Blood

Two timbers tied together, The wood is stained forever, How simple it may seem, To picture red beam upon beam, Streaks of crimson mark the grain, Never washed by the rain, A final breath atop the hill, The ‘Place of the Skull’ had it’s fill, The Prince of Darkness had his ways, He kept the Lamb of Light busy 3 days, The Savior’s mercy knows … Continue reading Blood

The Bible doesn’t imply that the 1 sheep is black, the Bible implies that all life is worth trying to … Continue reading An example of flawed Biblical application
