Testing the Spirit (I John 4:1-6)

A million spirits, words and souls,
In contradiction claiming truth,
Each seeks to make your spirit whole,
But most will rape or murder you.
Then how discern their end intent,
Or how to sort the true from false?
Trust not in feeling or your bent,
Or what the popular exalt.
The truth is not in Hollywood,
Or on the streets of walls and wars,
The world brings only pain and blood,
When married to her many whores.
The truth is found in Jesus Christ,
And in His scripture guided all.
For He himself is Word of Life,
And brings salvation by His call.
So seek the truth in Him alone,
And test all spirits by His Word,
His Spirit shines when truth is shown,
For Scripture is all truth we heard.
