated Heresies,
Are still pounding on The Door.

The Dark and Deadly Wonderland,
Beckons to The Bride again...
Fundamental Humanism's
Rabbit Hole of Idol Sin.

* * * * * * *

Lord, lead us not into temptation....
Help us walk the narrow Way.
Give us Grace, O God, to follow
Your Holy Word.... and to obey.

"Liberalism may stimulate the mind; it cannot sustain the church." -- Alister McGrath

"...the apostasy of Christian ministers and priests preaching this false gospel is a scandal of the age and inexcusable because it takes no great theological subtlety to know better..." -- John Senior

"And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. More than that, we are found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead.....But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.....The last enemy to be destroyed is death." -- 1 Corinthians 15:14,15...20...26

"Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" -- John 11:25,26
