An Unholy World by Raymond A. Foss
We live in a time
a world that Paul warned us about
violence and righteousness claimed in your name
the name of God to justify the slaughter
the maiming of innocents
the unholy partnership
the fellowship of light and darkness
the incongruity, the iniquity
that converted apostle of Christ
foretold, urged to be avoided

We are called to be separated,
to be in this world
but not of this world
to prune and to focus
to use the thorns in our lives
heed their quiet call
to cleave to you almighty savior
redeemer of our sins
when we fall into the trap
let down our guard
and knock the temple off its foundation
seeking easier paths
sharing too much with the enemy

2 Corinthians 6:14-18
