Regarding Moral Absolutes

by Henry S. Juhala
(O'Fallon, IL USA)

Human standards
Yardstick measures
Civil order
Hubris rewarder

But treasuring the ark
Misses the mark
God’s grace it tatters
Only one thing matters

Faith and belief
Of Jesus Christ’s
Life, resurrection
Death, ascension

Love your neighbor
Be a bondage slayer
Love your God
On legalism trod

Moral absolutes
Produce many disputes
Loving in grace
Is redemption’s place
