ROAD TO PERDITION : Pride + PRAYER: Lord, Teach Me To Be Humble




All False Gods
Are Brittle
AND
Of Time
A Total Waste!
Wood
Plaster
Stone
Paper
Silver
Or Gold
They Are All The Same
AND
Worshipping Them
Makes The Worshipper As One Insane
For An Inanimate Object
Cannot Help A Person
Nor Can It One's Origin
Nor Destination
Explain!

A Man Who Has A Man
As His God
Is Batting Zero
In The Eyes Of The Creator God!
Likewise The Person
Who Worships Self
Houses
Lands
Access And Prominence
Is A Fool
For It Is Readily Apparent
That Lying Satan
Over Such A One
Holds Total Dominance!

What Is Man Profited
If He Gains The Whole World
AND
Loses His Own Soul?
Where Is The Blessing
In The Blessing Gained
Outside Of Heaven's Fold?

Where Is The Soul's Salvation
Where The Soul Knows Not
The Living God
But Runs With The Big Dogs
AND
Plays Footsie With Satan
The Vividly Exposed Fraud?!

Rich In Goods!
Burdened With Trespasses!
Wasted By Iniquity
Living To Indulge In Abominable Practices
AND
Refusing
Through False Pride
To Ask The Living God
In Mercy
To Have Pity!
Such Is The Plight
Of Those Who Against
The Holy Spirit Fight
Preferring
To Sink Into
The Dank Darkness Of Gross Sin
- Unforgiven -
Rather Than To Bend
Bow
AND
Humble The Self
Before Its Savior
AND
Consciously Willing To Die
So As Not To Admit:

Oh, God In Heaven
I Know Not The Way
I Really Need You And That Is No Lie
So, Help Me, I Pray!

Lucifer Pretended To Be Good
Expressing Concern For The Residents Of Heaven!
Pride Made Lucifer Ugly
AND
Pride Cost Lucifer
An Eternal Home In Heaven
AND
Pride Will Cost Erring Man
A Home Prepared By Christ
- Especially For Him Whom He Loves -
In Highest Heaven!

Pride Makes Men 
Vicious And Mean
AND
Shows That Their  Hearts Are Unclean
AND
Their Willingness To Do Evil
Is By All Observers Plainly Seen!

Live, Oh, Man Foolish!
Why Would You Permit Searing Guilt
Bolstered By Unremitting Pride
To Cause You
Eternally To Die?
Submit Yourself To God!
Resist The Devil!
Acknowledge To Almighty God
That You Are A Mere Man
- Grossly Weak -
AND
Hold Nothing Back
From Him Who 
- Alone -
Your Dying Soul's Salvation Seeks!

Sink Your False Pride!
Speak To The Living God 
For In Him You May Freely Confide!
The Savior Is For You
AND
Waiting From You To Hear
So, Swallow The Fool's Pride
AND
Seek To Have Your Soul Saved
AND
Be No More Satan's Slave!

Residing Under The Agency Of The Holy Spirit
Supremely Satisfied
Should Be Your Soul's Sole Goal
So Choose, Therefore
In Jesus Christ To Live
For There's No Valid Reason Now
For You To Die With A Cold Heart 
AND
In The Great Day 
Forever Die
As One No Longer Presumptuous And Bold!

Jesus Saves From Sin
So Put The Idol Down!
Cast False Pride To The Ground
AND
An Authentic Victory Win!

PRAYER:

Heavenly Father,
I Come Before You As A Child
Often Prideful
And
Regularly Foolish
But, I Don't That Way Want To Die!
Have Mercy Upon Me!
Please Forgive Me, I Pray
And
Teach Me To Be Humble
And
Help Me To Ever Walk 
Before You That Way!
Hear My Cry
And Answer
According To Your Will
And In Your Way
In Jesus' Holy Name I Plead!
AMEN.

The Real Difference
Between
Apparent Goodness
AND
Genuine Goodness
Is What Each Receives
In Their Ultimate
God-Given Reward!
