Pastor, Pastor
Author: Ben Franklin


"Accept Jesus,
let go of the materialism
and you will be filled with Love,
that Love will be your riches"

Funny Pastor pastor,
outside of church I heard you referring
to women as bitches.

You bumped into a stranger,
shouted profanity and gave them the evil
but in church you said that if I did not
give my life to Jesus
I would not have eternal life
when I die.

It will destroy you is what you preached,
money is the root of all evil,
and without it do not expect to go far,

Funny Pastor pastor,
Lovely brand new Mercedes
Is that your car?

Jesus will be there,
He has helped millions and millions
through the ages,

I believe you Pastor pastor,
But why do you have to take half my wages?

They were both naked,
ate the forbidden fruit,

Pastor pastor where did you get 4000 from
for that great looking suit?

Pastor pastor
I dont think this church is for me,
You have a light,
but myself?
I simply cant see.

God is the way,
you shout "seize the day!"
I will pastor,
but gods Love is free,
and I refuse to pay!

B! It's sad that this applies to some "men of God" living the opposite of what they preach and teach. that says there a "pastor", "bishop" or what have you, lacks the qualifications and responsibilities of the title they use.

Right on B! Right on!
