Some people quote Scripture but their actions are opposed to what they preach.
Some never miss church; they wear nice clothes, and use eloquent speech.

Some pray on their knees five times a day facing the east.
Some wear fine robes celebrating the Lord’s Last Supper feast.

Some speak in a strange babble, and claim the Holy Spirit dwells within them.
Some pray in temples wearing long beards and follow the Law that was made to condemn.

Some sit and meditate to calm their souls to balance their peace and tranquility.
Some claim to have lived many lives before and attest to wisdom and humility.

Some testify in having spiritual insight to a particular verse that unites them together.
Some swear to have divine guidance from God only to bind them selves like a tether.

Some believe they are righteous but instead of love they spread doubt and disbelief.
Some judge everyone without thought and cause others to suffer spiritual grief.

Some spread the truth of the gospel and are witnesses of God’s love.
Some know the Supreme Judge who is on the throne in heaven above.
