A Stiff-necked Horror

2 Chron 30:7-16

Don’t be a stiff-necked horror,
Nor even a sleazy kind of whore!
With the Lord you got places to go!
He can turn you captors into benefactors
Turn those horse-drawn plows into tractors!
I say walkin’ with the Lord is a deal
Much better than a lot of free meals:
Deliverance from punishment eternal
Talkin’ ’bout the kind that’s infernal,
Down there with the devil and his minions
(Over hell that fiend has dominion.)
Remember Asher, Manasseh and Zebulun
Humbled themselves and came to Jerusalem.
Some men from those towns were true (11)
Had a heart from God to see ’em through.
Took down those nasty incense altars (14)
And threw them in the brook of Kidron;
Slaughtered those Passover lambs (15)
Hopin’ to keep from those back-slidin’ jams.
Well, the priest did sprinkle that blood! (16)
No, immersion was not the mode.
Think on it my Baptist blokes
No need to make those converts to choke!
