Demon of a Riddle

by Steve Ray on April 24, 2019

From where God placed me I did fall,
I knew the Christ and knew of Paul.
They showed great power, this is true,
But I would never flee from you.
For though your number was complete,
I was not one you could defeat.
When you told me to go my way
I thought I’d have the final say.
When the time came you did flee
With wounds exposed for all to see.
For in your clothes you could not hide
You left without a show of pride.
I was a demon, this is true
All I asked was “Who are you?”

After you give up, if in fact you do :-)
Read Acts 19.

I don’t necessarily consider myself “Republican,” though I have always voted Republican since they are the lesser of two evils […]

“Ecumenical” Bible Studies

April 4, 2018

Without a teaching authority or the tradition of the historic Church, this cartoon shows what many Bible studies are really like.
