The False God Of The 21st Century

"For the Word that God speaks is alive
and full of power; it is sharper than any two-edged sword,
penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life, the soul,
and the immortal spirit, and of joints and marrow,
exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging
the very thoughts and purposes of the heart."
Hebrew 4:12

Without a doubt or a second guess,
the way of Internet is an awful mess!

 And I am not saying this in jest.

  I have clearly seen how this mercurial deity,
the false god of 21st century worship,
 too often robs many gifted individuals
 of their personal best.

Far too many have willingly exchanged
 their unique, God-given abilities to make
themselves a household name.

To be a star of their own "vlog"
can be quite exciting indeed,
 a boon to their self-esteem,
 a momentous gig,
only to find themselves suddenly
 treed by a passel of nasty, 
  foul-mouthed pigs.

(Not the animal swine, but
the human kind.)

Many an unwitting soul has fallen prey
 to a faceless human's comment,
written in words so unspeakably vile 
they make one want to vomit.

As these perilous last days peak,
 if those who are lonely and tired of
looking for love in all the wrong places,
as the old country song goes,
 would only turn to the Word that God speaks!

 He already knows the condition
of their tormented hearts,
 Only He can give them the acceptance they crave,
for His Word is alive, and full of power,
a compass of shining light, directions for living right,
in this dark and lonely hour.
