G.O.S.P.E.L. by Propaganda

It's the full story of life crushed into four minutes
The entirety of humanity in the palm of your hand crushed into one sentence
Listen its intense, right?
G - GOD | O - OUR | S - SINS | P - PAYING | E -- EVERYONE | L -- LIFE
The greatest story ever told that's hardly ever told...GOD
Yes, GOD
The maker and giver of life and by life I mean any and all matter and substance
Seen and unseen, what can and can't be touched
Thoughts, Image, Emotions
Love, Atoms and Oceans
All of it is handiwork, one of which is master piece made so uniquely that angels looked curiously
The one thing in creation that was made with His imagery the concept so cold, it's the reason I stay bold.
How God breathed in the man and he became a living soul
Formed with the intent of being infinitely, intimately, fond
Creator and creation held in eternal bond
And it was placed in perfect paradise 'til something went wrong
The species got deceived and started lusting for His job
An odd list of complaints as if the system ain't working
and use that same breath He graciously gave us to curse Him
and that sin seed spread through our souls genome
and by nature, your nature, your species you participated in a mutiny
Our, yes our sins
It's nature inherited, black in the human heart it was over before it started
Deceived from day one and led away by our own lust
There's not a religion in this whole world that doesn't agree there's something wrong with us
The question is, What is it?
How do we fix it?
Are we eternally separated from a God that may or may not have existed
But that's another subject
Let's keep grindin' besides tryin' to prove God is like defending a lion, homey
It don't need your help
Just unlock the cage
Let's move on, on how our debt can be paid
Short and sweet...
The problem is sin
Yes, sin
It's a cancer, an asthma choking out our life force, forcing separation
From a perfect and Holy God and the only way to get back is to get back to perfection, but silly us
Trying to pass the course of life without referring to a syllabus
This is us
Keep up the good deeds
Chant, pray, meditate
But all of that of course is like spraying cologne on a corpse
Or you can choose to ignore it as if something don't stink
It's like stepping in dog poop and refusing to wipe your shoe, but all that ends with
How good is good enough
Take your silly list of good deeds and line them up against perfection, good luck
That's life past your pay grade
The cost of your soul, you ain't got a big enough piggy bank
But you can give it a shot
But I suggest you throw away that list
Because even your good acts are an extension of your selfishness
But here's where it gets interesting
I hope you're closely listening, please don't get it twisted
It's what makes our faith unique
Here's what God says that's part A of the Gospel
You can't fix yourself, quit tryin' it's impossible
Sin brings death
Give God His breath back, you owe Him
Eternally separated and the only way to fix it, is someone dying in your place and that someone's got to be perfect or the payment ain't permanent
So, if and when you find a perfect person, get him or her to willingly trade their perfection for your sin and death in.
Clearly since the only one that can meet God's criteria is God, God sent himself as Jesus to pay the cost for us
His righteousness, His death functions as payment
Yes, payment
Wrote a check with His life but at His resurrection we all cheered because that means the check cleared
Pierced feet, pierced hands, blood stained son of man
Fullness, forgiveness, free passage into the promised land
That same breath that God breathed into us, God gave up to redeem us
And anyone and everyone, and by everyone I mean everyone who puts their faith and trust in Him and Him alone can stand in full confidence of God's forgiveness
And here is what the promise is
That you are guaranteed full access to return to perfect unity
By simply believing in Christ and Christ alone
You are receiving life
This is the gospel
G - GOD | O - OUR | S - SINS | P - PAYING | E -- EVERYONE | L -- LIFE

Setting a New Goal

I'm setting a new goal for myself. To write at least 1 poem each month. I really want to write more and perform what I have to say and have on my mind. So I'm setting this goal to try and help myself write more often.

So we make it our goal to please Him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. 2nd Corinthians 5:9

All I See is Red by Alert

V. 1
Dear God,
All I see is Red Rum
Murder on our back lawns
Black King Kongs with
Black pistols painting Teflons
Shooting with a red ink
and a vengeance
Blood Hounds
Hunting through the slums
with a gold badge and a fire arm
Similar to Saigon
Worldwide, Gun Fire
Big Shoulder City neck deep into a bonfire
Popo's picking up more bodies than the Red line
Shining like an albino's eyes,
Our bloody crimes,
Blood rhymes
spitting through these rap icons
from the streets to the opium farms
of radical Islam
while young bloods
sent to the slaughter in a surplus
And politics' a bloody mess
'Cuz All I hear is "Pay Us"
with Big Brother blue eyes
watching over every fence
cameras on the corners
like a red communist
Blood boiling,
Red Cobra coiling,
Watch for the poison!
The end times are red
like a fire burning.

Chorus: All I see is Red (4x)

Masses hyped off that Red Bull
like the bull and the hype that we read in the Red Eye
America in lust we trust for violence
just like bloody Rome, but in Modern times
Teeth Red, Vampires
Blood thirsty hits
get the big dimes
and blood hungry blockbusters
satisfy desire for our bloody minds
like diamonds in Uganda
Bloody mines
and headlines written in black
should transcribe to a red font
"cuz the glorify crimes and get the stock
Case in point: Hip Hop
Born from the body rock
but now promoting body counts
in large amounts, sounding out
Brainwashing shorties on their ipods
Red and Bach
popping every seed when its red and hot
You know its popping season when the temps are hot
and blood and coolaide
are poured out on the same blocks
but mankind's more concerned with
Red Stock, Red Wine,
and Red Bras
Red like a stop sign
Drive By
And All I see is black hearts

