Christian showman

(from my archives I share one poem with you all my dear friends)

Christian Showmanship

 

 

 

May I introduce to you

God’s man of our time

The preacher of the hour

The great evangelist

Mrs, Rev, Mr, Dr

Who has travelled widely

In Britain, America, and Europe

Let’s give him a hand

Then the roars and claps and ovations

 

This beautiful sister

Is a pillar of the faith

And is charitable

As her name goes

God has used her so greatly

To bless us at various times

May we listen to her angelic voice

Then the roars and claps and ovations

 

Christians are in show business

Why, why, why?

Because the world advertises

So we can do the same

 

Today we build and destroy

Great men of God

With our flattery and sophistry

Messages vary according to extent

Of popularity with audiences

A big word for the clappers

A small word for the others

 

The methods of the world

Have never succeeded with Christendom

And we stand to lose

In the end

 

Brethern let us use our old tools

Of simplicity and humility for

Jesus was no showman

Venerating none of the sons of

Mortal men

And Christendom stands to gain
