poem ~ if God said

If God said 
in the beginning was the word and the word was God and the word is God,
Why do we make "The Word" the bible when it wasn't written until after Jesus death?

If God said
you must become like a little child to know and understand me,
Why do we believe we have to hold onto the truth we think we know in our adult minds to figure out Jesus?

If God said
children are a gift from God,
Do I have to read this to know and experience it or is it true even if I don't?

If God said
I am the way, the truth, the life,
Why do we believe that this means The Bible?

If God said
in Me you will live and breathe and have your being,
Why do we believe that through The Bible is to live and breathe and have our meaning?

If God said
He is not a respecter of persons, 
Why do we put more importance and priority on The Prophets in The Bible as having more truth or understanding of God then what God reveals to us individually?

If God said
come unto me,
Why do we turn this to mean come to the church to spend time with God?

If God said
I have loved you with an everlasting love,
Why do we believe we can ever do anything to be removed from God's Love?

If God said
in this world you will have trouble,
Why do we seek a life without trouble?

If God said
I have come that you may have life,
Why do we believe life only happens in heaven?

If God said 
the things you do here and now have an impact,
Why do we say that there is no significance in earthly life?

If God said
you shall live by faith,
Why do we expect to see the path for our lives laid out on a map?

If God said 
your sins have been buried and covered up,
Why do you continue act like they are alive?
