    "I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance."
    What do you suppose would be the key word in this divine sentence?
    Who among us is without a sin and able cast the first stone?
    Can anyone forgive sin by their own power but God alone?
    ^^^
    Excellent opening stanza ... such truth within the words.

    Who among us is without a sin and able cast the first stone?
    ^^^
    I'm not sure if you were going for ...
    Who among us is without a sin and able, cast the first stone
    or ....
    Who among us is without a sin and able (to)cast the first stone?

    Jesus said be ready for you know not the hour I come
    It will be a joyful time for the faithful and sorrowful for some
    Lord forgive me for the times I have fallen and all those who fell
    Into the abyss of suffering because we have accepted Satan's hell
    ^^^
    Very deep words you've penned here.

    Favorite lines ....
    - Can anyone forgive sin by their own power but God alone
    - I am not called to examine the speck in my brother's eyes
    - Lord forgive me for the times I have fallen and all those who fell
    - And the entire ending stanza!

    Magnificently penned, with deep truth.
    Excellent read

    I didn't really like this piece. For me, it didn't really flow, and the subject matter was not engaging. However, my favorite piece of the poem was the first two lines of the third stanza, because i liked what was being said, as well as the rhythm and flow of it.

    I am becomming a true fan...

    Though with this one, everything flowed gorgoeously up until the last paragraph/segment. That just seemed to go in a different direction even though it was tied to the rest of the structure, it seemed to lean a little to the left like the tower of Pisa... imperfect in it's own way, but still adored even for it's imperfections alone.

    My favorite line was "The wise should remember every word he said"

    no i cant relate to this poem at all because i am atheist but i could still feel your emotion about 'God' and that is what counts.

    i give you a 5/5 for the poem and the feeling you put into it.

    I can see why there is a WIN beside the name of this poem.

    It is amazing. The rhymes were flawless and the meaning behind the poem is just beautiful.

    I haven't seen a lot of poetry about religious views on things. I couldn't stop reading this poem from the go. I was enticed by every word and it made me think of myself and my own life

    The first and last stanza of the poem are my fav's. Such honesty in them and the words said are perfect

    This has an unbelievable amount of meaning, I liked everything about it, especially the way you put and wrote the first verse 100/100

    Well done Mike, no forced rhyme, the truth clearly stated from the Word. Self righteousness are blinders for the eyes, His righteousness is freely given upon regeneration, never earned. When we are drawn to Christ by the Holy Spirit we are granted "Godly Repentance" along with the Gift of Faith and become "New Creations" Born into the Body of Christ, the Church, this all is God's work carried out by Jesus. Keep up the good work. Ken, gracefaithgift.com
