                 SHORT and POINTED                            The Liar and The Listener               Posted 2/27/19

    Do to a technical glitch we are unable to post our planned sermon, so by popular demand we are reposting the Liar and The Listener taken from Exodus 23:1-2                               


                                       Short and Pointed
                                  The Liar and the Listener
 Exodus 23:1-2
1  Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.  
2  Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:


The Liar and the Listener went all about the town.
The Liar told her stories just to tear her victim down.
And the Listener stooped with willing ears
--- as she stood on Holy ground.


The Liar claimed to know of things that no one else had seen.
The Liar claimed her righteousness to present herself as clean.
The Listener is one, who wants to hear the Liars tale
of how the victim did her wrong and why he was so mean.


The Liar does not want the world to ever know the truth.
The facts of all the sin she tells are taken from her roof.
The Listener is blind in lust, to hear of more and more.
She hears the same from other friends and claims it all as proof.


The Liar counts on numbers, to gain the upper hand.
The Liar needs the Listener to spread across the land.
The Listener begins to follow, doing all the same
The victim never says a word, not bowing to their game.


"Repeat the lie, tell all you can, this sinner he must pay.
Believe the lie, it makes no sense, but keep it anyway.
Be witness to the lie, you've heard it many times;
believe as if I had the proof;" so eager will she say.


The Liar is a friend of hers, the victim he is not
The Listener adds her spices to the ever smoldering pot.
The victim dawns his armor, being charged from every side,
"Oh tell me Lord, please tell me Lord, when will they be caught."


Three souls arrive at heavens gate, Saint Peter signs them in.
Then ushered to the judgment room, court will soon begin.
The Liar and the Listener will soon be thrown out,
Their names were for the lives they lived, it's what their all about.


The victims tears become his joy, his sorrows washed today.
The Liar cast a hate filled glance as she was dragged away.
The Listener was judged far worse, by claiming Holy ground.
The righteousness they claimed as theirs, was never to be found.


The Liar spoke the words, that Satan had to say.
The Listener believed the lie and spread it every day.
Together they will walk the trail that leads to dark demise
While the victim rests in Jesus' arms, his armor set aside.
