Free in Christ?

Ancient teachings
Questionable instructions
Twisted views of women and slaves
Stories and parables
Of love and miracles
Tales of faithfulness of the brave

This God of theirs
Demands love "or else torture"
An eternity in hell for what?
Mere sins of one life
For perpetual strife
To me that won't make the cut

Sitting in their pews
Clinging to their holy books
Unable to fathom any other
They call this heist
"Free in Christ"
Where, in what they follow after?

Trapped in their belief
Following blindly it seems
"I'm saved by his graciousness!"
I see nothing free
Just limited philosophy
Flawed and incompleteness

I'm slow to grasp
Understand this cult
This group with conviction
So strong, unbending
It's not accepting
Their so called liberation

It comes with too much fine print
