HAPPY SABBATH + The Righteous Man









E.  Great
Tha' Goodman, And
D. Pillar
Were The Noteworthy Notables in 
The High-Worth Note Church.

To Hear It Told
These Personages were
Personable
Precious Planks 
AND
Popular Pilgrims 
ON 
The Pathway of Purity!

They were
Dependable
Faithful
Approachable
Generous
Kindly
Helpful
Hopeful
Full of Good Works
AND
Keen To Keep 
The Christians
Constant and Consistent 
In their Ways and Walk 
With The True and Living 
Holy Eternal 
Faithful God in Glory -  Bless His Holy Name!

BUT ...

Lord help you if they have to Correct 
The Wayward Soul who has 
Tripped and Fallen and 
Seems Unable to Get Back Up Again!

You will Hear about 
Their Strength of Character and 
Force of Will and 
Knowledge of Right and Truth and 
The Inward Counsel that has Made Them 
Worthy Soldiers for Christ 
AND 
Able Protectors of The Holy Faith!

They are so, so
So Very Good and 
Saintly and 
Self-Satisfied and 
Serenely Holy and 
Supremely Righteous 
That it made your Skin - at least it made mine - Crawl!

I Didn't Understand 
Why This Should Be The Case for 
They would do Anything for Anybody, and 
Were ... Indeed
Really Good and 
Giving 
Holy People!

They were So Good and 
So Righteous that
Around Them
All Others Were Just 
Raw-boned Sinners!


Wait, them don't go to the toilet like reg'lar humans?!?


You must be meaning that them people Self-righteous!


Hmmmmm ....

Good Righteous People.

THAT is what is Nagging at Me!


I thought that Jesus Christ - Himself - said that Only God IS Good?!


Didn't Jesus also say that Our Righteousness must EXCEED that of The Scribes and The Pharisees?


Isn't it also stated that OUR Righteousness IS AS Filthy Rags?


Why you don't go and tell THAT to THEM People?!


Would you Believe that they have all Stated that IF and WHEN they die that their Epitaphs should all read:

"Here Lies A Righteous Man."

Lord, Help Us!

Didn't God's Word Say that we 
MUST 
Acquire Christ's Righteousness? ##


*******

The Righteous Men
Within The Church
Treated Jesus
Like He Was Lurch
Hunch-backed
Unlovely
Course and 
Rough
And
They Lifted Up Themselves
And In(EX)haled
.... Their Righteousness ....
Brown Snuff!

They Inhaled
They Cleared Their Throats
Hawked Up Phlegm
AND 
Expectorated A Groat
That Was Ugly
Putrid 
Nasty To Behold
As They - High and Mighty
Uttered
"Tin Gold!"

In All Their Ruminations
Treatises
AND
Lofty Utterances
Nary A Word
Of Almighty God 
Jesus Christ or
The Holy Spirit
Escaped 
Fell Out
Spilled Out nor
Was Cast Abroad
For These Sincere Men
Highly Esteemed
Were Of Their Selves
Righteous!
By God!
They Were CLEAN!

They Didn't Need God!
He Was Pedestrian!
He Had Given Them The Word
Now He Must Follow Their Plan
For They Are Leading The Clan!

These White-washed Tombs
Were Select
Elected
Men Of The Holy Cloth
Who Had Drunk In The Book
And, Sadly
Were Selling 
Watered Broth and
Special Occasion Froth!

Beloved!
BELOVED!
Don't Buy What They Sell
For That Purchase
Will Only Land You 
With Satan In Hell!

We MUST Give Up 
Our Own Righteousness
AND
We MUST Seek After 
Jesus Christ's Own
AND
We MUST Not Follow After
Those Who Communicate
Via The Dial-A-Devil Date Phone!

Jesus Christ Died
For Our Sins To Atone
So ...
Get Away From Those
Lying 
Lawless
Deceitful Hireling Shepherds
Who Worship At Self-Lover-Satan
See-Myself-As-God's Throne!
