The Problem With the World || Spoken Word Poem


What’s wrong with this world? Is it ever gonna change? There’s problems everywhere and so many things
we could blame. What’s the cause of all this hatred and abuse,
death and poverty? Is it the republicans or democrats? your neighbors or the people on TV? Is it the movies, parents, or lack of education? Is it the guns or drugs that has messed up
our nation? So many are confused and suffering all around
And we’re hoping some answers or atleast excuses can be found Some claim, The problem with this messed up
world is the problem of it’s Maker They say if this God’s in control, why doesn’t
He stop the madness and the hate? But wait, Don’t you realize the one who made us is perfect
God And it’s real odd to say that He’s to blame. He didn’t make us hurt each other, He just
lets us live free. So why do we get angry at God, then ignore
Him and live as we please. Some say the problem with the world is the
problem with the church. Because if religion’s supposed to heal, why
does everyone still hurt? Maybe the problem is the insanity of a fake
version of Christianity? Which claims to follow Jesus, but doesn’t
believe who He is or obey what He said. Is the problem the priests, the teachers,
and pastors? Maybe it’s the religious, because they become
servants to the rules and make these rulers their masters. Honestly, I don’t really know and have more
questions than answers But I do see a problem in all this fighting
and blaming And the complaining leaves me confused. Because pointing fingers hasn’t helped fix
a single life And it’s hard pretending that I’m always doing
all right Perhaps the problem with the world and the
problem with the church is the problem in me
Because often I’m the king of hypocrisy I’ll sit on a hollow throne and hope people
will follow so my name will be known
then I’ll post online how I’m helping the world so everyone will see,
In private I’ll hide my pride and sin and convince myself that’s my fake identity. Some days I’ll wake up with a passion to see
everyone saved And other days I notice I’m the first one
who needs to be changed I wish I could snap my fingers and fix the
world, but in the 24 years of working with these
hands I’ve realized that I can’t even repair the problem in me. I think we all see that our problems still
remain, we all have sin, problems, and pride But in love a perfect Savior came, and Jesus
took our mess on Him when He died then three days later He came back alive
And when you turn from your sin and believe only in Him. Your life will be changed and you will be
eternally saved I guess this poem is just me admitting that
I don’t have my own answers to my problems But I know that following Jesus is the best
and He’s always worth it And in this world and this mess Jesus Christ
is the only one who’s perfect And yeah, there’s still problems But in all of it, I know there’s love and
hope and I believe that begins with Jesus and I
pray that right here He will start Because I need Him to do a work in me and
fix the problems in my heart
