The Gospel Of Lucifer
Author: Mark Spencer

vinebar

Lucifer is very subtle
Heís such a tricky sod
He manipulates the bible
And our belief in God

He makes us think weíre good enough
And part of Godís elite
When raptured weíll be lifted up
While others face defeat

And itís our interpretations
Of promises misheard
That led to these assumptions
About the holy word

And Lucifer has forged the way
That old deceitful guide
He leads us to the slaughterhouse
By kindling our pride

He lets us think that all it takes
To receive salvation
Is to acknowledge sacrifice
And divine creation

But true belief is more than this
It is a path we walk
Itís more than just declaring faith
For that is only talk

Yet some believe theyíve reached the top
Of Godís most holy list
Though living by our Lordís commands
Is something they dismissed

While some have never read the word
That they claim to adore
To read the bible is a task
That they choose to ignore

Others covet earthly treasures
Saying itís their reward
Because they are such faithful souls
Their wealth comes from the Lord

And why do some believers think
Once theyíve been born again
That they are somehow greater than
The souls of other men

Is an orphan less an orphan
If his parents have died
Does he outshine abandoned kids
When standing side by side

For Lucifer convinces us
That we have earned our wings
By saying we believe in Christ
Weíre made of better things

And on these lies heís built his church
And made it look like grace
While those who congregate within
Say itís a holy place

A variation of the truth
Is preached within these walls
A message that the proud desire
Echo throughout its halls

The tune played by this piperís flute
Will lead them through the gates
And Lucifer will cast them down
To their eternal fates

The gospel that will puff you up
Is only a faÁade
That gospel comes from Lucifer
It doesnít come from God

For Jesus teaches penitence
He washed the sinnerís feet
He told disciples how to find
His fatherís banquet seat

For only as a child shall you
Enter the banquet hall
The MAN who tries to enter there
Pursues another call

The call of that pied piperís flute
Has cast a fatal spell
It leads him to Luciferís door
The banquet hall of hell

Excellent message!

This is an excellent message that I wish all Christian could read! Too often I encounter this kind of Christian! I once had a woman look down on me for being a non-denominational Christian, then she puffed up and told me proudly that SHE was a Methodist, as if that was better somehow. Mind you, this was in a bar where I was working at the time! She had a drink in her hand, and I had a guitar pick in mine. Some people. Anyway, I especially liked the line:

The gospel that will puff you up
Is only a faÁade
That gospel comes from Lucifer
It doesnít come from God
