Biblical Interpretations


Division among the chosen,
multiple ideals
trying to define
the same cross.
We kneel
or stand in prayer
seeking answers
to justify our interpretations.

Do we have a voice
for tolerance
or the word?
Do we assign as sacred
only those passages
with which we agree?
Are we not guilty
of taken sides
in our quest to package God
with the label of our own brand?

Denomination,
a word
which sometimes tastes foul,
shepherds
who have scattered the flock
and shaped the cross
with their own beliefs.
