BEWARE

Beware of the dogs
The roving packs that eat whatever food they find
That live on tasty gossip and scraps of disjointed information
That roll over on fly blown carcasses,
Scenting themselves with the scandals of fallen souls
Vomiting out the carrion that revolted their stomach
Then eating it again as though it was some new thing
Beware of the dogs, don't give that which is holy to them.

Beware of the evil workers
Those who with impunity smite their fellow servants
And are intoxicated with the liquor of their own importance
Those that covet the wealth of their poor fellow brethren
Thieving and killing- just to heap it on their own consuming lusts
They lay snares, provoking, hoping to trip one up
Watching every thing one says just to bring a railing accusation
Beware of these evil workers, use your lamp watch your step

Beware of the concision
Those who will cut you down to size
And for self vindication point out the faults in others
Considering themselves holy, more righteous and pure
Fasting twice a week, giving tithes of all their possessions.
Who give their consent willingly, itching to cast that first stone
While the un-condemning Christ sits writing, deaf to the accusations
Beware of the concision -the uncircumcised in heart and ear

Watch and be sober
Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling
Take nothing for granted, Let him take it for himself.
Search to see if these things are the truth
Be persuaded and unwavering in your in convictions
Let your Yes mean Yes and your No means No
Be always ready to give and account of your reason for hope
Watch and be sober don't be tempted to let down your shield.
