In the Name of God

Is it truly right
to cause harm to another
allowing violence
death and destruction
pain and sorrow
all in the name of God
do you believe
He will praise you
for a job well done
taking a hand that is bloody
and lead you into heaven?
what horrors will continue
how may more must die
in the name of God?
it is by our actions
that the wounds are inflicted
on our gracious Lord
over and over again
do you not understand
what we do to others
we do to Him?
in the name of God
this is His message to us
yet few hear
even less understand
it is by our actions
we will be judged
