My friend, singer and musician Andrew Perri www.myspace.com/andrewperri , who is doing his due diligence in matters of the Spirit, sent me the following poem written by John Hodgson:
“I will not bask in the light of your celestial glories.
Time has corrupted them.
Ambition has bloodied them.
Greed has twisted them.
Humanity has broken them.
In lazy freedoms my soul finds peace, whilst yours bends under confining redemption.”
He wanted to know what I thought it meant. My response was this:
I like it! I think it means that Christianity has been corrupted. It has! The Christ wouldn’t be in the Vatican. Mother Theresa was the closest thing to the Christ in recent times. From what I have seen all religions develop their own commercial agendas to save your soul when in fact you are your own redeemer. In my post “Merry Christmas” I have some quotes from the Christ that show a different Christ than the one usually shown.
What do you think it means?