Chorus: All I see is Red (4x)

Come, see our bloody streets so red
The evilness outside so grave
So red
But Lord, you know our souls are filthy
So black
We chosen our own way instead
And made a mess of it all
All that is

But all I see is martyrdom
Christ's bloody arms
and a prophetic psalm
Mocking Roman guards
and a crown of thorns
Hearing it is done
Metamorphed my vision crimson
from the Risen Son
until I'm dead and gone
My eyes are red imaging
like heat seeking gun
Hope in Resurrection
Gotta run
Praying like Gethsemane
The day has come
and my cup is red suffering
But my path is like a refuge
Running in the red zone for freedom through artillery
Red marks the death of me
But Life be the Christ in me
And guarantee Booga's bloody thirsty for eternity
So I'm perching in the High Tower
shooting sharpened arrows at the enemy
God forbid,
I settle for less than a legacy
because I'm laced in a favored team
Sweat shop laboring
Red Eyed, Wes craving savoring
the bloody gift given
Hope In red letters
It is written
Now all I see is crimson

Green Lantern Review

So I just saw the new Green Lantern movie and I decided to give my review of it. If you don't know what or who the Green Lantern is, basically they are a large community of aliens called the Green Lantern Core and they all live one planet far out in space. The core was made by The Guardians and created a Green Lantern ring which can materialize anything by using energy from the one who wears it. Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) is chosen to be the next Green Lantern and the first human after one Green Lantern crash lands on earth. The movie is pretty good, but not the best superhero movie I've seen. Granted it is a intro/beginning movie to a whole series. So it had to tell of how Hal Jordan became a Green Lantern and really focused on him and his life. The main villian was somewhat good as a villian, but the source of his power was alot more intimidating. It was this huge blog smoke-like monster that was once one of the Guardians and it feed on fear and could kill anybody by taking the fear, literally right out of their body. The way Hal destroyed it, I thought, was good. There was no other real effective way than that. Overall, the movie was good, if you like superhero movies. Could have been better, more action and fighting. I would give it a 7/10. Not the best movie but not that terrible either. Go see it for yourself to form your own opinion.

My Thoughts on X-Men First Class

So I just saw X-Men First Class. I really enjoyed it and for me, it's a good movie. It's cool to see how the X-Men started out and the relationship between Charles Xavier and Eric aka Magneto. Now I don't really know how the series started officially and according to the comic books, but it's still a good movie. There's a hilarious cameo of one fan favorite x-men, but I don't want to spoil it if you haven't seen the movie. The plot of the movie is pritty good. But again, I don't want to spoil it. If you're a big X-men fan, you might or might not like it depending on how you feel, but I would say go see it. I give it a 8/10. Not perfect, but not terrible. A good movie experience.

A Thought from Bumps INF

This is from a Christian rapper who tweeted this recentley and I thought it was a real good message.

Love is "kind". The antithesis of kindness is manipulation. Whenever your kind to somebody with an ulterior motive, your being manipulative. Do you act kind to people just because deep down, you want them to "get saved" or "join your church" ? Love people. No strings attached. I often wonder, what if I denounced God, and became an atheist/agnostic, how many people would quickly drop out of my life?...Wouldn't that reveal who actually "loves" me??...just a thought..

Those I've Left Behind

Here is a poem I found that I really liked.

Those I've left behind

My friend I hope you'll never read these words upon my heart.
My fear is that I've let you down, and failed to do my part.
The time has come we talked about, that day when we last spoke,
The time when Satan's hold upon this earth would soon be broke.
My greatest wish for you had been that you should come with me.
But now a distance stands between us greater than the sea.
The Lord who saved me now has come, that's why I can't be found.
The sin I held was lifted, when He took it to the mound.
I'm not a greater man than you; I've never said I was.
There were none righteous; sin is something every person does.
I pray the choices that you made were chosen by your will,
And not because I was afraid to witness to you still.
Perhaps I should have spent more time to tell you of His grace.
My friend, I'd give so much to have you with me in this place.
But nothing that has happened here has ever been my choice.
I only tried as best I could to listen to His voice.
This letter gives me one more chance, to tell you of His love.
Of how He left His kingdom and its glory far above.
He came and died upon a cross for those who turned away.
That through Him, those who once were lost, could see that He's the way.
He saw our sins so long before we ever drew a breath,
And in his mercy, buried every sin with Him in death.
I know you feel abandoned as you slowly look around.
You'll see it more each day that comes; now evil must abound.
Those who did not trust in Christ, who once were left behind,
Now trust in Him with all their hearts, their hope, their soul, and mind.
You may not know his name just yet, but pray you'll recognize,
The one who rules the earth will be the wicked Son of Lies.
And for a time he'll seek to crush the Word before they speak.
But know our Lord will stand with them; He's strong when they are weak.
There's precious little time to pass from when we disappear,
And when our Lord will come again, the end of times is near.
Please know it's not too late, you see, His mercy didn't end,
The day He called His children home, and millions did ascend.
These times of tribulation are the final given years,
To trust upon the One who gave so much to spare our tears.
The blood He spilled upon the cross still flows for you today.
If you could earn this gift yourself, that price He wouldn't pay.
I'll have to leave you now to make the choice you must decide.
To die within your sins or join us at the Savior's side.
I mourn for all the suffering, in these times to be endured.
But know that if you trust in Him, salvation is assured.
I hope this letter will be enough, for time cannot rewind.
And the only words you'll hear from me, are those I've left behind.
