Church song

I don’t want to go to church
All they preach is materialism
But there is nothing wrong with materials

It is just that I have deeper needs than that
My name is Jesus
And all I want to do is the will of the father

I have food to eat that makes me happy
I have food to eat that deeply satisfies me
It is doing the assignment Father gives me

They tell me that I should seek first the kingdom of God
And all things will be added to me
But I hear that once in two years

Sad, sad place to go, church
But they say do not forsake
The assembling together

But when we assemble together the agenda is earthly-minded
Morning, afternoon and evening
It is a bread and butter agenda

The agenda of God,
Which will give me reward in heaven
They teach me not

They say
God will not allow me to heaven
If I am not materially full here on earth

I don’t want to go to church
Because what they offer me is a dose of selfishness
Mixed with the dough of love of self

They say that Jesus did not say
That I should love others more than myself
But that I should love others as myself

But is that the focus?
Don’t I love myself enough?
But I am being asked to love myself the more

We cannot see to carry the cross
When the bible is read
with the glasses of self-love?

I am unhappy as I go to church
The bride of Christ is in the rat race
Not to win the heavenly race

No time to adore her king
No time to listen to his heart beat, love as he does
And run with his mission for impacting lives around

At best we have a di-vision
Love of the world mixed with love of God
What we get is a lukewarm mix.

The fire of devotion to God is not enhanced
Rather the water of worldliness is poured
I leave there angry, burdened and bothered
